With short-term contracts signed, friendly matches underway and coronavirus testing continuing, Europe's top teams are ready for the resumption of the Women's Champions League.
Defending champion Lyon is seeking its fifth straight title and is the team to beat. Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Barcelona, Wolfsburg, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich and Glasgow City are also in the quarter-finals.
The knockout tournament is scheduled to begin Aug. 21 in Bilbao and San Sebastian, in Spain's northern Basque Country where local health officials fear a "second wave" of the coronavirus is underway.
Like the men's Champions League, the women's competition won't be using the format of home-and-away quarter-finals and semifinals. Three wins at neutral stadiums and the trophy is yours.
"Everybody knows that in 90 minutes of football, anything can happen," Krystyna Freda, an American striker on loan to Glasgow from Apollon Ladies club in Cyprus, told The Associated Press.
Glasgow has a tough test against German league champion Wolfsburg. The winner of that match plays either Barcelona or Atletico. The other semifinal will feature the winners of Lyon vs. Bayern and Arsenal vs. PSG.
