Manchester City celebrate scoring at Linkoping
Manchester City have made the semi-finals in each of their two Women's Champions League campaigns

Manchester City eased into the semi-finals of the Women's Champions League after beating Swedish side Linkoping 5-3 to go through 7-3 on aggregate.

City led 4-0 at half time thanks to an early Jane Ross goal, two from Georgia Stanway and a Jen Beattie header.

Marija Banusic scored two early in the second half, but Izzy Christiansen's goal eased any City nerves before Tove Almqvist's late third for Linkoping.

It is the second successive season that City have made the last four.

They will face Lyon - who beat City at the same stage last year - after they won 1-0 in Barcelona to go through 3-1 on aggregate.

Chelsea will face German side Wolfsburg in the semi-finals after beating French side Montpellier 3-1 for a 5-1 aggregate win - keeping alive the possibility of an all-English final.

Progression for both English clubs ensured there will be two British representatives in the semi-finals for the first time.
