Team News
[color=blue]Manchester City[/color]
Man City duo Rodri and John Stones were both absent from Sunday's derby win due to injury, while Kyle Walker was forced off with discomfort in his lower leg towards the end of the first half. Stones is set to miss Wednesday's clash with a hamstring issue, with both Rodri and Walker doubtful.

Kalvin Phillips, meanwhile, remains sidelined with a shoulder injury, so Ilkay Gundogan could retain his place in a deeper midfield role in between playmakers Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva.

Joao Cancelo is set to switch to right-back in the absence of Walker and Stones, while Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte will be pushing to start at centre-back ahead of Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake.

Guardiola has admitted that Haaland will be rested at some stage this season, but the Norwegian goal machine is expected to continue as the central striker against Copenhagen – the 22-year-old has scored a remarkable 26 goals in just 21 Champions League appearances, netting on average every 62 minutes.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Gomez; De Bruyne, Gundogan, Bernardo; Mahrez, Haaland, Grealish

FC Copenhagen
As for Copenhagen, Akinkunmi Amoo is ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury, while Mamoudou Karamoko is set to miss the whole of October with an unspecified issue.

Former Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal goalkeeper Mathew Ryan, who has conceded a total of 21 goals in seven appearances against Man City, is expected to start between the sticks, with protection provided in front of the Australian by centre-backs Denis Vavro and Davit Khocholava.

Winger Viktor Claesson, who is Copenhagen's top scorer so far this term with seven strikes, is set to retain his place on the right flank, while summer signing Andreas Cornelius is expected to start as the lone striker.
Copenhagen possible starting lineup:
Ryan; Diks, Vavro, Khocholava, Kristiansen; Claesson, Falk, Zeca, Stramenic, Daramy; Cornelius
Prediction: Manchester City 4-0 Copenhagen
