FC Copenhagen – Slavia Prague : Preview & Prediction
Unbeaten in European competitions so far this season (G6, E4), Copenhague , co-leader of the group with a point more than his rival in this third day, will seek to maintain that impressive run when he receives Slavia Praga for the first time in the history.
The Copenhague has been a difficult place for any visiting team, as the last European defeat in Copenhagen came into the hands of Atletico Madrid during the rounds of direct elimination of this same tournament last season.
Even the scoring of goals has also been notoriously difficult for the rival teams in this venue in the previous matches of the Europa League (EL) during the group stage. In fact, the 1-1 draw in Copenhagen with Zenit on the first day of this season ended with a streak of six consecutive games in the group stage at home where he did not receive goals.
This match may be an uphill battle for the Czech Cup winner, Slavia, since they have only won one of their 23 previous matches (G1, E10, P12) in European competitions, conceding two or more goals in five of his last seven duels.
In recent games, scoring the first goal has been key for Slavia. In each of the last five victories outside the team (in all competitions), they have been winning at rest.
Players to watch: The winger Robert Skov is in a great moment of form, having scored in his last five club matches, including the winning goal in the 2-1 win over Bordeaux. Slavia Miroslav Stoch is also in good shape if we refer to scoring goals and is that has scored in the last three games at the local level of his team.
Statistics to consider: Only one of the last five victories at home in Copenhagen (in all competitions) has been leaving his goal unbeaten.
In all competitions, Copenhague has scored in eight of his last ten away games.
The historical record of Copenhagen against rivals of Czech Rep. Indicates G4, E3, P5.
