    Arsenal have reached the Women's Uefa Cup quarter-finals for the seventh time in seven attempts.
    The Gunners progressed by finishing runners-up in their second-round tournament in France despite losing 3-0 to Olympique Lyonnais on Tuesday night.
    The defeat was the first of the season for Vic Akers' side.
    Arsenal will face Swedish champions Umea, the team they beat to win the Euro title in 2007, over two legs in their quarter-final in November.
    Akers said: "It was disappointing to lose against Lyon, but the important thing was to get into the last eight again and we've done that.
    "The tie against Umea will be tough and they'll be out for revenge for the 2007 final, but we toughed it out on that occasion and we'll aim to do the same next month."
