UEFA Women's Champions League 2019/20: Fiorentina vs Arsenal - tactical analysis tactics

While the Champions League returns for the men next week, the women’s European campaign gets underway this week. The new campaign will have a similar storyline for all teams involved, to try and best serial winners Olympique Lyon.

Arsenal travel to Florence for their first UEFA Women’s Champions League game in five and a half years. Given Arsenal were unseeded in the draw, they will be grateful to have avoided European heavyweights Lyon. Fiorentina, however, look a threat having finished second in Serie A last season. They will look to avoid another hammering from an English side having lost to Chelsea by 6-0 in their return leg of the UEFA Women’s Champions League last year.

Having opened their season with a 2-1 win against West Ham, Arsenal have a mouth-watering clash against Manchester United on Monday. This game represented an important start to the European campaign for Joe Montemurro and Arsenal as they look to mount a serious run at the continental competition.

This tactical analysis will showcase the tactics that Fiorentina and Arsenal used in this encounter.
