The Gunners qualified by virtue of defeating Ajax 3-2 across two legs in the qualifying round, having finished 2nd in the WSL last season. Arsenal won the tournament in 2007, the only British team to do so but have been eliminated in the quarter-finals in their last two UWCL campaigns.
Arsenal were beaten by seven-time winners Lyon in the 2011 quarter-finals. The clash with Juventus reunites Arsenal with their former boss Joe Montemurro who guided us to the league title in 2019, while Arsenal played FC Zurich in 2008 in the competition and ran out 7-2 winners. Kim Little scored in that game.
