Preamble

Manchester City are the quintuple-winning European and world champions. Copenhagen are playing in the knockout stage of the Champions League for only the second time. Manchester City have won all of their last ten games. Copenhagen haven’t played in two months because of Denmark’s winter break. Manchester City beat Copenhagen 5-0 last season. Copenhagen have never beaten Manchester City.

But! In football, you never know. Copenhagen may have never beaten City, but they’ve never lost at home to them either, holding the champions-elect 0-0 last time round, and drawing 2-2 in a 2009 Europa League fixture. In addition, they won the last match against English opposition at the Parken Stadium, that absurd 4-3 comeback victory over Manchester United during this season’s groups. So while City are the hottest of favourites tonight – and for the overall tie, and for the overall competition – you never know. Kick-off is at 8pm GMT, 9pm in Copenhagen. It’s on!
