On February 13, 2024, Manchester City played against F.C. Copenhagen at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark for the UEFA Champions League 2023/24 round of 16 first leg match. Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish were in the City line-up, with Jeremy Doku and Matheus Nunes being on the bench after the win over Everton. The match started with Phil Foden playing a reverse pass into De Bruyne, who scored the first goal for City.

Copenhagen equalized with Magnus Mattsson’s first-time finish after Ederson’s poor kick out from the back. Bernardo Silva then scored for City just before halftime. In the second half, City continued to dominate but had difficulty scoring a third goal, with Erling Haaland going closest with a header after 76 minutes. Phil Foden eventually scored in stoppage time, securing a vital first-leg win for City.

In another match, Real Madrid faced off against an unnamed opponent. Jude Bellingham was absent due to injury, and Carlo Ancelotti gave a start to Brahim Diaz while Nacho replaced Lucas Vazquez in defense. The last time these two teams met was in the 2022/23 season in the group stages, with Leipzig claiming a 3-2 win in Germany and Real Madrid winning the reverse clash 2-0. After a scoreless first half, Real Madrid broke the deadlock three minutes into the second half with a goal by Diaz.

Vinicius Junior went close to scoring a second goal in the 72nd minute, but his strike crashed against the upright and the rebound went unfinished.
