Manchester City Women reach Champions League quarters

Manchester City advanced into the Women's Champions League quarter-finals as they beat LSK Kvinner 2-1 at the Academy Stadium. The triumph was marred by a serious-looking injury sustained by Megan Campbell which led to the match being stopped for several minutes early in the second half.
City's 5-0 first-leg victory in Norway a week earlier meant the last-16 tie seemed as good as over before this game started, but LSK showed they were still prepared to fight on Thursday as Marte Berget's 17th-minute strike put them 1-0 up on the night.

That was a rare attacking moment for the visitors in a first half that saw City fail to take a host of chances, with visiting goalkeeper Cecilie Fiskerstrand denying Jill Scott, Steph Houghton and Demi Stokes. Izzy Christiansen then scored in the opening minute of the second half, sweeping a shot in after being set up by Parris. Parris subsequently notched the hosts' second of the night in the 73rd minute with a strike teed up by Melissa Lawley, who had come on for Campbell.
