Video highlights: Arsenal qualify for 15th UWCL Quarter Final despite champions Lyon 0-1 win by Michelle

It was a disappointing night for our Gunners at Emirates Stadium last night but Arsenal secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, for the 15th time.  A scrappy first-half goal for the reigning champions Lyon was enough for them to secure the 1-0 win which is Arsenal’s first loss in Europe this season.

Both sides were fairly evenly matched and there were chances at both ends of the pitch, with a near-miss from Wubben-Moy on 22 minutes.

Just before half-time a deep delivery from Lyon’s Bacha was headed by former Gunner Danielle van de Donk, beating Manuela Zinsberger and resulting in a scramble in front of goal with the ball dribbling in off Maanum putting Lyon one goal in front.  Vivianne Miedema was stretchered off just before the break after seeming to overextend her leg and our Gunners ended the first half a goal down and a player down.

There was no change to the scoreline at full-time through Arsenal managed a few near misses as they tried valliantly to equalise.

  1. 10 points each and we beat them by the slimmest of margins (a goal).
    It was great we mauled them by 5 goals to 1 on their turf in the opposite fixture.

    1. Lyon were missing 10/11 players for the first leg, that’s why I said at the time not to get carried away because of it.this game showed I was right,Lyon were a different proposition.more importantly, they are slowly getting players back and getting stronger. they haven’t peaked yet!!

        1. That’s the thing with football,you don’t always get what you deserve.i respect your opinion Pat but bar the last 2 corners in added time, Lyon were the better team over 90mns.having said that I don’t know how one of them chances didn’t go in,I guess it was one of these days.i agree,the game against Juventus should be a “cracker” as you so nicely put it.😉in order to win,our fowards need to play more as a unit.i could be wrong but it looked to me that some of our players are going for personal glory,trying to score when there were better options.COYG

      1. Our Gunners have had just as hard a time of it since then. Injuries are not great.. We had Rafaelle & Williamson out in the 1st leg. It’s tough..
