Manchester City secure two-goal advantage in Champions League Clash against FC Copenhagen

Posted : 14 February 2024

Manchester City resumed their Champions League title defense with a solid performance against FC Copenhagen in the first leg of their last-16 tie. Kevin de Bruyne provided an early lead for Pep Guardiola's side, setting the stage for a dominant display.


However, a blunder by Ederson allowed Copenhagen's Magnus Mattsson to score a stunning goal. Despite this setback, Bernardo Silva cleverly flicked in a goal just before halftime to restore Manchester City's lead.


Guardiola expressed satisfaction with the result, emphasizing the importance of top players performing on big stages. Copenhagen, returning to action after a two-month break, posed some challenges for City, with ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Kamil Grabara making crucial saves.


Jack Grealish's early departure due to a potential muscular injury disrupted City's rhythm, but they maintained control, with Phil Foden securing a two-goal cushion with a late strike. Guardiola praised his team's patience and expressed hope for finishing the job at home in the second leg.


Despite the victory, Guardiola faces concerns over Grealish's injury, hoping it's not as severe as it seemed. Additionally, Bernardo Silva picked up an ankle knock during the game. Manchester City will host Copenhagen in the second leg on March 6, aiming to secure their place in the next round.
