6 minutes: Hurtig gets the ball around the area well, but her cross is blocked. Little then fouls and gives away a free kick in the Zurich half. But the shot fell short and Mead intercepted the pass. However, Arsenal are unable to capitalize on the play, with Miedema spending too much time on the ball when she should have had a shot.

4 minutes: Arsenal win a free-kick after Mida is fouled, he’s also in a great position. Catley takes the shot and Romero heads Beaty’s shot away.

2 min: Zurich have the ball and have the first chance! Marchese throws the ball over, but Maritz manages to clear it. Arsenal with the ball now to try and settle.

Reset! Arsenal 0-0 Zurich

Here we go! Can Arsenal continue their unbeaten run? They are unbeaten in 11 matches.

Becky reached out via email and she said: “I’m at the Emirates tonight, I’m looking forward to watching the women’s game and I hope the men will recover on Sunday as I’m also coming to the game against Nottingham Forest.” As for Starbursts, I’m now confused – are you suggesting there are people who don’t think purple is better and green is worse???” I know for sure! I have yet to meet anyone who thinks green is best, is there anyone who does?

It will be interesting to see how many people there are to attend today’s match, the Women’s Super League attendance record was broken at the Emirates last month!

The players warm up at the Emirates! Just over 10 minutes to go:

The match of “Barcelona” against “Rosengard” with “Lyon” ended with the score 4:1 and Juventus finished 1-1. Arsenal v Zurich, Benfica v Bayern will also kick off this evening.

Jonas Eideval hopes to achieve the same result they came up against Lyon. He said: “We go game by game to apply ourselves as best we can in every game to make things very simple. What potential and what ceilings do we have? It will be necessary to find out. But if we give 100% both in preparation and execution, then we won’t have to regret anything. I think if you do that, nights like this can happen in Lyon. It’s not a guarantee, but it could happen.”

Arsenal player Frida Maanum, who starts from the bench this evening, the club has announced ready to face Zurich: “Every game is important now and we know what we did in Lyon. Then we have to build from there and it’s a completely different game with Zurich and yeah, we just have to go out and play our game. We know what awaits us tomorrow.”
