Arsenal are back in the Emirates tonight as they host Wolfsburg in the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Women’s Champions League. Ties see the leaders of the Women’s Super League face the top of Germany’s Frauen-Bundesliga for a place in the semi-finals, with defending champions Barcelona the team to beat in European football’s elite competition.

The Gunners were beaten by Barcelona in their last appearance at the Emirates in December but finished second to champions Spain in the group stage to progress to the knockout stages. Wolfsburg, meanwhile, topped a group containing Juventus and Arsenal rivals Chelsea to reach the last eight and are in impressive form to lead Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Arsenal have won their last five matches in all competitions ahead of a crucial week of their season. Jonas Eidevall’s side will host Tottenham Hotspur in a massive North London derby on Saturday before traveling to Wolfsburg for the second leg next week. Arsenal will look to emulate Chelsea, who they lead by one point in the WSL standings, by reaching the Champions League final this season after Emma Hayes’ side were beaten by Barcelona last year in Gothenburg.
