Football Champions League Women: Bayern vs. Arsenal WFC – Live Scores – Quarterfinals First Leg – 2022/2023

    Misunderstanding between Lohmann and Schüller: Bayern can get out of the high pressing of the guests and play the ball out to the right to Lohmann. The midfielder takes a quick look at the center of the attack and wants to stage Schüller with a deep pass. However, the striker did not share this thought and did not start in depth.

    Another cross flies into the Munich penalty area. McCabe breaks through on the right and plays a high ball into the dangerous zone. Viggósdóttir can still defuse the cross with his head. The Gunners are currently making a more determined impression going forward.

    In this first quarter of an hour it becomes clear how similar both teams are. Both Bayern and the guests are strong on the ball and want to force the opponent to make mistakes after long periods of possession.

    The Gunners just let the ball run, wait for the gap and Foord finds it! The outside player goes into a direct duel with Rall on the left, puts the ball inside and crosses inside with the right. Blackstenius rises into the air at the level of the five, but can only hit the ball with the top of his head and thus puts the header well over the goal.

    Both teams are still struggling with excitement, and now and then there are bad passes in the build-up game. At Bayern, it is clear that coach Alexander Straus uses a five-man chain against the ball – Bühl moves in on the right and completes the defensive line next to Rall.

    Lohmann brings the ball up to the second post, but the Kumagai who have run in are a good one or two meters away. The ball therefore ticks out of the goal without further contact.

    Arsenal survived Bayern’s first phase of pressure unscathed and are trying to bring calm into their own game. The hosts have something against it and start pressing early – after just a few minutes the duels get down to business. Schüller is placed by Maritz on the right and there is the first free kick for Bayern.

    Less than 30 seconds have been played and pure chaos reigns in the Arsenal penalty area! Rall brings a cross from the right unhindered into the box and in the middle Schüller and Magull try to finish one after the other. The Gunners throw everything in between and successfully block the shots.

    Bayern toast and the game is on!

    It’s not just the home advantage of more than 10,000 fans in the Allianz Arena that speaks for the women of Munich tonight: Bayern have been unbeaten since October and thanks to this winning streak they’re still maintaining their chances of winning the championship. With only two points behind VfL Wolfsburg, the Bundesliga has not yet read the full story. The situation is different at Arsenal, who started the season only moderately and then had to digest the already mentioned long-term injuries. The Gunners are currently fourth and five points behind Chelsea, who, as reigning champions and cup winners, hold all the aces in their own hands again this season.

    How did the two teams secure their ticket to the premier class quarter-finals? FC Bayern held their ground in Group D and finished second behind last year’s finalists FC Barcelona – both teams had 15 points after six games, leaving Benfica Lisbon and FC Rosengard behind. Arsenal’s group was a little tighter: In Group C there was a three-way battle between the Gunners, Olympique Lyon and Juventus Turin. With four wins, one draw and one defeat, the team from London secured the group victory ahead of Lyon.

    The visitors from London were also successful in their last competitive game, beating Reading FC 4-0. Arsenal didn’t play a league game last weekend, however, as the game was in the FA Cup, from which the Gunners were eliminated prematurely. This gave the team more time to prepare for the Champions League. Coach Jonas Eidevall only changes his first team once: Wubben-Moy rotates from defense to the bench, while Swede Blackstenius comes into the team in attack. Williamson will probably move into central defence, just like she did for England at the European Championship. For Zinsberger in the guest box, the old club will be reunited today. Striker Miedema also has a Munich past, but, like Mead, she is still out with a serious knee injury. Arsenal have to do without two top performers on offense.

    FC Bayern was a guest in the cathedral city last Saturday and got enough self-confidence for the international stage with a comfortable 5-0 win over 1. FC Köln. Alexander Straus seems to be convinced of his eleven, because the same players are allowed to start as in the league. Kumagai and Viggósdóttir form the central defence, while winter signings Hansen and Rall defend on the outside. Simon is back in the squad after muscular problems but seems only an option as a wild card. In midfield, Zadrazil and Stanway clear behind Bühl, Magull and Lohmann. The set Schüller plays in the striker. The hosts will again be without long-term absentees Gwinn and Dallmann, along with Tainara, who is absent with an ankle injury.
