Copenhagen vs Manchester City prediction and betting tips on February 13, 2024
Traditionally, the European tournaments return in the middle of the last month of winter. The round of 16 of the Champions League will begin on Tuesday. Then Copenhagen and Manchester City will be among the first to play. The balance of forces is obvious, but the Danish club played successfully against the giants from England in the autumn – maybe they can repeat that performance? The analytical department of the website has presented a prediction for the match on February 13, 2024.
Copenhagen will begin the full play in the current calendar year only now
“The Lions” are rightfully considered to be the best club in their country. They won their fifteenth title in 2023. Now, by the way, Neestrup’s wards find themselves in the status of catching up, since they lost twice in a row before the holidays and ended up only in 3rd position. Still, then all efforts were devoted to the Champions League – and not in vain. It turned out to improve the performance in the second lap: the team tied with Bayern, beat Manchester United and Galatasaray, which brought 2nd place. The higher mentioned result gave the opportunity to play again in the Champions League play-offs. The first time everything ended at the 1/8 stage and the team is not sure that it will be more successful now.
Manchester City is clearly determined to defend its status
“The Citizens” fought for the most essential European trophy for a long time. Even Pep Guardiola managed to reach the final only once, but it was lost. And thanks to Rodri’s only goal, the club managed to defeat Inter in June 2023. Then the British grandee added the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup to the list of its titles. It is reasonable to mention that there are certain troubles at the inner arena now. Still, even having been in the status of catching up, behind Liverpool, the club remained the No. 1 favourite in British football. Well, there have been no problems in the Champions League so far, and even now the team is not expecting them – the main thing is to avoid underestimating the opponent.
