Apathetic City's UEFA Campaign Returns To Denmark
Google language translator
The UEFA Cup draw for the last 32 of this season's tournament in Nyon today dictated that City's 11th UEFA Cup game of the season will take place in Copenhagen on either Wedesday 18th or Thursday 19th February 2009.
The return leg at Eastlands is confirmed for Thursday, 26th February.
FC Copenhagen are no mugs in the Danish SAS-Ligaen, currently in 2nd position and cannot be underestimated in Europe, even though they finished third in Group G behind Saint Etienne and Valencia.
Copenhagen might well get plenty of support from Denmark's very own FC Midtjylland whom City beat on penalties back in August.
Should City defeat the Danes, then we will go on to possibly face our third Danish opponents of the season in AaB Aalborg or Spain's Deportivo La Coruna.
Considering some of City's increasingly shocking displays, what an opportunity to progress this draw has given the club.
For now, that opportunity can go on hold for two months while the situation within the City squad and increasing failure in the Premier League are urgently addressed.
