Glasgow City midfielder Leanne Crichton says Champions League quarter-final ‘sounds almost impossible'

Glasgow City midfielder Leanne Crichton has said playing in the club’s Champions League quarter-final next month ‘sounds almost impossible’.

City are scheduled to face Vfl Wolfsburg in the knock-out round in Spain this August. The club only returned to training this weekend.

She told BBC Sport: "It's really important that we try to fulfil that fixture. There have been multiple conversations how we do that. 

“I think we've to arrive the day before the game, play, hope you can pull off an incredible result, then you get to stay on a bit longer. It all sounds impossible but I'm sure it will happen.”

If City beat Wolfsburg they will face either Atletico Madrid or Barcelona in the semi-final just four days later.

The knock-out rounds, usually played over two legs, are being played in one leg so the tournament can be finished amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Other teams heading to Spain next month are Arsenal, Lyon, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

The quarters, semis and final will take place from August 21-30.
