Manchester City’s Nordic connection – The City Xtra Quiz: Week Three



| Last Updated:


It’s time for week three of City Xtra’s weekly Manchester City quiz, brought to you by fcQuiz, with this edition taking a look at the Nordic connection with the club.

It’s a fitting theme for week three as Manchester City travel to Scandinavia to face off against FC Copenhagen in the last-16 of the UEFA Champions League, hoping to secure a positive result to bring back to Manchester in next month’s second-leg tie.

But just how much do you know about Manchester City and their history with Nordic opposition?

Tuesday night’s meeting with the side from the Danish capital will be the fifth meeting between the two clubs, following on from a UEFA Champions League group stage bond last season en route to Manchester City winning the tournament in Istanbul.

Are you ready to test your knowledge?

Whilst Manchester City have plenty to reminisce on when it comes to meetings with Nordic opposition, their current first-team squad has plenty to be proud of when it comes to Scandinavian superstars.

Erling Haaland and Oscar Bobb have taken the first-team squad by storm this season, with the latter also breaking into Norway’s senior first-team squad and scoring his first Premier League goal with a match-winning strike against Newcastle United.

Manchester City take on FC Copenhagen at Parken in the Danish capital on Tuesday evening, with kick-off in the UEFA Champions League scheduled for 20:00 (UK).
