Manchester City will be without defender John Stones when they travel to Danish capital for their Champions League reverse fixture after defeating them 5 nil a week ago.
Pep Guardiola’s men are second in the English Premier League but are still unbeaten in all competitions and them facing the same side they defeated ruthlessly should just be a stroll in the park. Pep in his pre-match conference hinted that Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland could be rested due to fatigue. Haaland has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season and seems to be the final piece of the puzzle for Manchester City in their quest to lift their maiden Champions League title.
Copenhagen are currently winless in the Champions League and sit at the bottom of the group. They are currently 7th in the Danish Superliga with 5 wins in 12 games. Even with a heavily rotated City side, it will be no mean feat to stop the Cityzens tonight and they can only hope to keep the scoreline respectable in front of their home fans.
Jacob Neestrup, coach of FC Copenhagen also admitted tonight’s game will be difficult but hopes that his players utilize the few opportunities they might have in front of goal.
With an injury-ravaged Copenhagen side, the blue calvary will most likely march on tonight.
