    Manchester City hold a 2-0 lead ahead of the away leg of their Women’s Champions League last-32 tie against Russian side Zvezda 2005 on Wednesday.

    City – making their debut in Europe – have the advantage in the tie after first-leg goals from England’s Jill Scott and Lucy Bronze in Manchester.

    Nick Cushing’s side will bid for a 19th clean sheet of the season in their 24th match in all competitions so far.

    England winger Nikita Parris could be in line to return to the starting side.

    Zvezda finished second in the Russian national league in September, while City clinched an English domestic double this season with their first league title and the Continental Cup.

    An away goal for City on Wednesday would leave Zvezda needing to score at least four times to progress.

    “We never go into a game looking for a draw,” Manchester City and England midfielder Scott told BBC Sport.

    “We’ll definitely go out to try and win (the second leg) and I believe with this squad of players we will do that.

    “Any team that you play is going to be difficult. The standard is always getting better across the board and hopefully we can contribute to that and stay in this competition.”
