A tale of two Cities...
 Women's Football Club News - 6 Oct 2017
 
Manchester City have one foot in the last sixteen of the UEFA Women's Champions League following a 3-0 victory over St Polten in the first leg of their tie in Austria.
 
After a lively start by the home side, City broke the deadlock through an unlikely source, full back Demi Stokes who raced onto Izzy Christiansen's through ball before smashing past Jasmin Boisits and in off the crossbar. It was a superb finish and just her third goal in Sky Blue.
With the lead, the visitors never really looked like relinquishing it. Georgia Stanway almost doubled the lead - only to drive straight at Boisits at the near post - while Nikita Parris was unfortunate to see a header fly wide.
 
City extended their lead just after the half hour mark as skipper Steph Houghton stepped up to unleash a trademark free kick into the bottom corner - another goal of real quality. Four minutes later, Parris handed the Blues an unassailable lead at the break, heading home Stokes' delivery for her first goal of the season.
St Polten should have reduced the deficit before half time but Jennifer Klein headed wide, whilst Ellie Roebuck denied Fanni Vago and Viktoria Pinther after the restart, as the home side rallied.
Jasmin Eder then struck the bar and Roebuck was called into action again to tip over. At the other end, Parris went in search of her second of the game with a mazy run past several Polten defenders. Boisits was equal to the resulting shot though.
 
Houghton thought she had netted her second of the game with two minutes of normal time remaining, heading in off the crossbar - but the lineswoman's flag was raised.
 
It was not such good news though for Glasgow City as they went down 3-0 to BIIK-Kazygurt in Kazakhstan. The first half was goalless but after the break, Begaim Kirgizbaeva opened the scoring for the home side and they went on to add further goals through Kaelyn Korte and Gulnara Gabelia.
 
Elsewhere, Toni Duggan was on the scoresheet as Barcelona won 4-0 away to Avaldsnes, Lucy Bronze meanwhile helped Olympique Lyonnais to a 5-0 victory in Medyk Konin. Anita Asante played for FC Rosengard in their 1-0 successs at Olimpia Cluj and Ellie Brazil was on the bench as Fiorentina beat Fortuna Hjorring 2-1.
