Arsenal are through to the quarter-finals of the Women’s Champions League despite defeat to holders Lyon in their penultimate group match.
The Gunners sit top of Group C with a game remaining, though it was not a celebratory evening at the Emirates.
A quiet first half ended badly for Arsenal when Frida Maanum’s own goal gave Lyon the lead, moments before Vivianne Miedema went off injured.
Netherlands international Miedema was in tears as she left the pitch.
It looked like a serious injury for the striker, who was quickly surrounded by team-mates when she fell awkwardly off the ball, before receiving medical attention.
The 26-year-old then had her leg heavily strapped and was taken off on a stretcher.
