Qarabag – FC Copenhagen: Preview & Prediction
What has happened to Copenhagen? From brutal dominance in the Danish subdivision and a successful European tour last year, to now only scraping six sticks on five games in the series, and with a big move here in the CL qualification.
Major deficiencies were demonstrated against both Slovak Zilina and Macedonian Vardar Skopje, where they won with 4-3 and 4-2 over 180 minutes respectively.
At home in Azerbaijan, Qarabag dominates fully and with the four straight-winning serial titles they have accumulated a lot of experience from European games – and with good luck, based on what may be required. Denne kvalsejour has Samtredia shattered 6-0 and the Moldovan Sheriff was defeated by 2-1.
Otherwise, Qarabag has just started the domestic game year and that with a stable 3-1 win over Neftci. Nice to get on the right track right away – a boost for self-esteem for this fateful meeting. A big money sign and the Champions League group playground are in the pot!
Advantage of Qarabag
The fact that Copenhagen will be favorites over 180 minutes – with home and away meetings – obviously does not have the slightest hesitation. On the other hand, we are hard at seeing them able to deliver a win over here and thus look elsewhere for game value.
All player losses have been shown to be hard on the Danes. Unexpected results in Superliga have been wrecked with doubtful achievements here in the CL qualification. Zilina was scary close to chopping it against and away from Vardar, before the numbers could be reversed at home. And how will it be when the level is raised yet another snap? It will not be easier either with the defense clamp Erik Johansson injured.
In recent years, Qarabag has proven to be difficult to deal with. For example, none of the nine latest CL qualifying matches have been lost and at home they have avoided cod against clubs like Celtic, Salzburg and Viktoria Plzen.
It’s going to be slow, but Copenhagen will probably be happy with the draw at its best.
Qarabag to win the money back by draw – draw no bet – appears at 1.74 times the money at 10bet.
