WUCL: Man City Women Beat St Polten 3-0 (6-0 agg)

Manchester City joined Chelsea in the last 16 of the Women's UEFA Champions League by easing to a 6-0 aggregate win over Austrian side St Polten.
Already leading 3-0 from the first leg, City wasted a glorious early chance to extend their lead when Jane Ross had a penalty saved by Jasmin Boisits.

Nikita Parris finally bundled City in front, and Jill Scott fired in from 18 yards just before half-time.

Melissa Lawley drove in a late third to underline City's dominance.

After Women's Super League One rivals Chelsea overcame Bayern Munich on away goals on Wednesday, City's progression means there are two English sides in the last 16 for the first time since 2013-14.

The draw for the last 16 will be held in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday, 16 October.

City and Chelsea cannot be drawn against each other.
