- Women’s Champions League qualifier: Arsenal 2-2 Ajax
- Blackstenius and Little on target for Gunners
Arsenal face a tricky trip to Amsterdam next week, after a 2-2 draw at home to Ajax put their hopes of reaching the Champions League group stage in the balance.
The Gunners came from behind in the first half, with Stina Blackstenius cancelling out Romée Leuchter’s strike before Kim Little put the home team ahead from the spot. A controversial offside decision denied the Gunners a second penalty and Leuchter then ensured that the Dutch side would be returning home with the tie level.
