An FA WSL showdown between Arsenal and Manchester United headlines a week packed with Women’s Soccer, including a recap of Australia’s W-League and Mexico’s Liga MX Femenil Clausura.

ATA Football set to stream FA WSL matchup between Arsenal and Manchester United

FA Women's Super League fans will be able to stream Arsenal against Manchester United for free on Friday, March 19, at 2:30 p.m. ET. Fourth-place Arsenal will host third-placed Manchester United at Meadow Park in London to conclude Matchday 17.

Manchester United needs a flawless end to its FA WSL 2020/21 campaign to have a chance at winning the title. The Red Devils are six points behind first-place Chelsea and have six games left in the campaign. More importantly, their upcoming game against Arsenal will be their toughest challenge with West Ham, Brighton, Tottenham, Bristol City and Everton left to play in the remainder of the campaign. A win at Meadow Park is a must for Casey Stoney and her women's ambitions.

However, defeating Arsenal will not be an easy challenge by any means. The Gunners are the third most explosive side in attack this season with 48 goals. Dutch striker Vivianne Miedema leads the league in goals with 14 along with four assists, making her the player with the most goal involvements so far this season. Miedema's Dutch compatriot Jill Roord has seven goals and three assists, and Australian forward Caitlin Foord ranks sixth in assists with five and fourth in goals with nine.

Manchester United remained defensively intact in its home league game against Arsenal in November. The Reds won the game 1-0, allowing Arsenal two shots on target and 11 attempts at goal. If the Red Devils manage to replicate their previous performance against Arsenal, then they would be considered a title contender once again this season.

UEFA Women's Champions League quarterfinals confirmed

Division 1 Arkema leaders Paris Saint-Germain booked a spot in the Women's Champions League quarterfinals despite forfeiting its round of 16 second leg against Sparta Prague. 

The Parisians defeated Sparta 5-0 in the first leg at home last week. But they suffered a COVID-19 outbreak that forced them to cancel their league match against rivals Lyon and forfeit the second leg of their round of 16 tie. However, the French side was admitted to the next round because the forfeit only counted as a 3-0 win for the Czech club, adding up to a 5-3 global score.
