The Gunners led 3-0 after the home leg. Miedema scored the opening goal.

She scored two more close-range goals, putting her in a club century.

Arsenal will join WSL champions Chelsea at the group stage. The draw is on 13 September.

This means that Jonas Eidevall's Gunners have now won five of five matches in competition. His side beat Chelsea, the reigning champions, in the WSL opener.

Thursday's victory was due in large part to Miedema. She was a constant threat to the Slavia defense and displayed the skillful finishing that made her one of the best strikers in the game.

These three goals were all scored in 12 seconds to give Gunners' goalkeeper, Emma Gunners, her 100th century of goals in just 110 appearances.
