Fiorentina Women’s FC will take on English champions Arsenal in the Round of 32 of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The tie will be held over two legs, with the games taking place on 11/12 September and 25/26 September. Fiorentina will host Arsenal for the first leg before travelling to London to take on the North London outfit for the return leg.

“Having faced Chelsea last year, we will now play English champions Arsenal,” said coach Antonio Cincotta after the draw. “We’ll play with our heads up and try to give everything we have against a team that is aiming to win the whole tournament.”

“There are still great difference in standard in the women’s game – look at the fact that it was Arsenal that knocked Chelsea out of the running to qualify for this season’s Champions League, while we found it very tough going against the Blues. We know it’s a tough first game for us in Europe, but we’ll give it our all because we have a gruelling 180 minutes ahead.”
