Manchester City joined Chelsea in the last 16 of the Women’s Champions League following a 3-0 win over St Pölten.

Goals from Nikita Parris, Jill Scott and Melissa Lawley secured a 6-0 aggregate victory over the Austrian side in Manchester.

Jane Ross had an early penalty saved after the Scotland striker had been brought down in the area. But a dominant opening spell from the hosts was rewarded when Parris stabbed home a rebound after 34 minutes.

Scott curled in a superb second from the edge of the penalty area just before the interval, and Lawley tucked in the third off a post five minutes from full-time.

The draw for the last 16 will take place on Monday.
