Copenhagen vs Man City Pick and Prediction
|Man City -1.5
It is very challenging to overlook the visiting team when making a Copenhagen vs Man City prediction this week. The reigning European champions have been in dominant domestic form since returning from the Club World Cup, and they have netted at least three goals in all Champions League fixtures this term.
Meanwhile, Erling Haaland marked his return to the starting line-up by netting twice against Everton on Saturday, meaning that the Copenhagen defense could face an almighty challenge to avoid a wide-margin defeat.

Copenhagen vs Manchester City Analysis
It has been an excellent display by Copenhagen already in the Champions League this season, as they exceeded all expectations to finish second in the UCL standings in Group A. The Danish side were outsiders to progress after being drawn alongside Man United.
However, the Copenhagen scores were impressive throughout the group stage campaign, which included home wins against Man United and Galatasaray. But, the UCL team stats show that their defensive record will need to improve if they are to progress further in the competition.
Copenhagen will be playing in the knockout stage for just the second time in their history. Their previous appearance in this stage came in 2010-11, but they were eliminated by Premier League side Chelsea.
Danish clubs have a poor overall record against reigning European champions, having lost all three of their previous clashes.
Manchester City Preview
Manchester City will be among the prominent UCL computer picks when it comes to the most likely winner of the competition this term. The reigning champions were faultless in the group stage after winning all six of their matches.
The UCL player stats also show that their attacking players were in excellent form after City netted three goals in each of their six matches in the opening round of the competition.
City are also on a record winning sequence in the Champions League at present after winning each of their last eight in the competition. That is the longest winning run by any English side in UCL history.
Their chances increases this week following improvement on the UCL injuries front, with Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland returning to action in the last month.
Copenhagen vs Manchester City Head to Head
This will be a fifth meeting between City and Copenhagen across all competitions. The Danish side are yet to win in four previous showdowns, with each of their two home matches over that period ending in draws. However, Copenhagen have lost on their last two visits to Man City.
