    Soccer News: Barcelona take lead in front of record crowds, Arsenal draw vital Champions League draw against Juvento

    Barcelona seized control of the Women’s Champions League Group D by beating Bayern Munich 3-0 in front of 46,967 fans – a new group stage record.

    Goals by Geise, Aitana Bonmati and Claudia Pina in the second half helped Jonathan Giraldez’s team maintain a flawless finish in Thursday’s tournament and also break Bayern’s record.

    Fans at the Camp Nou, who had surpassed the previous group stage record of 18,341 by a wide margin, had to remain patient for the first leg, but the Blaugrana rated their victory well after Brazil’s Geise broke the deadlock.

    As a result, Barça were three points clear of their rivals and also maintained their six-point lead over Benfica, who beat Rosengard 1–0 thanks to a goal from Clos Lacasset.

    Meanwhile, Arsenal maintained a narrow lead in Group C with a 1-1 draw against Juventus, who are two points behind the Gunners after losing the lead in the second half.

    Lynette Beerenstein put the hosts ahead shortly after the break, but nine minutes later her Dutch compatriot Vivianne Midema nodded her head from a corner and kept the visitors in the lead.

    Defending champions Lyon are also in contention for a place in the quarter-finals after a 3-0 win over Zurich, which brought them within one point of second-placed Juventus.

    Signe Bruun added two goals after Melvin Malar’s early header helped the eight-time champions to their first Champions League win of the season.
