With A Win Over HB Kge, Arsenal Moves Closer To The Last Eight Of The Women’s Champions League

Posted by

Centre-back Lotte Wubben-Moy dedicated her first Champions League goal to injured teammate Leah Williamson. “That was a goal for Leah, we’ll deeply miss her,” she said. “That’s her speciality at the near post, if I can do anything it’s to tribute that goal to her today.”

After Caitlin Foord’s first-half goal, Wubben-Moy rose highest to power in Jordan Nobbs’ corner as Arsenal sought a second against Danish champions HB Kge. Late on, striker Vivianne Miedema added a third as Arsenal pushed closer to a quarter-final spot in the Champions League. Arsenal must win one of their final two games, against Barcelona and Hoffenheim, to finish second in the group ahead of the Germans.

Miedema, defensive midfielder Frida Maanum, and left-back Steph Catley were all introduced near the hour mark to spark the home assault. The home team was almost punished for their profligacy, but Lydia Williams’ reaction save denied Maddie Pokorny. Wubben-Moy sealed the win with a powerful header from Jordan Nobbs’ corner, and Miedema added the third.
