Manchester City lost 2-1 over two legs against Real Madrid in qualifying for last season's Champions League

Manchester City could meet Real Madrid in their quest to qualify for the Champions League group stage.

Gareth Taylor's side, who finished third in the Women's Super League last season, enter the competition in round one of qualifying.

They will play Kazakhstan club Tomiris Turan in Group Four of the on 18 August.

If victorious, City will face either Madrid or Austrian club Sturm Graz to progress into the round two section.

Madrid ended City's Champions League qualification last season, winning 2-1 on aggregate.

The draw for the 2022-23 round one stage qualification took place in Nyon, Switzerland, on Friday.

The round one league path involves 16 teams, that are placed into groups of four, from sides who finished third in Europe's six highest-ranked associations and the runners up of the next ten highest-ranked associations.

    Rangers and Glasgow learn Champions League opponents

Glasgow City enter the competition as runners up of the Scottish Women's Premier League.

If they can get past Roma in the semi-final of Group One, Paris or Servette will stand in Glasgow's way of reaching round two.

Last season's Champions League winners Lyon are automatically entered into the competition alongside the winners of England, France and Germany's top leagues.

Since Lyon are also the French champions, the winners of the league in Spain - the fourth-ranked association - are also entered into the group stage.

This means last season's Champions League runners-up Barcelona join Lyon, Wolfsburg and Chelsea as clubs who have already qualified.

The other route to the tournament's group stage is the champions path where the champions of the remaining associations start their European campaigns.

Swansea and Rangers have both been drawn in Group Two of the champions path and will face each other if both sides win their matches against PAOK and Ferencvaros respectively.

All matches will take place at the same location, which has yet to be announced, with semi-final games scheduled for 18 August and the finals arranged for 21 August.
