Copenhagen vs Man City: Top free betting tips
Man City will continue their Champions League defence on Tuesday, 13 February when they take on Copenhagen away from home in the first leg of their round of 16 matchup. The Blues have won every match in the competition so far this season and will fancy their chances of continuing that trend on Tuesday. Copenhagen, meanwhile, will be looking to throw a spanner in the works. Check out our full Copenhagen vs Man City prediction below.
Match handicap prediction: Man City -1.5
Man City are the strong favourites to win this match and we are backing them to win it by at least a couple of goals. The Blues have won their most recent three matches by a margin of two goals and only twice on their current ten-match winning streak have they won by a solitary goal. Out of the teams remaining in the tournament, only three conceded more goals than Copenhagen in the group stages so Man City shouldn't have too many problems finding the back of the net on Tuesday.
Anytime goalscorer prediction: Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland may have looked a little rusty when he first returned from injury but he was back to his scintillating best against Everton at the weekend. The Norweigan scored two goals against the Toffees on Saturday and he is difficult to stop when he has momentum on his side. Haaland is currently the joint top goalscorer in the competition this season and he will see this match as an opportunity to move clear of the rest.
Correct score prediction: Copenhagen 0-3 Man City
Man City should have too much firepower for Copenhagen, who were never expected to reach this stage of the competition in the first place. We expect Guardiola's men to have the tie wrapped up after Tuesday night which will allow the Spaniard to rest some key players in the second leg.
Copenhagen vs Man City team news
Copenhagen predicted lineup vs Man City
Copenhagen don't come into the match with a full squad which will hamper their chances further. Midfielder, Luka Lerager, was sent off against Galatasaray in their final group match and will therefore miss this one due to suspension. Meanwhile, Birger Meling, Theo Sander and David Khochovola are all injury doubts which could open the door for Rasmus Hojlund's brother, Oscar, to start in midfield. Teenage sensation, Roony Bardghji, will look to enhance his reputation further up front.
Grabara – Ankersen, Diks, Vavro, Jelert – Goncalves, Falk, Hojlund – Achouri, Elyounoussi, Bardghji
Man City predicted lineup vs Copenhagen
Pep Guardiola comes into this one with no fresh injury concerns after his squad came through the match against Everton with no new concerns. Pep roulette was in full operation for the clash with the toffees with Josko Gvardiol, Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne all starting on the bench. You would expect at least three of those four to go straight back into the starting lineup for the match against Copenhagen although Gvardiol could miss out again.
Ederson – Walker, Stones, Dias, Ake – Rodri, B.Silva, De Bruyne – Doku, Haaland, Foden

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE IS BACK!!!
We face off against Copenhagen on Tuesday in the first leg, should be a routine W.
I’m expecting a somewhat strong team with a bit of rotation to avoid injuries.
