FC Copenhagen vs Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City make the trip to Copenhagen on Tuesday knowing that a victory would see them secure their spot in the knocout round of the Champions League with two matches to go.

Pep Guardiola’s side are currently top of Group G, boasting nine points from their opening three matches, while the hosts are bottom, picking up just one point in the section so far.

Copenhagen were seen off by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last week, with the Citizens scoring three time in the first half before striking twice more after the interval to run claim a 5-0 victory.

The five-goal defeat to Manchester City has left the Danish outfit bottom of Group G on one point, but they are level on points with third-placed Sevill, so a spot in the Europa League is certainly achievable, while they can also still mathematically finish in the top two at this stage.

Jacob Neestrup’s side enter the contest off the back of a 1-1 draw with Nordsjaelland in the league on Saturday, which has left them down in sixth place, boasting 16 points from 12 games.

Meanwhile, Manchester City made it six straight wins across all competitions on Saturday by beating Southampton 4-0 in the Premier League, which temporarily moved them to the top of the table.

This will represent the Citizens’ first away game in any competition since the 3-0 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the league in the middle of September, having won 6-3, 5-0 and 4-0 in their last three matches, all at home.

Manchester City defeated Sevilla 4-0 in their group opener before claiming a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund on September 14, and a victory over Copenhagen left them in a commanding spot in the group ahead of their final two group matches against Dortmund and Sevilla.

FC Copenhagen news

FC Copenhagen will again be without Zeca and Akinkunmi for this contest due to injury, but the hosts did not pick up any fresh concerns in the league action at the weekend.

Victor Kristiansen and Kevin Diks should both return to the back four, but Mamoudou Karamoko will need to pass a late fitness test.

Manchester City news

Manchester City will be without Kalvin Phillips and Kyle Walker due to injury, while John Stones is also unlikely to be risked due to a hamstring issue.

Jack Grealish, Ilkay Gundogan and Sergio Gomez could potentially come into the side, while Erling Braut Haaland should start once again for the Citizens.

Prediction and Odds

It could be very difficult to back against Manchester City at the moment due to their immense quality, and we can only expect one result on Tuesday.

Copenhagen lost in the reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium last week and will likely have to accept another defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side on home turf.

Odds: 2.34 2.10 1.72
