Arsenal Women take on Zurich at Emirates in their Champions League campaign By Michelle
The Gunners continue their gruelling schedule of games as they prepare for their UWCL clash with Zurich, at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday 27th October, 8pm kick-off, followed swiftly by the next match in their WSL campaign, on Sunday 30th October against West Ham Women.
Arsenal Women beat Ajax 2-1 on aggregate to get into the group stages of the 2022/23 UEFA Women´s Champions League. They achieved a spectacular away win over Lyon, beating the reigning champions 5-1 in their first clash in the Champions League group stages. Lyon were the top seed in group C and widely tipped as the favourites in this game, but Lyon couldn´t find an answer to Arsenal´s pressing and link up play.
Zurich were drawn into group C, ranked 4th in this group.

Arsenal haven’t played FC Zurich in the champions league since 2008. The Gunners won that game easily 7-2 with Arsenal´s now club captain Kim Little scoring a hat-trick. See the match report here.
Juventus played Zurich in their UWCL match on Wednesday October 19th where Juventus achieved a 2-0 win over Zurich.

Zurich are rank outsiders in this group and could be Arsenal´s only ´easy´win though, as Jonas says, there is no such thing as an easy game in this competition. This is Zurich´s debut in the group stages of the competition.
