Eidvall hails Arsenal's 'incredible achievement' of beating Bayern

Arsenal's chances of success this season were previously questioned after the team was hit by a spate of injuries.

Arsenal have had an impressive run lately, despite previous doubts about their potential this season due to injuries. They secured a spot in the Women's Champions League semi-finals by beating Bayern Munich in the second leg after trailing in the first leg. This marks their first appearance in the semi-finals in 10 years.

Additionally, the Gunners recently ended a four-year trophy drought by defeating Chelsea in the League Cup final on March 5th.

"It's been a long-term goal of mine to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League,"

said manager Jonas Eidevall.

"It's an incredible achievement that we are so proud of.

"I told the players before the game that our performance in the League Cup final told me we had potential [to win] when we get things perfect. It doesn't mean it's easy and we can do every time, but if we have that potential wouldn't it be incredible and beautiful to bring that to this competition too?"

After winning against Tottenham in the north London derby over the weekend,


's performance in the game against Bayern Munich was intense and impressive, resulting in two well-executed goals and securing their place in the Women's Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 10 years.

With only a three-point difference to WSL leaders Manchester United and seven games left to play, winning three trophies is still possible for Arsenal.

"Process is really important and results create belief,"

said Eidevall.

"It means the things you are doing, you are more inclined to do again when you win football matches from it.

"This month has given us [the results] and hopefully that creates a lot of belief as well."

The win against Bayern Munich was a memorable moment for Eidevall and his team as they played in front of a record crowd of over 20,000 fans, which was the largest for a women's European game ever played in England. Eidevall also stated that it was their best game played at the bigger stadium since he joined the club.

"It was special when I came here and we beat Chelsea 3-2 in my first game but that was limited time we had worked here,"

said Eidevall.

"This feels like 20 months' combination of work going into a double header against one of the best teams in Europe at the moment. I'm very proud of that."
