Match Highlights

Classic Highlights: Lugano 1-7 City

An eight-goal thriller got City's 2019/20 UEFA Women's Champions League campaign off to a dream start...

Gareth Taylor's side will begin next season's European adventure with a first-ever encounter against WFC Tomiris-Turan on Thursday 18 August.

Should we prevail against the Kazakhstani outfit, who are taking part in their maiden Champions League campaign, then a Round One final clash against the victors of Real Madrid v SK Sturm Graz awaits.


Our clash with the Kazakhstan Women's Championship runners-up represents the first time we have faced a debutant in the competition since locking horns with Lugano three years ago.

On that occasion, a brace apiece from Caroline Weir and Pauline Bremer, plus further strikes from Georgia Stanway, Aoife Mannion and Janine Beckie saw City come away from our Round of 32 first leg with a 7-1 win.

It remains our largest winning margin in the Champions League, with a 4-0 triumph in the second leg at the Academy Stadium securing our passage to the Round of 16.
