Arsenal's UEFA Women's Champions League hopes are still very much alive after they were beaten 2-1 by FCR Duisburg in the first leg of their quarter final.
Laura Harvey's team had fallen two goals behind but an own goal gave them a crucial strike and a real chance when they take on the reigning European Champions in the second leg at Bishop's Stortford on Sunday.
Star striker Inka Grings almost gave Duisburg an early lead when her lob hit the bar but the Euro 2009 Golden Boot winner did put the home side in front in the 24th minute, from the penalty spot after a handball offence against Kim Little.
Four minutes into the second half, a low cross from the left picked out Marina Hegering who finished clinically to double the German side's advantage.
However Arsenal rallied from this point and, shortly after Gemma Davison went close, they were given a lifeline as a free kick taken by Little was turned into her own net by Grings to give the Gunners a precious away goal.
The second leg at Bishop's Stortford on Sunday - Mother's Day - kicks off at 1pm and admission is £3 for adults and £1.50 for Under-16s and concessions. Mothers get in FREE! (if accompanied by their paying children)
