Halftime: Arsenal 4-0 Slavia Prague
A brilliant first half of football from the hosts, who have dominated possession. 

It took them 20 minutes to find an opener, but the flood gates have well and truly opened and they've made it 4-0 before half time.

9-2 on aggregate and it's damage limitation for the visitors heading into the second 45.

1 minute added on at the end of the first half.
43' Van de Donk lobs the ball over the Slavia captain and has a go from distance on the half-volley - a wonderful bit of skill! She's unable to score her second of the night as it flies just wide.
OFF THE POST!
42' Arsenal hit the woodwork again! A perfectly weighted ball into Mead and she attempts to chip the Slavia keeper who is off her line. Another good attempt for the hosts!
39' Maier chips a fantastic ball into Miedema in the box. The forward's touch is good but Votikova is quick to react and take the ball off Arsenal's No.11.
Chance for the visitors!
A rare chance for Slavia through Blackwood with a fantastic effort. The left-back's shot draws a save at the near post from the Arsenal keeper!
ANOTHER ARSENAL GOAL!
32' Van de Donk's header isn't cleared properly by the Slavia defence and Roord fires the ball into the back of the net on the half-volley!

Bara Votikova making headlines
Slavia Prague goalkeeper Bara Votikova's story has been published in many newspapers across the past week.

She is a vlogger, comedian, author and presenter in the Czech Republic with over 450,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel with 76million views. Bara told BBC Sport:

"People [following me on YouTube] are hopefully starting to like football because of me. That's something I'm trying to build here.

"My social media was never initially about football - it was mostly comedy - and then it became popular so I started to share my football life and a lot of people seemed to like that, so I'm trying to show people how this life of a pro football girl goes."

Will Miedema strike again?
An incredible game from Vivianne Miedema in the first leg separated the two sides, with the Dutch international netting four in Prague. No other player has had more goal contributions in the 2019/20 WSL campaign, scoring two and assisting three.

 

Could Slavia find a way back?
Despite being 5-2 down on aggregate and most likely already out of the competition, Arsenal shouldn't take Slavia lightly by any means. The side from the Czech capital have reached the quarter-finals of the last two competitions, only falling to strong opposition in Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg.
Arsenal the only English side left in the competition
If the Gunners succeed over Slavia, then they will be the only English side left in the competition. Arsenal have dropped behind Chelsea in the league, but they will look to push on and carry their momentum on when they face Brighton in the Continental Cup this weekend.

 

Manchester City fell to a defeat last night against Atletico Madrid, despite Pauline Bremer pulling back a late goal in what was an exact repeat of last year’s affair.

Arsenal go into tonight’s match 5-2 leaders on aggregate, and Joe Montemurro’s side may field a weaker squad to help aid their WSL efforts
Kick-off time
The Arsenal Women vs Slavia Prague match will be played at Meadow Park, in London, England. The kick-off is scheduled at 19:30GMT.
