Glasgow City wants to win the Champions League play-off with Servette without extra time, says goalkeeper Lee Alexander.

The teams separated 1: 1 in the first leg last week, with a place in the group stage being the price for the eventual winner.

Defending champions City warmed up for the second leg with a 6-0 opening SWPL1 win over Motherwell on Sunday.

“We want to make sure we try to win over 90 minutes,” said Alexander, who has signed a new deal until 2024.

“We know we can perform much better [than the first leg]. We can be in better possession of the ball. We know they have threats, but I don’t think we really showed what we can do. “

Team news

Hayley Lauder is City’s only absentee due to injury and the Scottish striker is nearing a return.

Interim head coach Grant Scott has made changes in recent games to deal with “normal stress at the beginning of the season”.

“We change squads quite often at the moment,” he said. “Everyone in the group looks like they’re playing.

What did we learn about Servette?

Jade Boho Sayo gave Servette the lead in Switzerland early in the second half but Clare Shine equalized Glasgow.

And Scott said, “We felt we were a little undercut in the first half. Thanks to Servette, they prevented us from playing our normal game of building through the back.”

“Your game plan, preventing us from playing the way we’d like it, probably worked better that night than we did for us. We didn’t really expect it. They hadn’t done that to any opponent in their previous games.” .

“They were possibly a little faster and physically stronger than I thought they would. Their goal came from a standard game and most of their threats came from standard games.”
