Pep Guardiola has named a 21-man squad to travel to our UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie against FC Copenhagen.

We take on the Danish champions at the Parken Stadium at 20:00 (UK) on Tuesday 13 February.

Ahead of that one, Guardiola, his staff and the players left Manchester for Denmark this afternoon.

Guardiola’s FC Copenhagen preview

After winning this historic competition for the first time during our unforgettable 2022/23 campaign, we began our defence of the title with six wins from six in the group stage.

Copenhagen are in the last-16 after finishing second in Group A above Galatasaray and Manchester United.

We played Jacob Neestrup’s team twice in the groups last season, winning 5-0 at home before a 0-0 draw in the Danish capital.
