Today sees Arsenal's women's team travel to Sweden to face Gothenburg in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final, which if you'll remember the Gunners lead 3-1 after the first leg in London. The match will start at 2pm Eastern, and there's actually a stream being provided by the Gothenburg official website. So we can comment on something that we can actually see, rather than just a bunch of tweets.

Arsenal defeated Liverpool in their last match Sunday, a 3-0 win in the FA WSL Continental Cup. They are unbeaten so far this season in all competitions, which would be a nice streak to keep up.

Anyway, feel free to talk about the match in the comments section below. Try to keep the conversation on the game at hand; I know the men's team plays later this afternoon, but let's make this thread for the women's team and keep other comments in the Everton preview thread (and the match thread for that game, when Ted posts it).

Here, for your information, is the dotcom's match preview. Also, the team Twitter, for live reports if you can't watch the stream.
