After a week of international break, Women’s League Football is back!

Women’s Super League is back, and it’s starting with style, with Arsenal (2nd) going ahead Reading FC (5th), looking forward to continuing its winning strike; while Reading will try to steal the 3 points and go up the ladder for a top 3 in the league. Still a long way, but it could happen.


It looks like Arsenal is the clear favorite to win this game: They’re 30 points in the league (2nd place), and only 1 point behind front-runners Manchester City, who have 1 match more than the Gunners.

From 12 games played, 10 won and 2 lost. An impressive record for the club managed by Australian Joe Montemurro.


Also, with Daniëlle van de Donk as one of the sensations of the league on their side, Arsenal Women are much confident that they won’t have problems to take the 3 points this Sunday.

But on the other side, Reading Women seems to have strengthened their side, to fight back against the Gunners.

Reading Women have recently signed Iceland international Rakel Honnudottir from Swedish side IF Limhamn Bunkeflo 07.


The 30-year-old striker represented her country at the Women’s European Championships in 2009 and 2013.

Reading manager Kelly Chambers said: “Rakel has great attributes including her power, strength and a very good eye for goal with a variety of finishes.”

Now, it seems Honnudottir could be available and make her debut for the home Women’s Super League game against second-placed Arsenal on Sunday.


We’ll need to wait until tomorrow, Sunday 26th January, and see which side will be the winner; and if one of these two players will have a big impact on the result of the match.
