Arsenal will be looking to gain a step closer to qualification to the UEFA Women’s Champions League tonight as they are back in action against Juventus at the Emirates Stadium.
Last time out against Juve, the Gunners rescued a draw in Turin with Vivianne Miedema getting the equalising goal.
Since then, The Gunners have seen Lionesses captain Leah Williamson return to their ranks along with Rafaelle Souza.
Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall is still without midfielder Kim Little and forward Lina Hurtig for tonight’s match – one which he expects to be a tough one with a major impact on the group outcome.
“I expect a competitive game. I always think it’s very interesting when you’re playing a European team with this little time in between the games because now the tactical component of what the teams learned from the first game will really play a big part – in set pieces and in open play situations. I see this as a really long half-time break. So, let’s hope that we have used this to our best advantage.”
Arsenal are currently top of Group C, and a win for the Gunners tonight would put them in a great position to finish as group winners with defending champions Olympique Lyonnais next up at The Emirates.
