Copenhagen v Man City Betting Tips & Predictions

After winning 5-0 in the reverse fixture just six days ago, Manchester City are odds-on favourites to win their Champions League clash with Copenhagen on Tuesday evening.

Man City maintained their prolific goal-scoring form with a 4-0 victory over Southampton at the weekend, while Copenhagen were held to a 1-1 draw by Nordsjaelland. 

The defending Premier League champions can seal a knockout berth for the 10th consecutive season with victory on Tuesday.

Copenhagen will still be in with a chance of finishing third regardless of the result, but could be knocked out of the Champions League if they fail to win.

Total Goals: Over 3.5 

10/11 (Bet365)

There has been over 3.5 total goals in Manchester City’s last three matches.

Four or more goals were scored in five of Copenhagen’s eight matches in the Europa Conference League last term, and they obviously conceded five to City a matter of days ago.

The home team are yet to score in the Champions League this season, but that shouldn’t put you off backing the over, even at 3.5.

City’s attack could easily do this on its own. 

Total Cards: Under 2.5

6/4 (Paddy Power)

These teams have just eight Champions League cards combined through the first three matchdays, and there was a lone booking shown at the Etihad Stadium last Wednesday.

As expected, it wasn’t much of a contest, and Copenhagen were going through the motions for most of the 90 minutes. 

This fixture could well take a similar pattern with City cruising to an early lead and winning at a canter.

It isn’t going to be a competitive match – the referee probably won’t have much to do.

To Win Both Halves: Manchester City

Evens (Boyle Sports)

There is no point backing City to win straight up at 2/13, nor is there value in City and over 2.5 goals at 4/9. Instead, backing Pep Guardiola’s team to win both halves is the way to go. 

City have won both halves in three of their last four matches. The one time they didn’t do so included a 4-0 first half against Manchester United.
