SKIPPER Kim Little says Arsenal want to “make the most” of the time they have left in the Champions League.

The Gunners play their first competitive game in almost six months tomorrow (Saturday) when they take on Paris Saint-Germain Feminines in the quarter-finals of the competition.

But the one-legged tie at Real Sociedad’s Anoeta Stadium in Spain could be the north Londoners’ last overseas adventure for a while after they failed to qualify for Europe next season.

“Of course it means a lot and it’s the biggest competition in club football,” said Little.

“We’re grateful to be a part of it. We’re going to give everything we can and hopefully progress through the tournament into the final. We’re obviously disappointed to not be there next season.

“We’re making the most of the time we’re in this competition. It doesn’t come around too often in your career, to play these kinds of games, and especially with how competitive the league is in England now, there are several teams that have the opportunity to push for those top two spots.”
