Predictably, Arsenal were too big for Zurich on Wednesday night. The guests from London did not give up until the score was 9-1 and reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League as group winners.
In the lead role, the Norwegian Frida Mannum, this time with positive marks.
In the previous Champions League match, she ended up scoring an own goal in the 0-1 loss against Lyon.
In Switzerland on Wednesday, she first directed a free kick directly onto the crossbar, before scoring her second goal later, at 2-0, after a brilliant pass and a safe finish.
Maanum capped off an impressive first half with a serve by Stina Plakstenius, who secured a 4-0 lead before half-time.
And the image of the national team continued the big game after the end of the first half. Only five minutes were played in the second half when Ma’noum found space outside the Zurich area.
Arsenal’s No. 12 chipped the ball into the nearest corner in superb fashion, so it was 5-0 and the hat-trick was real. Just over a quarter of an hour before the end, Maenum was substituted.
The match finished 9-1 to Arsenal, who skipped Lyon’s Ada Hegerberg from the set. The French champions played 0-0 against Juventus on Wednesday. Still injured, Hegerberg was not in the squad.
