Manchester City 5-0 Copenhagen, HIGHLIGHTS Champions League: Haaland brace leads City to five-star win

Manchester City will try to make it three victories in a row in the Champions League group stage when they face FC Copenhagen at the Etihad Stadium tonight.

With the Blues currently three points ahead at the top of Group G, a win today might put City on the verge of qualifying for the last-16, but that will rely on the outcome of Sevilla vs. Borussia Dortmund.

Pep Guardiola’s team has previously defeated Sevilla and Dortmund 4-0 and 2-1, respectively, and will want to continue their scoring streak in tonight’s match.

FC Copenhagen is presently third in the group rankings, with one point from their first two games.

The Danish champions were beaten 3-0 at Dortmund on matchday one, but were able to earn a point against Sevilla at home with a goalless draw.
Kyle Walker, Kalvin Phillips, and John Stones are all out, although Rodri might return after missing Sunday’s 6-3 loss to Manchester United. At around 6:45 p.m., we’ll bring you the verified team news.

What Jack Grealish had to say

“Do you know what to do when your luck runs out? Was the third goal your own? (Yes) Oh, I didn’t receive the assist either. No, that’s what I mean; I’m going through one of those patches right now, but like I said, I’m loving it and have played a lot of games recently, and I’m grateful to the manager for that. I’m glad I’m playing football with a grin on my face, and I’m fitting in nicely and playing with confidence.”

After the game, Jack Grealish spoke to BT Sport:

“I really enjoyed it!” Playing in the Champions League at the Etihad is always a fantastic experience, and coming away with a 5-0 win, three wins out of three, and top of the league, is even better. It was a fantastic evening.

“I feel like I’ve gotten back to myself in the last three or four games.” Playing with that much freedom and assurance. It would be nice if I could get on the scoresheet; I was desperate tonight, especially in the second half, but it’s all about having fun and winning right now.”
