Jonas Eidevall leads Arsenal Women to Champions League semis after a decade-long wait
After a rollercoaster start to their season with an injury crisis, Arsenal Women under the guidance of Jonas Eidevall have found their footing and stormed into the semi-finals of the Women’s Champions League after a decade. Their success culminated in a breathtaking display against Bayern Munich where they quashed a first-leg deficit to secure their place in the semis. Their month-long triumphs also include a League Cup win against Chelsea, ending their four-year wait for silverware.
Their form and belief have grown from strength to strength with a resolute Eidevall at the helm. The team boasts a strong process, and Eidevall is confident that positive results create beliefs. The club’s recent achievements have undoubtedly bolstered their confidence, and a European semi-final is now on the horizon. With just a meagre three-point gap from WSL leaders Manchester United, there is a genuine possibility of Arsenal Women winning three trophies this season.
Their victory against Bayern was momentous, with over 20,000 fans witnessing the game and setting a new record for a women’s match in England. Eidevall attributed their success to playing in the Emirates, the home of the men’s team, and endorsed the idea of a permanent residency for the women’s team there.
Arsenal Women’s recent success has been achieved without two of their star forwards, Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead, but forward Stina Blackstenius has stepped up to fill the void. The team has shown remarkable resilience, and former England defender Laura Bassett believes that overcoming adversity has fueled their fire. With record-breaking attendance, a dedicated culture, and a manager that believes they can conquer any opposition, the Arsenal Women are a force to be reckoned with.
