UEFA Women's Champions League: Preview, Tips and Team News

The final phase of the UEFA women's champions league qualification round beckons, with 12 group stage slots at stake.

Arsenal women

The first leg of these fixtures will be held on 20/21 of September with the second leg a week after. Defending champions Lyon, Chelsea, Barcelona and Wolfsburg have their spots already confirmed out of the 16 teams that will feature in the 2022/23 UWCL.

Arsenal vs Ajax

Arsenal women kicked off their WSL campaign with a resounding 4-0 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion WFC. Beth Mead bagged a second half brace after Kim Little and Stina Blackstenius had given the Gunners a comfortable first half lead.

Jonas Eidevall will set his sights on returning to European soil, looking to do better than last season’s quarter final reach.

The Gunners missed out on last season’s WSL title by one point, losing out to Chelsea on the last day. With just one automatic UWCL slot given to the WSL, the one-time champions league winners will have to participate in the last round of qualification.

Ajax Vrouwen finished as runners-up behind Twente in the Eredivisie last season, and have begun their UWCL season since mid-August. The Daughters of the Gods defeated Kristiansands 3-1 and then Eintracht Frankfurt Frauen 2-1 in previous qualification rounds, and will now face another hurdle against the Gunners. They have also kicked off their league campaign with a 4-0 home win against Fortuna Sittard Vrouwen - which saw Victoria Pelova bag a brace.

No major injury news from either side, as Jonas Eidevall and Suzanne Bakker are expected to retain the same line up as their previous games.

Arsenal Women Potential XI: Zinsberger; Wienroither, Williamson, Souza, McCabe; Walti, Little; Mead, Miedema, Foord; Blackstenius

Ajax Vrouwen Potential XI: Kop; Kardinaal, De Sanders, Doorn, Verhoeve; Grant, Spitse, Sabajo, Pelova, Weerden; Leuchter
