Arsenal will play Gothenburg FC in the quarter finals of the UEFA Women's Champions League after the draw was announced at UEFA's Headquarters in Nyon.
Gothenburg are playing in Europe for the first time this season after finishing as runners-up in the Swedish League last season. They have taken well to the competition having won all four matches so far, having knocked out Fortuna Hjorring in the last round, 4-2 on aggregate. In the previous round they cruised to an 11-0 aggregate victory over WFC Osijek of Croatia.
The match will evoke memories of Arsenal's quarter finals last season when they also faced Swedish oppositions. They drew 1-1 in the first leg with Linkoping FC at Boreham Wood but picked up a 2-2 draw in the return match in Sweden, enabling them to progress to the semi finals on away goals.
Arsenal will host the first leg on 14/15 March with the second leg taking place in Gothenburg a week later.
Should Arsenal make it through to the last four, they will play either FC Malmo, also of Sweden or three time European Champions FFC Frankfurt.
This means that Laura Harvey's side have avoided potential confrontations with last season's Finalists until the Final, if they get there. Reigning European Champions Olympique Lyonnais will host the first leg of their quarter final against Brondby IF of Denmark whilst FFC Turbine Potsdam, conquerors of Glasgow City in the last round, have been paired with FC Rossiyanka of Russia. The draw still leaves the possibility of an all-German Final at Munich.
