Man City’s strongest ever squad can exorcise Champions League demons

After crashing out in the round of 16 last year, the Citizens have brought in three World Cup winners and two European champions
Three years ago, Manchester City were within one goal of overcoming the seemingly unbeatable Lyon and securing a place in the Women’s Champions League final.

The final result was 1-0 over two legs, one year on from a 3-2 aggregate defeat to the same opponent at the same stage.

Twice in two years, City pushed the French giants, who have won the last five European titles, extremely close in the semi-finals.
