Glasgow City edged out in first leg
 Women's Football News 7 Oct 2016
 
Mimmi Larsson's goal early in the second half proved enough to separate the sides as Glasgow City lost 1-0 away to Eskilstuna United in the last 32 of the UEFA Women's Champions League at the Tunavallen Stadium in Sweden.
 
It was an evenly fought contest, with chances few and far between for both sides in the first half with City looking to cause problems on the break, with Fiona Brown particularly menacing for City.
 
Six minutes into the second half Eskilstuna went ahead when Ingrid Schjelderup reached the by line and crossed to Larsson who put a powerful header past Gemma Fay in the City nets. The Scottish Champions almost hit back a few minutes later as Brown raced past Glodis Viggosdottir, but her firm shot was saved by Emelie Lundberg in goals for Eskilstuna.
 
Another chance came and went for City on 61 minutes, when great play from the visitors saw Jo Love play Clare Shine in behind the home defence, but the City and Irish forward cut back just evaded the oncoming cavalry and the opportunity was gone.
 
Gemma Fay was called into action with 20 minutes remaining when she saved well from the head of Schjelderup after a home side free kick and again minutes later when she got down brilliantly to deny a shot from Larsson.
 
The game then turned in City's favour with the visitors having a number of efforts at goal, with Hayley Lauder and Haley Rosen in particular going close with rasping drives.
 
In the end, City were unable to get that all important away goal, but with just one goal between the sides it is most definitely all to play for next Thursday when the two sides meet at The Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie.
 
Commenting on the match, City Head Coach Scott Booth said: "We knew it was going to be a tough first leg here in Sweden, but we feel we did our homework well and put into practice a game plan that has kept us in this tie. The players worked extremely hard but we know we need to do the same in the second leg as well as taking a couple of chances to get us through."
 
Tickets are on sale in advance for Glasgow City v Eskilstuna United at glasgowcityfc.co.uk or can be purchased on the night at the turnstile. Kick off is 7.45pm and prices are £10 adult and £5 kids.
