It took the Cityzens just 5 minutes to break the deadlock with an incredible finishing by Manuel Akanji. The Switzerland international brilliantly converted a corner kick into the roof of the net.

The second goal came just four minutes later as Julian Alvarez’s shot was pushed into the net by Copenhagen goalkeeper who could have done better to prevent the goal.

Meanwhile, while the visitors started gaining their confidence after a superb finishing by Mohammed Elyounoussi to reduce the scoreline to 2-1, Erling Haaland found the back of the net from a long-range pass from Rodri to end the first 45 minutes 3-1.

The Cityzens failed to find the back of the net in the last 45 minutes of the encounter, although Rico Lewis was closed with a powerful deflected shot that hit the woodwork.

With the victory, Pep Guardiola’s side are now unbeaten in their last 22 UEFA club competition matches (W16 D6), an English record which was previously held by West Ham (17 unbeaten).

Also, Manchester City became the fourth team to win ten games in a row in this competition, after Real Madrid (a run which ended in February 2015) and Bayern (a run of 15 until November 2020 and a ten-game run until November 2013).

Man City are the first team to get three goals or more in eight consecutive matches in the competition’s history.
