During yesterday's last-32 draw in Nyon, the Scottish champions were paired with Standard Liege, while Arsenal face a daunting trip to play SSHVSM Kairat in Kazakhstan. The matches are to be played next month and should the British clubs progress, they could then meet for the first time in this competition.
Arsenal's tie against Kairat, while a logistical nightmare, should be a formality for the London club, who reached the semi-finals last term. City's task is more formidable but they can take succour from having defeated FC Twente in the Netherlands to qualify for the last 32. The Dutch side pipped Standard Liege for the inaugural BeNe League title earlier this year.
"There's no doubt it's going to be tough to reach the last 16 but we are the seeded side and after beating Twente there's no reason why we can't do it," said Corsie. "If we did, a last-16 tie against Arsenal would be huge for the profile of women's football in Scotland and England."
While Jenny Beattie recently left the London club for Montpellier, Arsenal still boast three Scotland internationalists in Kim Little, Emma Mitchell and Caroline Weir, while manager Shelley Kerr was coach of the Scotland under-19 side until recently.
"I haven't heard anything from Kim yet - we're both waiting to see who's going to make the first move," Corsie joked of her Scotland team-mate. "I don't think Arsenal will be looking forward to the trip to Kazakhstan."
