UEFA Champions League

UEFA Champions League Today: Arsenal Vs Barcelona H2H, Team News, And Predicted Line-Up.

Arsenal kicks off their Champions League group stage with a trip to defending champions Barcelona at the Johan Cruyff Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Barcelona defeated Chelsea in last season’s Women's Champions League finals and continued their outstanding form this season having won five out of five in the Primera Division, scoring 35 goals and conceding just one.

Arsenal has also enjoyed a perfect start this season with four wins from four games which includes a 5-0 win over Manchester City at home a few weeks ago to leave them top of the Women's Super League. The Gunners are drawn with Hoffenheim and Koge and the defending champions Barcelona. 

It is the first time the Women’s Champions League has had a group stage since it was rebranded from the Women’s UEFA Cup and the Arsenal new coach Jonas Eidevall is confident his side will be competitive against the Spanish giants. 

Simone Boye Sorensen and Malin Gut will be absent for the trip to Spain due to injury while every other member of the team is fit and ready for selection. 

Hermoso and Ouahabi are coming back from long-term absences and could be doubted to feature in the encounter, while the rest of the players are available for selections. 

The two teams last met in the group stage of the 2012 competition as Arsenal came progressed as favorites with a 3-0 win at Spain and a 4-0 win at home.

Predicted Line up: Arsenal: Zinsberger; Maritz, Beattie, Williamson, McCabe; Walti, Little, Maanum; Mead, Miedema, Heath.

Barcelona: Panos, Torrejon, Paredes, Leon, Serrano; Engen, Guijarro, Putellas; Hansen, Oshoala, Martens.
