While Pep Guardiola’s side won 6-3 against Manchester United on Sunday, City were without John Stones and Rodri, while Kyle Walker was sent off with injury.
Ruben Dias, meanwhile, was only fit enough for the bench even though there was some good news on the defensive front. Aymeric Laporte played his first minutes of the season after knee surgery in the summer and Nathan Ake and Manuel Akanji are both competent assistants at centre-back.
Given City’s strong position in Group G, a rotation could be in order, especially with a move to Liverpool in the Premier League looming.
Guardiola has already confirmed that Erling Haaland will need to rest sometimes and Wednesday’s game looks like the perfect opportunity.
Manchester City XI vs Copenhagen (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Akanji, Ake, Gomez, Gundogan, Silva, De Bruyne; Palmer, Alvarez, Grealish
