With the Premier League champions in explosive form it could be a long night for the side from the Danish capital at the Etihad stadium

Manchester City host FC Copenhagen on Wednesday evening on matchday three of the Champions League with Pep Guardiola's men aiming for their third win in Group G.

The Premier League champions are overwhelming favourites against the side from Denmark who are yet to score in this season's competition.

Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen latest odds

Bet365's price of 1/25 (1.04) for City to win is one of the smallest we will see for any team at any stage of the tournament this season and underlines just how fancied the hosts are to claim a victory.

The visitors are available at 40/1 (41.00) to pull off one of the biggest shocks in recent years, with the draw priced at 14/1 (15.00).

Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen first goal scorer odds

Erling Haaland is on course to enjoy a record-breaking first season in Manchester with the Norwegian striker scoring at an extraordinary rate.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward is offered at 8/5 (2.60) to break the deadlock ahead of Riyad Mahrez at 11/2 (6.50) and Kevin De Bruyne at 6/1 (7.00).

The shortest priced player for the Danish champions is Andreas Cornelius at 28/1 (29.00).

Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen preview

A high-scoring home win looks extremely likely at the Etihad stadium with City in rampant form in front of goal.

The Blues demolished cross-city rivals Manchester United 6-3 at the weekend and have been relentless in racking up big wins, regardless of the competition.

With Haaland in seemingly unstoppable form there should be plenty of interest in backing him and his side to have another enjoyable evening in the final third against a Copenhagen side that lost 3-0 to Borussia Dortmund in their first away game in the tournament.

Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen tips and predictions

City are priced at 4/5 (1.80) to score over 3.5 goals, something they have managed in six of their 10 competitive games this season and this looks like the best way to get the hosts onside in a tough market.
