We have a clash at the Etihad with Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen this Wednesday, March 6. Man City won 3-1 in Denmark and take a commanding lead back home. Champions League odds certainly don’t think Copenhagen have a chance of winning on Wednesday, let alone overturning the aggregate scorelines.

A spot in the UCL quarterfinals is at stake and Man City are confident of securing their spot and getting closer to defending their crown, but can Copenhagen make things difficult? Don’t miss my Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen free betting picks to find out.

Man City vs FC Copenhagen picks and predictions

Man City won the first of these two games 3-1 at the Parken Stadium on Valentine's Day, and the reality is the score line didn’t really reflect the overall balance of the game.

Copenhagen's Magnus Mattsson equalized in the 34th minute before City went on to win, but the home side had just four shots to City’s 27. City had 79% of the possession, controlling the game for large parts and never really looking threatened.

Foden scored that night and he’s been in incredible form. With City -626 favorites to win this game, we’re likely to see Pep Guardiola’s team score plenty — and the 23-year-old will surely be involved. A deep look into the stats will help us get a handle on just how good Foden has been this season and across the last month in particular.

The midfielder is already on 17 goals this season for his club and has become one of Guardiola’s key men. It had looked like he perhaps wouldn’t reach his potential, but this season he’s finally blossoming into the player we all expected him to be.

In 27 Premier League games — with two of those coming from the bench — Foden has scored 11 goals and assisted another, averaging 3.1 shots per game. 

He's also been efficient in the Champions League games where he’s scored four more goals and set up three. He’s reached the point where he’s averaging nearly a goal contribution per game. Since Christmas he’s played 13 times, all of which were starts, and he’s scored 10 goals and set up a further four. 

In the past two games we’ve seen Foden score three goals and be named Man of the Match twice, and on Wednesday he has every chance of another performance that he had in the first leg of this matchup. Odds of +125 on Foden to score offer real value while he continues to play at this level.

Over 0.5 cards for FC Copenhagen

Man City have scored three goals in each of their seven Champions League games so far this season, and with Copenhagen suffering some injuries, there’s a strong chance they match that here. City have allowed just two goals in their past five league games and should keep the Danes out here.

To wrap up the SGP I'm backing Copenhagen to receive a card. It’ll be a long, frustrating game for the visitors at the Etihad, and one in which they’re out of possession for the majority. They need to win the ball back and attack City in order to have any chance of pulling off an upset. We saw them get two yellows in the first game and they are almost certain to get at least one here.

Man City vs FC Copenhagen side and Over/Under analysis

When it comes to the moneyline I simply can’t recommend backing Man City to win when the odds come in at -626. They’re almost certain to win and I personally can’t see any way in which they don’t, but I can’t ever recommend betting anything at those odds. 

There’s no value to be had on the total goals market either with Over 2.5 goals coming in at -264 and Under 2.5 goals at +215. Over 2.5 has landed in all seven of Man City’s Champions League games and they’re the best team on the planet, so it should happen again. However, at odds of -264, it simply isn’t worth playing.
