Chelsea held and Arsenal beaten

Both Chelsea and Arsenal went into this week’s round of matches on the back of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup Final a few days earlier, and both faced tough home matches as they looked to confirm their places in the quarter finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Chelsea were up first on Wednesday night against Juventus and it turned out to be a frustrating 90 minutes as they could not make the breakthrough against dogged opponents. Despite recording 25 shots to Juve’s two, Joe Montemurro’s side dug in to grind out a goalless draw which means they stay in second place in the group. Sam Kerr had a goal disallowed for offside and Erin Cuthbert saw a shot tipped onto the bar by Pauline Peyraud-Magnin but it was not to be and Chelsea are not quite yet through, a point in their final game against VfL Wolfsburg will ensure they top the group. Wolfsburg meanwhile kept their hopes alive by beating Servette FCCF 3-0, including a goal from former Arsenal striker Jill Roord.

Arsenal hosted FC Barcelona at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night and once again found the reigning Champions to be too strong, Barca running out 4-0 winners. In front of a crowd of 12,232, Aitana Bonmati, Jennifer Hermoso and Fridolina Rolfo put Barcelona three up at half, with Hermoso completing her double after the break.

The Gunners will have to avoid defeat in their final match at Hoffenheim - who beat HB Koge 2-1 - in order to confirm their progression to the last eight.
