Ladies Draw Arsenal in UWCL QF

Birmingham City Ladies face English opponents in the UEFA Women’s Champions League after drawing Arsenal in the quarter-final draw held yesterday.

Blues will face the 2012 WSL Champions at home first on March 22 or 23 with the return leg to be played a week later. Holders Wolfsburg were drawn against Barcelona, Italian side Torres play German side Potsdamn whilst Swedes Tyresö FF will take on Austrian side SV Neulengbach.

Whilst Arsenal represent a much logistically easier and cheaper away trip for the Blues Ladies it will no doubt disappoint those dreaming of a trip to the likes of Barcelona. Arsenal beat Blues Ladies home and away in the WSL last year and Blues will have to be at their very best if they are to progress further on the road to Lisbon. They will also have to do this without influential captain Laura Bassett who opted not to renew her contract at the end of the season.

Should the ladies make it through a trip to either Tyreso or Neulengbach will await them (April 19/20 and 26/27) in the semi-finals.
