Riyad Mahrez Misses Penalty As 10-man Manchester City Draw With Copenhagen

Manchester City were held as Riyad Mahrez failed to score from the penalty mark as 10-man Manchester City settled for a 0-0 draw against Copenhagen in Tuesday’s Champions League.

Pep Guardiola admitted Manchester City are “so tired” after his 10 men draw had qualified them for the Champions League knockout stage.

City had Rodri’s goal controversially disallowed by VAR before Sergio Gomez was dismissed for a professional foul at the Parken Stadium.

City forward Riyad Mahrez also missed a penalty prior to Gomez’s premature first-half exit, which left City playing with 10 men for an hour.

With Erling Haaland rested on the bench ahead of City’s trip to Liverpool on Sunday, the Premier League champions failed to score for the first time in 24 games in all competitions.

But Guardiola’s men got their reward just hours later when they advanced to the knockout stages with two games to spare thanks to Borussia Dortmund’s 1-1 draw with against Sevilla in the other Group G fixture.
