The Opposition:

The Italian side won their first major honour when they won the Coppa Italia in 2020-21 after a penalty shoot out victory over AC Milan and followed up with their best finish in the league last season.

Roma had five players that were selected for the UEFA Women’s European Championships this summer in their squad.

Previous Meetings:

Glasgow City have never faced Italian opposition before in the club’s history. It is also the first ever meeting in the UEFA Women’s Champions League between a Scottish and Italian side.

Form Guide:

AS Roma are yet to start their domestic season in Italy but ended the 2021-22 Serie A season strongly as they surged away from AC Milan and Sassuolo however they missed out on defending their Coppa Italia title as they were beaten 2-1 by Juventus in the Final.

City made it two wins from two on Sunday thanks to a last minute winner from Jenna Clark when she headed home Mairead Fulton’s corner. The opening game at Petershill Park had seen City beat Spartans 7-0.
