The EPL champions were convincing winners when the sides met last week and another big victory for the Blues should be on the cards

Manchester City will travel to Denmark for a midweek battle versus F.C. Copenhagen. The two teams recently met last week when City dominated Copenhagen 5-0 at Etihad Stadium.

Tuesday’s rematch comes after both clubs competed in their domestic leagues over the weekend. City continued its dominant run in the EPL with a 4-0 victory against Southampton. Copenhagen drew 1-1 in the Danish Superliga against FC Nordsjælland after a stunner in injury time.

Copenhagen will have the luxury of its home crowd backing them, but even so, it will be hard to produce a result against England’s reigning champions.

Manchester City vs Copenhagen odds are current as of Monday, Oct. 10, on BetMGM Sportsbook.

Oddsmakers were far more generous to Copenhagen at home compared to last week’s leg on the road. Even so, City is favored to dominate despite travelling to Parken Stadium for Tuesday’s match.

MCFC will continue its win streak in the UCL as they enter this game in top form. Pep Guardiola’s squad appears to be slated for a deep Champions League run, and their dominance in Group G is only the start of something much bigger.

Copenhagen vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Copenhagen’s draw in the Danish Superliga over the weekend is a microcosm of its season thus far. In a match that appeared to be all but over, Jacob Neestrup’s club conceded a goal in the 93’ minute. As a result, the Danish football club now sits seventh on their domestic league table, fighting relegation.

FCK’s fortune has not been much more significant in this year’s Champions League campaign. After last week’s loss to City, Copenhagen sits at the bottom of Group G with a 0-1-2 record. With zero goals scored in the UCL, it is hard to foresee anything other than another big loss.

Even with Tuesday’s impending loss ahead, Copenhagen should not feel too discouraged. Manchester City’s current form has been the catalyst for several convincing defeats for clubs all across Europe over the last two months. City has managed to score over three goals in all but three matches across all competitions this season.

City’s defense has played just as well as the attack, with three clean sheets in its last four matches. Although Guardiola is also expected to be without defenders John Stones and Kyle Walker, Ederson should have few threats at his goal this match.

Copenhagen vs Manchester City Prediction

Copenhagen 0-4 Manchester City

You can expect a similar result to last week’s match when the two teams meet again. City’s relentless attack last week saw goals from three of its own, including a brace by Erling Haaland.

Haaland’s goal against Southampton over the weekend brings his total at City to 20 goals in all competitions. You can expect two more from him in this match, with Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden also finding the back of the net.

Copenhagen’s lackluster attack makes it hard to back the club to produce a goal, particularly against City. Although Rooney Bardghji’s goal over the weekend was promising to see, the likelihood of the Swedish midfielder replicating this in Tuesday’s match is low.

With only two shots and none on goal last week, it is hard to see a different outcome for Copenhagen in this match. Therefore, you can expect FCK’s goalless UCL season to remain intact after the final whistle in this match.

Copenhagen vs Manchester City Best Bets

➕ Manchester City - Total Goals Over 3.5 (+140) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 3 units

Backing this bet for the second straight week should prove profitable once again following Tuesday’s match. City has now scored over 3.5 in three straight matches across all competitions.

With last week’s 5-0 loss still fresh in the minds of Copenhagen, you can expect a similar outcome in this match. MCFC’s attack is far too relentless for the Danish club, which was apparent in last week’s match. City finished the game with 76% possession and 16 shots on target.

➕ Manchester City to Win to Nil Yes (-140) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 3 units

Copenhagen’s zero shots on goal in last week’s match should be enough to see the value in this bet. Manchester City has only managed to concede one goal in this year’s group stage, and Copenhagen will not be able to add to this total.

Despite finding a goal during the weekend, you can expect the same result as last week’s match against City. Copenhagen only managed to see 24% possession last match, which is simply not enough to produce a goal against Man City.
