- Women’s Champions League: Ajax 0-1 Arsenal (2-3 on agg)
- Arsenal were denied concussion substitution late in game
It was far from pretty, but Arsenal edged into the Champions League group stage, a goal from the Super League record scorer Vivianne Miedema earning the team a feisty 1-0 away win against Ajax, 3-2 on aggregate.
The Gunners were forced to play a lengthy period of added time with 10 players after Lisa Doorn crashed into the back of the substitute Beth Mead’s head, forcing her off. The Arsenal manager, Jonas Eidevall, asked for use of a concussion sub but was denied, with Arsenal having used all three of their regulation changes.
