Manchester City v FC Copenhagen live stream and match preview
Looking for a live stream of Manchester City vs FC Copenhagen? We have what you need.
Manchester City will be aiming to continue their perfect Champions League start when FC Copenhagen visit the Etihad on Wednesday night.
Pep Guardiola’s side are flying high, topping Group G with six points, five ahead of the Danish visitors.
City opened their European campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of Sevilla and followed that up by beating Borussia Dortmund 2-1, responding to a Jude Bellingham goal with late strikes from John Stones and Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian striker has been in unstoppable form this season and that continued with a hat-trick in a 6-3 thrashing at rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
Phil Foden also scored three goals in a superb attacking performance for the Citizens, who have now won four games in a row in all competitions.
Developing a plan to deal with Haaland will be one of Copenhagen’s priorities as the 22-year-old’s total for the season so far stands at 17 goals in 11 games in all competitions.
The Danish champions lost 3-0 at Dortmund on Matchday 1 but drew 0-0 at home to Sevilla last time out.
They haven’t been in top form recently, however; a 1-0 home win against Aarhus on Sunday was welcome after a four-match winless streak.
Stones is injured for City after picking up a hamstring injury while on duty in England, but Aymeric Laporte is nearing a comeback and Rodri could be back after missing out on United.
Kalvin Phillips is out with a shoulder problem.

Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 20:00 BST on Wednesday, October 5 and it is shown on BT Sport 3 (opens in a new tab) in Great Britain. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions League matches, unfortunately your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To work around this, all you have to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
