PREVIEW: VfL Wolfsburg v Arsenal

Arsenal will be hoping to qualify for the semi-finals of this season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League when they take on VfL Wolfsburg in the second leg of their quarter-final tie at the Volkswagen Arena on Thursday.

The Gunners netted a last-gasp equaliser in the first leg at the Emirates Stadium a week ago as the game ended 1-1 and Jonas Eidevall’s side will now be hoping to complete the job in the second leg in Germany.

VfL Wolfsburg head coach Tommy Stroot has confirmed that the She-Wolves will again be without the services of midfielder Pia-Sophie Wolter through injury while Joelle Wedemeyer is suspended. Forward Ewa Pajor is fit and will be a member of the squad at the Volkswagen Arena.

Arsenal head coach Eidevall has remained tight-lipped on the availability of his players. The Gunners boss has indicated that ‘some but not all’ of injured trio Rafaelle Souza, Mana Iwabuchi and Caitlin Foord will be available for selection. Forward Beth Mead is suspended following her caution in the first leg.

The UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final second leg tie between VfL Wolfsburg and Arsenal at the Volkswagen Arena kicks-off at 5.45pm on Thursday evening. The match will be available for fans to stream live on DAZN.
