The Champions League returns as FC Copenhagen face the mammoth task of trying to make it past holders Manchester City in the round-of-16.
Domestically, Copenhagen find themselves off the pace in the race for the Danish Superliga title with FC Midtjylland currently three points clear at the top of the table.
In their most recent outing, the Lions defeated Norwegian side FC Molde 3-1 in the group-stage of the Atlantic Cup.
They face a much tougher test on Tuesday night, though, as they look to topple the Champions League holders.

After last season’s Champions League success, Manchester City are 15/8 favourites with starsports.bet to retain their European crown and – with the plethora of talent they have at their disposal – it’s not hard to see why.
After a spell on the sidelines for both players, Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne are now back in the fold for Manchester City – a terrifying prospect for any side.
⭐ STARSPORTS.BET MATCH MARKETS ⭐
They have both started superbly as well with De Bruyne slotting back into midfield like he’d never been away and Haaland bagging a brilliant brace at the weekend in just his second game back.
Despite Copenhagen having the home advantage here, I am struggling to see anything else other than a convincing City victory. I am backing an away win to nil here at 17/20 with starsports.bet.
