Man City XI vs Copenhagen: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Champions League today

Copenhagen have the unenviable task of facing a refreshed and first-choice Manchester City team tonight in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola has recently welcomed back Erling Haaland, John Stones and Manuel Akanji from spells on the sidelines, all three of whom played in the weekend win over Everton. Stones and Haaland start in Copenhagen, with Akanji on the bench.


City were even able to rest a handful of star players at the Etihad Stadium ahead of this trip to Denmark.

Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva all return to the starting line-up, after featuring off the bench at the weekend.

Nathan Ake gets the nod at left-back, with Josko Gvardiol not named in the squad.

Guardiola does risk Ruben Dias, who is one yellow card away from a one-game ban, with City potentially preferring the Portuguese defender to serve a possible suspension in the last-16 second leg rather than during the quarter-finals.

Starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Ake, Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva, Foden, Grealish, Haaland

Subs: Ortega Moreno, Carson, Doku, Alvarez, Akanji, Nunes, Bobb, Wright, Susoho, Lewis
