Arsenal qualified for the knockout stages despite a defeat overshadowed by a worrying injury to Vivianne Miedema. The Gunners had shaded the first half but moments after Steph Catley had made a brilliant block to deny Delphine Cascarino, Frida Maanum got the final touch in a scramble and was credited with an own goal.

It went from bad to worse for the hosts when Miedema went down unchallenged and was carried off on a stretcher in tears. Having had just one effort on goal in the first half, the Gunners were unable to do much better in the second and in the end Lyon held on comfortably for a crucial three points.
