Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen live stream: How to watch Champions League fixture online and on TV tonight

After defeating rivals Manchester United in the Premier League, Manchester City return to European action to continue their strong scoring form.

FC Copenhagen travel to the Etihad Stadium to prevent Pep Guardiola’s side from continuing a perfect start to their Champions League campaign.

The Danish capital club were also winners at the weekend, with Lukas Lerager’s late goal against AGF earning a much-needed three points.

But Jacob Neestrup’s side are yet to reproduce the form that took them to the top of both the regular season and the Superliga play-off tables last year and it could be a long, tough night against either side , who will probably fight for continental success again this year .

Pep Guardiola suggested on the eve of the game that Rodri could return to the Manchester City squad after missing out on the derby win over Manchester United if he gets through training. However, Kyle Walker will likely be unavailable after being substituted in the first half of that 6-3 win. Walker’s England team-mates Kalvin Phillips and John Stones are both currently out through injury. There might be a temptation to rest Erling Haaland after another Premier League hat-trick.
