With a two-goal advantage from the first leg, City quickly extinguished any hopes of a Copenhagen comeback with early goals from Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez.

Despite a brief response from the visitors, Erling Haaland scored City’s third goal before half-time, adding to his impressive tally for the season.

Haaland’s form is a positive sign for City and manager Pep Guardiola ahead of their clash with Liverpool. Guardiola had stated that he would focus on the Copenhagen match before thinking about Liverpool, evident in the seven changes he made to the team and the substitution of key player Rodri at half-time.

Despite the changes, City’s performance was not affected, highlighting their strength and depth. With this victory, City continue their remarkable run of successive Champions League quarter-final appearances, second only to Manchester United’s record from 1996-97 to 2002-03.
