UWCL action: Lyon 0-1 Man City Women
Man City Women’s maiden adventure in the Champions League came to an end with a valiant 3-2 aggregate defeat to reigning champions Lyon. Trailing 3-1 from the first leg at the Academy Stadium, the Blues headed to France with a mountain to climb against the three-time winners but claimed a hard-fought 1-0 triumph at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, thanks to Carli Lloyd’s thunderous strike. Cushing’s side struggled to breach the Lyon defence after that strike though and while their victory proved an impressive accomplishment, it would not be enough to clinch progression.
