The Opposition:

Servette missed out on defending their Swiss Super League title last season in the cruellest way after losing the Play Off Final on penalties to FC Zurich despite finishing top of the regular season standings.

The Swiss side had two players that were involved at this summer’s UEFA Women’s European Championships with Ines Pereira being selected by Portugal and Sandy Maendly featuring for Switzerland before her retirement from football.

There will be a familiar face for City fans to recognise in the Servette squad with Agata Filipa featuring for the Swiss side after moving to Geneva in the summer.

Servette open their league season next weekend against Yverdon.

Previous Meetings:

Servette and Glasgow City met in last season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League over two legs. The first leg in Geneva saw the sides share the spoils with Clare Shine’s excellent volley cancelling out Jade Boho’s early strike.

The second leg at Broadwood Stadium saw Priscila Chinchilla give City an early lead before an indirect free kick and a header from Sandy Maendly booked Servette a place in the Group Stage.

Form Guide:

Servette saw their chances of reaching the Group Stage for the second successive season end with a 3-0 defeat to French side Paris FC.

City, in the later game, went in level with Serie A side AS Roma but two goals in the second half meant it was the Italians that progressed to the Round 1 Final later on Sunday.
