I’m so hyped for today’s match. As I’ve pointed out, the Arsenal Women are the only English team left in European competition this season. They are also the only English team to ever win the competition. They’re looking to add to their record as the most successful women’s team in English football history.
And they are damn fun to watch. Vivianne Miedema is the best striker in the world. She bangs in goals and racks up assists at an outrageous pace. Kim Little and Jordan Nobbs may be the best midfield duo in the world right now. And Danïelle van de Donk, in addition to being a fantastic footballer, just has “it” - that fiery, competitive attitude that you want all footballers to have.
PSG are no slouches. They boast an impressive array of attacking talent. This should be a great match. Come on you Gunners.
Arsenal - Zinsberger, Maritz, Williamson, Beattie, McCabe, Walti, Van de Donk, Little, Evans, Miedema, Mead
PSG - Endler, Lawrence, Paredes, Dudek, Morroni, Geyoro, Dabritz, Diani, Nadim, Bachmann, Katoto
