The dates for FC Barcelona’s first Women’s Champions League tie have been set. The match between Barça and Arsenal Ladies is scheduled for Monday, September 26, at 19.00 at the Miniestadi. The return leg will be played on October 4 at Meadow Park in London at 16.00 (Catalan time).
September 26 will be a historic day for Azulgrana Women’s football. It will be FCB’s first official Champions League tie in the history of the Club. The road to success won’t be easy, however. Arsenal Ladies, who won the title in 2006, are an experienced side in the competition, but the team led by Xavi Llorens are excited to test their mettle against the continent’s elite teams.
Round of 16, against Liege or Potsdam
After the first round, the winner of the tie will play against the winner of the Liege-Potsdam playoff in the Round of 16. In the event of a Barça victory against Arsenal, FCB will play the away leg in Barcelona and the return leg away from home. The Round of 16 matches are scheduled for October 31 and November 8.
