City v Fiorentina: Kick-off times changed
The kick-off times of City's UEFA Champions League Round of 16 home tie with Fiorentina have been changed.

The first leg will now take place at 16:45 (UK time) at the Academy Stadium - 15 minutes earlier than previously scheduled - on Wednesday 3 March.

Meanwhile, the trip to Italy will start at 13:00 (UK time, 14:00 CET) on Thursday 11 March - half an hour earlier.


The pair have never met before in professional competition.

Semi-finalists in 2017 and 2018, City reached the last 16 stage with convincing victories over Göteborg FC in the Round of 32.

Georgia Stanway's 50th goal and a Sam Mewis header on her Champions League debut secured a hard-fought away win, and City cruised to a 3-0 home triumph in the second leg, thanks to a Lauren Hemp wonderstrike and Stanway brace.
