FC Copenhagen vs Manchester City Betting Tips

  • 3 Way – Manchester City 6/25 
  • 1st Goal – Manchester City 1/4 
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Kevin De Bruyne 59/20
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Phil Foden 19/10 

3 Way – Manchester City 6/25 

It is difficult to bet against Manchester City now. They have been flawless since the turn of the new year. Racking up a string of wins and accumulating a 10-game winning streak. They have the services of Goal Machine Erling Haaland and Midfield Maestro Kevin De Bruyne. They are team pumping on all cylinders now.

FC København have been inconsistent in recent matches with two wins in their last 5 matches. none of those wins came as back-to-back wins unfortunately for the Danish side. They now face the prospect of trying to beat World Champions Manchester City. David and Goliath do not fit the narrative of this encounter. The closest comparison is Ant vs an Elephant.

When the draw was made, many of us in world football were thinking “they probably stand a chance of causing an upset.” This was weeks ago before Manchester City got into the groove of things and started to play like a team without flaws, weaknesses, and deficiencies. Just like those who have been following Manchester City’s Journey under Pep Guardiola, I believe this match will end in a victory for Manchester City. The odds on a win for City are 6/25 

Away Team Clean Sheet – Yes 19/25 

For City only perfection will do. Just like Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona this team has superb balance. They are formidable in attack but just as Resilient in defense. As much as the prospect of praising the front line for their achievements under the legendary Spanish Coach. This team deserves recognition for how they conduct themselves defensively. They kept a well-deserved clean sheet against Everton on the weekend and they have not conceded more than 2 goals in their last 4 matches. Ruben Dias and John Stones formed a formidable partnership at the back and with Ederson behind them. They are more than capable of keeping a clean sheet against this opponent. The odds on them achieving this goal are 19/25. 

1st Goal – Manchester City 1/4

City have been the first team on the score sheet in 6 out of their last 7 fixtures. It is a trend that we expect to continue in this match because they will be looking to wrap this match up early and focus on their clash with Chelsea coming up this weekend. Being current holders of the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League means that they are defending both titles simultaneously. That is why you expect Manchester City to come out guns blazing in the first half and more reserved in the second half. the odds-on City being the first team on the score sheet is set to 1/4 


Anytime Goal Scorer – Kevin De Bruyne 59/20 

In recent fixtures Kevin De Bruyne has been the Assist King, we know him to be. Grabbing 3 assists in his last 3 appearances. his output is impressive as usual but, for this upcoming fixture. I expect a goal out of him and an assist. The odds on him finding the back of the net at any time during this match are set at 59/20 

Anytime Goal Scorer – Phil Foden 19/10

Hattrick, a hero against Brentford a week ago and a player that does not get as much praise as some of his teammates. Phil Foden comes alive in the UEFA Champions League and has impressed on numerous occasions. He has been playing well in recent times including a spell as the first-choice right winger for Pep Guardiola. The faith that Manager Pep Guardiola has put on this English talent is testament to the wide man’s dedication and effectiveness in this team.    

We are quick to forget the numerous players who have debuted for City from the academy under Pep Guardiola and have been forgotten. Foden has stood the test of time, making 252 appearances for Pep Guardiola. That is more appearances than Gerard Pique, Gabriel Jesus, Segio Busquets, Manuel Neuer, Carlos Puyol and Andres Iniesta. Only Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gundogan, Ederson, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silver have featured more for Pep Guardiola than Phil Foden.

If he is in the park on Tuesday night expect to see his name amongst the goal scorers.
