City through to knockout phase
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 16 Aug 2018
 
UEFA Women's Champions League - City through to knockout phase - 16 Aug 2018 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City are in the knockout stages of the UEFA Women's Champions League once again after they defeated Gornik Leczna in their final group match.
 
A first half header from Joanne Love put City in the driving seat, but it was a nervous second half as City pushed for that all-important second goal to ensure they finished as group winners and progressed to the last 32 of the competition. Lara Ivanuša hit the post and Abbi Grant went close, before Sam Kerr slotted home with four minutes of normal time remaining to send the crowd into celebration.
 
The draw for the last 32 will take place at UEFA HQ in Nyon on Friday. The Round of 32 will take place on 12/13 and 26/27 September. City, as a seeded team, will be away for the first leg and home for the second.
 
Cardiff Met Women were no longer able to qualify from their group but aimed to return home on a winning note when they took on Birkirkara in their final match.
 
In the end, the Archers were left a little frustrated as they twice took the lead during the first half but were pegged back on each occasion by their Maltese opponents for a 2-2 draw. Erin Murray's 11th minute opener was cancelled out before the half hour by Raina Giusti and although Stephanite Turner restored Met's advantage, Ylenia Carabott ensured a share of the spoils for her side when she equalised on the stroke of half time.
 
Linfield, likewise, looked to finish off their games with a victory following two narrow defeats but they once again ended up on the wrong side of a close game, going down 3-2 to Wexford Youths following a dramatic finish to the game. An own goal from the unfortunate Lauren Perry gave Wexford an early lead which was doubled by Rianna Jarrett, but Megan Bell renewed hopes for Linfield when she pulled one back just before the interval. There was no more scoring until injury time, when substitute Clare Timoney looked to have earned Linfield a point when she equalised but there was a sting in the tail for them just two minutes afterwards as Kylie Murphy grabbed a late winner for Wexford.
