In the round of the last 32 of the Womens Champions League, the Italian runner-up Fiorentina has the English Champ Arsenal as a guest. A very exciting comparison, as we find, so we included this match in our Bet Tip analysis. Can the Londoners again make an attack on the trophy or prove the Italians in the first leg as too strong? This game will be kicked off on Thursday, 12.09.2019, at 19 o’clock.
▪️Will Fiorentina win for the first time against an English team?
Fiorentina finished second in the league last season behind Juve, the gap was just 1 point. The Italians played in the preseason against an English team, but lost it to Chelsea clearly: 0: 1 and 0: 6. As in the year before, the first time in this competition, came the club from Florence in the second round. In 2017 Wolfsburg was beaten. This young women’s team became Italian champion in 2017 and won the cup competition in 2017 and 2018. In this season, the team of coach Antonio Cincotta has not yet completed a league game. The team shot in the preseason 3.18 goals per league match, while they had to accept an average of 0.59 goals. Against this strong defense, so also our predictions Arsenal must first get through to be able to triumph in Florence.
The English league is one of the best in Europe and currently ranks third in the UEFA ranking. Italy still has some catching up to do here and is ranked 8th. You can also see it on the women’s team of Fiorentina, which was founded in 2015. The Fiorentina have won 2 of their 4 home games in the Champions League, both times against Fortuna Hjørring. In both games, the team scored 2 goals. But against Wolfsburg and Chelsea there were already twice before their own audience a lesson. If we take the comparison with Chelsea as a benchmark for the encounter with Arsenal, our prediction will be nothing to celebrate with the Fiorentina in this game. The first leg could still be relatively short.
▪️Can the English champion Arsenal win in Florence?
Arsenal qualified as English champion in the past season after 5 years for the first time again for the international business. The Champions League winner of 2007, at that time still as the UEFA Women’s Cup, was never worse in 12 participations than in the quarter-finals of the most important European club club. 2014 was the last time in the last 8 of this competition. After 4 seasons in a row with 3rd place in the English Womens Super League you were in the preseason for the 9th time English champion. In the end, they were a whopping 13 points ahead of runners-up Manchester City. The North Lords are our prediction favorite in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final in Florence. Arsenal have a good record against Italian teams – in 5 games they won 3 wins, each with 1 draw and defeat. The team of Joe Montemurro started well in the new league with a 2-1 win over local rivals West Ham.
