Glasgow City defeated Moldovan Champions Noroc Nimoreni 11-0 in their second match in Group Eight of the UEFA Women's Champions League to set up a winner-takes-all showdown against Finland's finest, PK-35 Vantaa, who also won their second match, 3-1 over WFC Osijek.
City showed their ruthlessness in front of goal as early as four minutes when Leanne Ross was played in and rounded the keeper to score. Three minutes later and Jen Callaghan fired into the bottom left hand corner for her first ever European goal to make it 2-0 to City.
Eilish McSorley made it three after the keeper was unable to hold a powerful Danica Dalziel free kick and on 16 minutes Nicola Docherty played in Jennifer Callaghan and although the keeper got down well to the shot, she couldn't prevent Leanne Ross getting to the rebound and firing into the back of the net.
McSorley got her second as she powered a header into the bottom corner and Dalziel volleyed in number six after a cross from Julie Melrose. Just before half time, Callaghan got her second of the match as she latched on to a short back pass, rounded the keeper and slotted into the empty net, making it 7-0 to the Scottish Champions at the break.
City made three substitutions at half time but the charge on the Moldovan goal continued and Katharina Lindner added two goals in five minutes, finishing well into the bottom corner on both occasions.
Ashley McDonald marked her European debut with a goal on 79 minutes, heading home a Lindner cross to just before full time Lindner completed her hat-trick, beating the offside trap to race into the box and slot past the diving keeper, to make the final score 11-0.
Glasgow City: Lee Alexander, Julie Melrose, Jennifer Callaghan, Danielle Pagliarulo, Eilish McSorley, Danica Dalziel (sub Leanne Crichton 45mins), Leanne Ross (sub Emma Mitchell 45mins), Ashley McDonald, Katharina Lindner, Ciara Barnes, Nicola Docherty (sub Jane Ross 45mins). Subs not used: Claire Johnstone, Joanne Love, Christie Murray.
