Glasgow City marched proudly into the last 16 of the Women's Champions League with a win away at Valur.

The 3-0 win in Iceland completed a 4-1 aggregate victory.

An early own goal by the home side's Hallbera Gisladottir set the Scottish Premier League Champions on the road to the greatest win in their 18-year history.

And two quick-fire goals midway through the second half, both by Lisa Evans, saw City through.

Manager Eddie Wolecki Black said: "Valur were one of the seeds for the competition so it's a fantastic result for us in the first season we've reached the knock-out stages

"After letting ourselves down a bit in the first leg we stuck to our gameplan today and we were worthy winners.

"We've grown in maturity in Europe and I'm absolutely delighted for the girls that so much hard work has paid off for them."

Glasgow started the game at high tempo and, in the opening five minutes, both Evans and Leanne Ross had shots saved by goalkeeper Meagan McCray.

The positive approach brought its reward when Gisladottir put the ball into her own net to give the visitors a 10th-minute lead.

As City continued to press, Joanne Love and Emma Mitchell had efforts kept out by McCray before Valur produced their first shot on target in the 31st minute.

But, after keeper Claire Johnstone had saved from Holmfridur Magnusdottir, she had to deny Gisladottir and Rakel Logadottir either side of half-time.

The pressure was relieved on the hour, however, when Evans doubled the City lead with a precious second away goal.

And an aggregate victory was clearly in sight when Evans hit the net again just two minutes later.

Glasgow eased their way through the closing stages to earn themselves a mighty tough tie against Potsdam in the next round.

The German side, Champions League winners two years ago and runners-up last term, thumped Iceland's Thor Akureyri 14-2 on aggregate in their Round of 32 tie.

Black added: "Potsdam are going to be very, very difficult but that's for next month - right now we're going to enjoy the moment!"
