Umeå went into the tournament as favourites. The club is Europe’s only full-time professional team, but part-timers Arsenal managed to hold them at bay. The London club won a 1-0 victory last Saturday in the first leg of the final.
Umeå came close to saving the match at times, with Ramona Bachman hitting the post and a shot by Marta bouncing a free kick off the bar. But Arsenal’s strong defence led them to a win on aggregate.
