Man City vs Copenhagen Highlights: Manchester City can qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League if they beat FC Copenhagen this evening.
Pep Guardiola’s men are currently top of Group G with a perfect record of three wins from three games and if they make it four from four they will book their place in the next round of the competition.
City are in stunning form and come into the game having thrashed Southampton 4-0 on Saturday, but Guardiola will have one eye on the future. (Man City vs Copenhagen Highlights)
His team will play nine games next month (including tonight’s game) and if they qualify for the last-16 of the Champions League tonight, the final two group games will give the players a chance to rest and rotate.
The odds are definitely in their favor as their last performance in the tournament was a one-sided dominance against tonight’s opponents.
Erling Haaland continued his impeccable form with two goals past Julian Alvarez in last Wednesday’s 5-0 defeat at the Etihad, and a struggling Riyad Mahrez also found the back of the net after Davit Khocholawa’s own goal.
