Carli Lloyd marked her Champions League debut with a goal as Man City Women handed themselves the advantage with a 1-0 win in their quarter-final first leg tie against Fortuna Hjorring.
The two-time FIFA World Player of the Year opened the scoring in a dominant display for the Blues at the Bredband Nord Arena.
Direct, hungry and tireless in and out of possession, the visitors restricted their hosts to mere half-chances and could have extended their aggregate lead.
The American opened her City account on 35 minutes, powering a bullet header past the Fortuna ‘keeper from Ross’ delivery, after Jill Scott had stolen possession in a dangerous area.
Will one goal be enough to progress? The Blues host Fortuna at the Academy Stadium on Thursday 30 March (7pm) and tickets are available.
