British trio in good positions
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 2 Sep 2021
 
All three British teams will go into the second legs of their respective UEFA Women's Champions League ties in a strong position as they seek a place in the group stages of the revamped competition.
 
Arsenal were first in action on Tuesday as they played host to Slavia Prague in their first leg and ran out convincing 3-0 winners in new manager Jonas Eidevall's first competitive home match in front of a crowd at Meadow Park. The Gunners got off to a great start with new signing Nikita Parris heading in a Steph Catley cross after just two minutes and Kim Little quickly made it two, slotting home from the penalty spot after Caitlin Foord had been fouled in the area. The final goal came in the second half, Beth Mead clipping a pass for Vivianne Miedema to run through and score her 96th goal for the club.
 
The second leg of this tie will be played at the Eden Stadium next Thursday (5.30pm BST kick off).
 
Manchester City meanwhile had to play away to Real Madrid in their first leg and an away goal has given them a slender advantage as the teams finished level at 1-1. Just like Arsenal, City handed three debuts to new summer arrivals but after a bright start, came under pressure at times from a lively Real side at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano and the home side squandered a great chance to take the lead just before half time when Esther Gonzalez missed from the penalty spot. City were quick out of the blocks after the break and a scramble in the area ended with Caroline Weir drilling in a low shot to give them the lead. Esther headed against the bar at the other end a minute later and City needed to defend stoutly to stay in front, but Jill Scott was unlucky not to double their lead when her goal was ruled out for a foul. Just as it seemed that the Cityzens had weathered the second half storm, Kenti Robles fired home an injury time equaliser to bring Real back on level terms, but City still having matters in their hands when the teams meet again at the Academy Stadium next Wednesday.
 
Glasgow City had to travel to take on Swiss champions Servette and are in a similar position, having also drawn 1-1. The home side inflicted early pressure without making a breakthrough and after the first half ended goalless, Servette took the lead five minutes after the restart when Jade Boho beat Lee Alexander with a looping header following a free kick. City responded well to going behind, with Janine van Wyk forcing an excellent save from Ines Pereira shortly afterwards, however the Servette goalkeeper had no answer when Claire Walsh floated a pass over the home defence for the onrunning Clare Shine to sweetly strike a first time volley from the edge of the area and inside the far post for a precious away goal. The second leg will be at the Broadwood Stadium next Wednesday (3.15pm).
