Manchester City-Copenhagen 3-1: Guardiola in the quarterfinals on velvet, Haaland joins Aguero

Manchester City makes no mistakes and outclasses Copenhagen in the second leg too. The 3-1 with which Guardiola’s men once again eliminated the courageous Copenhagen at the Etihad earned them passage to the quarter-finals, as well as their eighth success in as many outings in this edition of the competition. The game was put on ice after just 10 minutes thanks to goals from Akanji and Alvarez (on a sensational duck from Grabara), then the usual Haaland took over. The Norwegian, in fact, definitively closes the score in the second half with his 41st goal in 37 matches played in the Champions League: the striker equals Kun Agueri and targets Alessandro Del Piero, the next champion in the ranking of strikers in the tournament. For the Danes, Elyonoussi’s huge 1-2 goal was worth nothing: Neestrup’s team leaves this Champions League with their heads held high, with many youngsters showing off in such an important showcase.

The social moment

MVP

THE BEST – Erling HAALAND: 41 in the Champions League, where he hadn’t scored for a while. He joins Aguero in the ranking of all-time goalscorers in the competition, but what is frightening is that he scored these goals in just 37 games. A devastating player, whose only limit is truly the sky.
