[media-credit name=”Pic: Stephen Sutton” align=”alignleft” width=”320″][/media-credit]City showed their ruthlessness in front of goal as early as four minutes when Leanne Ross was played in and rounded the keeper to score. Three minutes later and Jen Callaghan fired into the bottom left hand corner for her first-ever European goal to make it 2-0 to City.

Eilish McSorley made it 3-0 after the keeper was unable to hold a powerful Danica Dalziel free kick. On 16 minutes Nicola Docherty played in Jennifer Callaghan and although the keeper got down well to block the shot, she couldn’t prevent Leanne Ross getting to the rebound and firing into the back of the net.

McSorley got her second as she powered a header into the bottom corner to make it 5-0 and Dalziel volleyed in number six after a cross from Julie Melrose.

Just before half time, Callaghan got her second of the match as she latched on to a short back pass, rounded the keeper and slotted into the empty net, making it 7-0 to the Scottish Champions at the break.

City made three substitutions at half time, but the charge on the Moldovan goal continued unabated and Katharina Linder got two goals in five minutes finishing well into the bottom corner on both occasions, making it 9-0 after only 54 minutes.

The winner of Thursday’s match between Glasgow City and PK-35 will progress into the knock out stages of the competition. The final Group game takes place on Thursday with a kick off time of 4pm UK time.
