Umeå's assistant coach Steve Galloway spent the weekend checking out Umeå's quarter final opponents Rapide wezemaal in their 4-3 win over Standard Femina and commented that Marta and Hanna would have a field day if Rapide didn't play better than they showed in that match.
Maybe Rapide shaped up a bit. Umeå won rather comfortably with 0-4, but coach Jeglertz commented "we did what we're supposed to" and added that they will do better in the home leg next week.

By the way, Umeå went to Belgium on a chartered jet, paid for by TV4. Umeå had explained to the broadcaster of the Swedish Football Awards Gala that they coundn't attend, since there were no connections to Belgium early Tuesday morning. But TV4 really wanted the team, and Marta, on the show and chartered a plane for the team.
