Arsenal beat Bayern to book first UWCL semifinal place in 10 years

Arsenal beat Bayern 2-0 to book their first Women’s Champions League semi-finals in 10 years on Wednesday.

After a 1-0 defeat in the first leg courtesy of Lea Schuller’s strike in Germany, Arsenal recovered from the early loss of captain Kim Little to win in front of 21,307 fans at the Emirates.

A Frida Maanum strike set them on their way before Stina Blackstenius’ header settled the tie.

The victory would have been more comfortable but for a fine goalkeeping display from Maria-Luisa Grohs and some wayward finishing from Arsenal.

Jonas Eidevall’s Arsenal book their first Champions League semi-final since 2013 when they lost to Wolfsburg, who also knocked them out in the quarter-finals last season.

Arsenal will now play the winner of the tie between Wolfsburg and Paris Saint-Germain.

Paris Saint-Germain traveled to Germany with a 2-0 first-leg win.
