Fresh up from demolishing their Manchester counterparts 6-3, Manchester City will host FC Copenhagen at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City versus FC Copenhagen
Time: 8.00 pm.
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester.
Manchester City is unbeaten in the Champions League and the Premier League this season, keeping a 100% record in the Champions league.
FC Copenhagen is presently sitting in the third position in Group G with one point and sixth in the Danish Superliga with 15 points in 11 games.
Erling Haaland has now scored 26 goals in 21 UEFA Champions League matches (group stage to final), his effort last time out helping Pep Guardiola’s men to see off Dortmund.
Walker’s injury-enforced absence means João Cancelo is set to play at right-back again, with Sergio Gómez likely to operate on the left.
City and Copenhagen have met before, in the 2008/09 Europa League round of 32. After a 2-2 draw in Denmark, City won 2-1 at home, Craig Bellamy scoring both goals.
FC Copenhagen has only scored one goal in six UEFA Champions League matches against English opponents (W1 D2 L3), with that goal the winner from Marcus Allback in a 1-0 win over Manchester United in November 2006.
