City’s Women’s Champions League dream is well and truly alive.
Nick Cushing's Blues produced a superb, battling collective performance to earn a goalless draw in the Champions League semi-final first-leg clash with holders Lyon, maintaining a precious clean sheet to take to France next weekend.
Karen Bardsley and her defensive backline produced a sensational display to preserve the clean sheet, while the home side were unfortunate not to turn the draw into a victory with chances of our own.
It was a result and performance of true grit and determination - a show of a character and desire - and proof of City’s progression since their debut semi-final exploits last year.
