Arsenal Women 4-0 Hoffenheim Ladies: Tobin Heath scores as Arsenal win in Champions League

Last update on. From the section Women's Football
Tobin Heath joined Arsenal in the summer from Manchester United.

Tobin Heath scored her Arsenal debut goal as the Women's Super League champions beat Hoffenheim at the Champions League.

Midway through the first period, the home team took the lead when Kim Little scored a penalty.

Heath, a summer signing, made it 2-0 at half-time with a close-range knockdown.

Vivianne Miedema threw in a third, before Leah Williamson stepped in with a fourth.

Victory means Arsenal are now second in Group C, with three points. They trail leaders Barcelona, who have six.

Jonas Eidevall's team has enjoyed a great start to the season, with five wins in the Women's Super League. However, their European campaign started badly when they were defeated 4-1 by Barcelona.

They were able to overcome a slow start and dominate Champions League newcomers Hoffenheim.

Little scored her fifth goal of this season, scoring from the penalty spot after Beth Mead was fouled in the box.

Arsenal were causing problems for their German counterparts with their high press. They added another just before the break when Heath (who joined on a summer transfer having previously played for Manchester United) scored after Miedema had lobbed the ball in her direction.

After Jordan Nobbs' brilliant strike was blocked by Martina Tufekovic, the Dutch forward Miedema scored.

Manuela Zinsberger, Arsenal's goalkeeper, made sure her side held a clean sheet. She saved Katharina Naschenweng from a deflected shot late on. Williamson scored a header in the final minutes to seal a dominating win.
