Manchester City Secures Spot in Champions League Quarterfinals for Seventh Consecutive Year

Xinhua News Agency, London, March 6 (Reporter Zhang Wei) – Manchester City, the defending champion, secured a spot in the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the seventh consecutive season after defeating Copenhagen 3-1 on March 6, with an aggregate score of 6-2 over two rounds.

Having already established a two-goal lead in the first round, Manchester City’s advancement to the next stage was almost certain. Despite leaving key players such as De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Foden, and Walker on the bench for the home game, “Blue Moon” dominated the match. Akanji opened the scoring just five minutes into the game with a well-placed volley off a corner kick, followed by Alvarez’s powerful shot from the left to double the lead.

Copenhagen managed to pull one back through a quick counterattack in the 29th minute, but Haaland restored Manchester City’s two-goal lead just before halftime with a clinical finish. The scoreline remained 3-1 until the final whistle, sealing Manchester City’s easy victory over Copenhagen.

As Manchester City awaits the draw to determine their quarter-final opponents on March 15, they will first face a tough challenge in the Premier League against league leaders Liverpool on the 10th. With just a one-point difference between the two teams, the upcoming clash promises to be a thrilling battle for the top spot in the league standings.
