Glasgow City were outclassed by one of the world's greatest football sides, German Champions FFC Turbine Potsdam, who ran out 10-0 winners in the first leg of their UEFA Women's Champions League last sixteen tie.
A goal within the first minute by Genoveva Anonma showed Potsdam's intent and indeed their outstanding clinical finishing, when she volleyed home into the top corner. Further first half goals from Bianca Schmidt and Anja Mittag gave Potsdam a 3-0 half time lead.
City had held out well during the latter stages of the first half but were blown away after the break as Potsdam powered home another seven goals.
Japanese World Cup winner Yuki Nagasato netted twice and Mittag bagged a second half double to give the German international her hat-trick. Another from Anonman, plus a strike from Dutch international Chantal de Ridder, was followed by an own goal by unlucky City defender Amy McDonald to complete the scoring.
Although overwhelmed for much of the match, Lisa Evans impressed up front for City with her tireless running and they could have snatched a late goal but substitute Katharina Lindner's shot was saved.
City now need to pick themselves up for their League match against Hamilton Accies on Sunday before they face Potsdam at home next Thursday in the second leg at Petershill and they will be determined to get a better result in front of the expected home support for the 6.05pm kick off.
