Man City Women reach the Champions League semi-finals!
Manchester City Women became the first English team to reach the Champions League semi-finals since 2014 by beating Fortuna Hjorring
Man City Women, the Women’s Super League champions, beat the Danish side 1-0 in the first leg and doubled that lead through Lucy Bronze’s looping header.
Caroline Rask wasted Fortuna’s best chance, while World Player of the Year Carli Lloyd fired just wide for the Blues.
Reaching the semi-finals for the first time in their history, City will now face Lyon in the last four.
