Hello from the Etihad
Good evening and welcome to our coverage of the Champions league fixture between Manchester City and FC Copenhagen.
Pep Guardiola’s team are flying right now and all eyes will be on their new talisman, Erling Haaland.
City are sitting pretty at the top of Group G with a maximum six points from their opening two fixtures, and another win tonight will all but secure their safe passage into the knockout rounds.
Copenhagen, meanwhile, are third having lost away at Borussia Dortmund in matchday one before a goalless draw with Sevilla last time out.
City are currently on a run of five matches in 14 days so Guardiola will be looking to utilise the full extent of his squad during this busy period.
Pep Guardiola’s team selection can be as unpredictable as Will Smith at an awards ceremony, so trying to second-guess his starting eleven tonight is a tough ask.
Copenhagen have been struggling for consistency this season and sit sixth in the Danish Superliga after five wins and six defeats from their opening 11 games. A trip to the Etihad certainly feels ominous.
Team news is expected shortly, stay with us for all the pre-match build up!
