City is easy


By: Manu Tournoux

Manchester City confirmed their superiority over Copenhagen this Wednesday in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. As in the first leg, the Skyblues won 3-1.

Manchester City validated their ticket for the quarter-finals of the Champions League this Wednesday evening without a single shot. Three weeks after their victory in Denmark (1-3), the Citizens made the difference by the same score at the Etihad against Copenhagen. Without giving their opponent the slightest chance.

Very quickly today, the Skyblues made the difference. And rather twice than once since Akanji (5e) and Alvarez (9e) found the fault in the first ten minutes of play. Not without a gross hand fault from the Danish goalkeeper on the second goal.

Haaland essential

Elyounoussi tried to create a semblance of suspense by reducing the gap (29e), but the inevitable Haaland added to the score and hit the nail on the head in added time of the first act (3-1, 45e+3). For a cumulative score brought to 6-2 over the two eighths.

Undefeated for 20 matches – including 18 victories – Manchester City continues its unbeaten streak that began in December. Like PSG, Bayern and Real Madrid, the club coached by Pep Guardiola joins the European Top 8 while impatiently awaiting Friday March 15 – date of the quarter draw.
