Manchester City continued with their dominance with a 4-0 win over Southampton during the weekend. Copenhagen continue to struggle for wins and the team dropped points in the 1-1 draw with Nordsjælland.Manchester City have been in stunning form – aided by the brilliance of players like Erling Haaland – since the site of the season. The team has picked up six consecutive victories with three of them featuring a score of 3-0 or more.
Copenhagen have been struggling for goals and they have been unable to get a lot even in the domestic games. They will be exposed too often by City, who are strong in almost every area of the pitch.There is no stopping Erling Haaland forward to his league tally for the campaign to 9 goals in as many games after his late effort against Southampton.
He has scored in his last nine out of the last 10 games for club and country. The striker has been in such good form that it may not be possible to expect excellent prices when trying to back a goal anytime.FC Copenhagen vs Manchester City Predictions
City have scored 11 goals across three wins in this group so far
The Citizens have scored three or more in nine of their last 11 games
Copenhagen have failed to score across all three group games
City have won by three or more in four straight matches
City on a roll
A 4-0 win over Southampton at the weekend saw City continue their breathtaking start, although Erling Haaland did slow down to a score just three times across two big wins last week. The forward hit a brace in their 5-0 win over Copenhagen, sending City to the brink of the last 16.
The Citizens can make it four wins from four in Europe this term when they head to Denmark this week. They’ve hit 11 goals across their three wins so far and they can rack up a few more in Tuesday’s trip.
City seemingly can’t be contained right now, with Haaland scoring at an unbelievable pace. He has 28 goals in 22 appearances in this competition. A goal on Tuesday would see him equal the tallies of David Trezeguet (58 apps), Roy Makaay (61 apps) and Patrick Kluivert (71 apps).
Haaland is close to unbackable as an anytime scorer given his scintillating form, but City have plenty of great attacking options. Riyad Mahrez has returned from international duty in fine form, scoring in consecutive games. The winger scored seven times in 11 starts for City in this competition last season and he’s a great anytime scoring option.
City to record a comfortable win
While the visitors are free-flowing, Copenhagen are yet to score in the Champions League this term. While they were able to hold struggling Sevilla to a 0-0 draw, they lost the other two group games 8-0 on aggregate.
City are worth backing for another big victory, having scored 15 goals across their last three games. The visitors have won each of their last four by three clear goals, while they’ve scored at least three times in nine of their last 11 games.
Given the hosts’ blunt attack, City look good with a -2 handicap in this trip. I’m backing them to hit another three goals, with a 3-0 away win my correct score prediction.
