GLASGOW City FC have crashed out of Europe, as their excellent run of form in the women’s UEFA Champions League competition came to an end.
The team, who had previously pulled off several remarkable results, were beaten by two-time winners of the competition, Turbine Potsdam, over two legs, ending their European fairytale.
In the first leg in Germany, the Glasgow side were destroyed in a 10-0 defeat by the two-time champions, who outclassed the Scottish club over 90 minutes.
That game saw the Glasgow team concede more goals in one match than they had all season in the Scottish Women’s Premier league.
The second leg wasn’t a much brighter affair and saw the girls lose 7-0 infront of a 600-strong crowd at Petershill Park.
The club should be proud of how far they reached however, especially considering the club’s financial strength in comparison to some of the heavyweight clubs which also competed in the competition.
The side had played their final domestic league game of the season over the weekend between the two games to finish the campaign with 20 wins from 20 games.
The women’s team then followed up their euro exit with an impressive 3-0 victory over Hibernian ladies at Toryglen to win the Henson Scottish Cup and complete the double; winning both the league and the Scottish cup in the same season.
