Manchester City started the Champions league campaign of 2024 with the "right boot", they shadowed Copenhagen 1-3 at Parken Stadium. Not many anticipated Copenhagen to pose a significant challenge for Manchester City on Tuesday. However, the game turned out to be closer than anticipated, even though the Blues managed to secure a 3-1 victory. With a second consecutive victory within reach, the English champions delivered an impressively polished performance in Denmark.

Match MC's and Highlights of Manchester City vs Copenhagen

Kevin De Bruyne's comeback from injury has come at the perfect moment for Pep Guardiola, as the team's playmaker is regaining his top form.
The English club got off to a great start when the Belgian player found the back of the net with a stunning shot. He made the most of the assist from Phil Foden, who set him up perfectly.

Despite City's tremendous striking power Copenhagen did not fall. They showed their resilience by tying the game after De Bruyne's opener. Similar to their performances against top-tier teams like Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Galatasaray, Copenhagen managed to stay competitive and remained within reach of their  adversaries Manchester City .

Mattsson capitalized on a fortunate rebound near the penalty area, unleashing a powerful first-time shot that sailed beyond Ederson's reach.
Mattsson had another opportunity to increase his score shortly after, finding room for himself in the box once again. However, he unfortunately sent his shot over the bar from a close distance.

Just before the end of the first half Silva took the lead the city by connecting within the box with De Bryune and power shooting at the left post. With the last kick of the game, Phil Foden scored the third goal, giving the English club a 3-1 lead going into the second match.

Where was Haaland?

Even though Manchester City  took a perfect win home from Copenhagen, a much anticipated name was out of reach. Recently, Erling Haaland has been gradually getting back to his fitness level, but Grabara, who is quite outstanding, was able to prevent him from doing so. When he encountered a cross on the six-yard line during the latter stages of the game, his header compelled the goalkeeper to make yet another diving save.
