Manchester City set new Champions League record in Copenhagen win

Manchester City set a new UEFA Champions League record after beating FC Copenhagen 3-1 in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

Pep Guardiola’s side secured a comfortable first-leg advantage in the Danish capital, as goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden saw the Citizens leave the Parken Stadium with a two-goal advantage.

City are aiming to become just the second club to win back-to-back European crowns in the Champions League era and have made a superb start to their defence of the competition.

 

The holders progressed from the group stage with a perfect record of six wins from six games, before earning a seventh straight victory in Denmark this week.

In the process, Manchester City have become the first team in Champions League history to score 3+ goals in seven consecutive games. Guardiola’s side scored exactly three goals in each of their group games, before repeating the feat against Copenhagen on Tuesday night.
