Copenhagen, Trabzonspor, to meet for the very first time

FC Copenhagen and Trabzonspor goes head-to-head for the very first time. This will be their first meeting and it is exciting for the fans as they do not know what to expect. Crowned as Superliga champions once again, Copenhagen qualified for the Champions League this year. On the other hand, qualified after winning the Turkish Super Lig.

Coming into this game, the two clubs have different performance. Copenhagen performs poorly after lost two out of their three last games, which is the opposite of Trabzonspor‘s performance. Since the start of the new season, Trabzonspor records perfectly as they won three our of three matches. Copenhagen’s defense hurts them the most despite excelling in other areas. Meanwhile, although Trabzonspor is playing great, the thought of them falling short in the qualifiers of Champions League might hurt them mentally.

It was long ago when Copenhagen last qualified for the group stage of the Champions League after they finished third in their group in the 2016-17 season. Since then, the club dropped to the Europa League, and now the club is ready to prove that they can come back to the group stage of the Champions League. However, if they want to qualify for the group stage, they need to improve their defense as it continuously bring them losses. They lost three out of their first five matches in the league.

Additionally, injuries will hurt the club as Davit Khocholava, Mohammed Daramy, Nicolai Boilesen, Peter Ankersen, and Luther Singh are doubtful for this game. Matthew Ryan, and Kamil Grabara on the other hand are injured and is sure not to play in this game.

Trabzonspor had an amazing season for the Turkish Super Lig because aside from the fact that they were crowned as champions, they also made history. For the first time in 38 years, they finally won the Turkish Super Lig. They started strong in the Champions League qualifiers, and were able to build a very strong momentum from the start. This squad can make another surprise if they will win this match as they have not made the group stage for a decade already.

It was Andreas Cornelius, a former striker from Copenhagen, who leads Trabzonspor. He made an amazing debut with the club, and was able to score 15 league goals during their campaign. However, the squad will miss Edin Visca, and Marek Hamsik, as they are both out indefinitely because of injury.

Prediction:

Trabzonspor (2.5)
Odds: -0.88
