PREVIEW

Manchester City can move to the brink of qualification for the last 16 with a home win over FC Copenhagen.

The reigning English champion comes on the back 6-3 win over Manchester United on Sunday where Haaland, who has taken the Premier League by storm with 15 goals in eight games, scored three goals.

Haaland may be kept fresh for bigger matches ahead, while City manager Pep Guardiola has injury concerns over right back Kyle Walker and holding midfielder Rodri.

City has already beaten Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund in the group stage and would advance with back-to-back wins over Copenhagen.

The Danish side, meanwhile, is currently third after it played a draw against Sevilla and would aim to keep its contention in the competition alive.
