Manchester City Beat Copenhagen to Reach Champions League Quarter-Finals

Manchester City entered this year’s Champions League race as defending champion, and they’re on a path to lift another trophy. Man City made it to the quarter-finals for the seventh consecutive season after scoring a confident win against Copenhagen on Wednesday. Man City was on fire since the very start of their face-off with Copenhagen, and they were in a 2-0 lead just nine minutes later, thanks to the early goals scored by Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez. Mohamed Elyounoussi kept Copenhagen’s hopes alive and halved the deficit 29 minutes into the match, but his side still struggled to catch up. Erling Haaland eventually sealed the deal and led Man City to the 3-1 win with his 41st Champions League goal. This victory sent Man City directly to their seventh consecutive Champions League quarter-finals. The draw will be held on March 15, and Pep Guardiola is fully aware they’ll have to face some tough opponents on their way to another Champions League title. “I don’t know […] which opponents we are going to face, but they will be really, really tough. In that situation, it’s a question of wait and see. The important thing is, seven years in a row being there, this is honestly, quite impressive,” said Guardiola after the match.
