The UEFA Women’s Champions League draw has been relatively kind to the Arsenal with the opponent Ajax Amsterdam.
The Dutch team got through Round 1, beating Kristianstads DFF from Sweden and Eintracht Frankfurt from Germany.
Full credit to them as they were the underdogs in both games.
They have a squad full of current and up-and-coming Dutch international players that featured at the Euros last Summer, like Lize Kop, Lisa Doorn, the Netherlands captain Sherida Spitse, Nikita Tromp, Romee Leuchter and the playmaker/winger Victoria Pelova, who has said she is interested in playing the WSL.
