Arsenal Women v HB Köge – Champions League preview; it’s live on Arsenal.com

by Andrew Crawshaw

Our Women flew to Denmark yesterday prior to the third of their six Champions League games.  They play the Danish Champions Köge both this Wednesday and also at Borehamwood next Wednesday, 17 November.

Köge is a small town about 45 minutes south of Copenhagen and their team became the Danish Champions for the first time last season.

The Club has a partnership with Capelli Sport and the American Football Academy Slammers FC.  Capelli Sport is a sportswear and footwear company based in New York, they are now stated to be the owners ofHB Köge.  Slammers FC are based in California and are using the partnership with Köge as a way to progress their players form youth to European professional life, as well as broadening the experience of coaches.  They were also expected to change their club names to Slammers HB Köge to reflect the tie up.

Currently HB Köge have four American players of whom only the goalkeeper Marckese is a regular starter :-

  • Kaylan Marckese – Goalkeeper
  • Kelly Fitzgerald – Midfield
  • Maddie Pokorny – Forward
  • Hannah Adler – Midfield

In the Kvindeliga this is the current table

Team P W D L F A GD Pts
1 HB Köge 12 11 1 0 27 6 21 34
2 Dbk Fortuna 12 8 3 1 31 13 18 27
3 Brøndby IF 12 7 1 4 27 19 8 22
4 FC Thy-Thistedq 12 6 1 5 23 21 2 19
5 FC Nordsjæll 12 4 3 5 11 13 -2 15
6 KoldingQ 12 4 2 6 12 17 -5 14
7 AGF Aarhus 12 2 1 9 12 27 -15 7
8 Aalborg BK 12 0 0 12 4 31 -27 0

HB Köge are undefeated and looking ‘nailed on’ for the title

In their two Champions League group games so far they have lost away to Hoffenheim by 4 – 1 and at home to Barcelona by 2 – 0; although had they taken the early chances they had could certainly been two goals to the good in the opening seven minutes or so.  It would be wrong to think of this as a walk over for Arsenal.  They aren’t mugs.

Having said that Arsenal are overwhelming favourites to win this match and to do so comfortably.  We have a far greater wealth of experience in our squad and player for player almost certainly a higher skill set.

Expected starting Lineup

Manuella Zinsberger

Noëlle Maritz, Leah Williamson, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Steph Catley

Kim Little, Lia Walti, Katie McCabe

Nikita Parris, Vivianne Miedema, Beth Mead

Subs from

Lydia Williams/ Fran Stenson GK (I’m not sure if Lydia is fit, Fran has been recalled from her loan to provide cover)

Anna Patten, Simone Boye Sørensen, Jen Beattie, Frida Maanum, Mana Iwabuchi, Jordan Nobbs, Caitlin Foord, Tobin Heath

I think we will win by at least a three goal margin with Viv getting at least two.

The game is being streamed by DAZN worldwide.  The kickoff is at 17:45 and arsenal.com will be showing the game.

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    26 minutes gone in Denmark and Arsenal have taken the lead. A fantastic left footed free kick from Steph Catley into the top corner of the net giving the keeper no chance.

    Should be two but Nikita Parris had a penalty saved. Kim Little who nirmally takes our penalties is getting a rest.
