UWCL: Birmingham City 1-0 Arsenal

Birmingham City Ladies got a 26th minute goal from Remi Allen and held on for a 1-0 victory over Arsenal Ladies in the only UEFA Women’s Champions League quarterfinal between clubs from the same country.  Allen scored as the result of a strong, patient build up the right side, blasting home a volley off a cross by Chelsea Weston.

The tie will conclude Sunday afternoon at The Hive where Birmingham will be looking to add an away goal that will force Arsenal to win by a margin of at least two goals.

Much of Monday’s match was played in the midfield.  The sides were credited with a joint 14 shots–9 for Birmingham, 5 for Arsenal.  The visitors did not get a single shot on goal making for a relatively easy clean sheet for Rebecca Spencer.

The all-English quarterfinal was the only close match of the opening legs.  Tyreso and Potsdam will play 2nd legs only because they have to.  Tyreso leads Nuelengbach 8-0 after hat tricks by both Marta and Christen Press.  Potsdam won by 8-0 in their away leg at Torres CF.  Holders Wolfsburg topped Barcelona 3-0 with that one heading to Spain.

The Nuelengbach-Tyreso match is Saturday with the other three on Sunday.
