FC Copenhagen vs Slovan Bratislava: prediction for the Conference League fixture
FC Copenhagen are set to host Slovan Bratislava on Thursday, December 9 in their final group match of the Europa Conference League. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
FC Copenhagen have already booked their ticket to the knockout round. They are guaranteed to finish first in Group F, so they have nothing to worry about in the last game. FC Copenhagen suffered a defeat to the Greek PAOK (1:2) and won the other 4 matches in the Conference League.
The hosts are 2nd in the Danish Superliga with 33 points. In the last round, they prevailed over AaB Fodbold (3:1).
Slovan Bratislava are in fantastic form and recorded victories in 12 of the last 13 games. Slovan are 2nd in Group F, level with PAOK on 8 points, and today they will be fighting for the second knockouts berth. The Slovaks must win here to keep the 2nd line to themselves.
Slovan are dominating in the Slovak Super Liga. Last week, they cruised to victory over Zlate Moravce (2:1).
FC Copenhagen conceded in 4 out of 5 Conference League games.
The hosts scored 7 goals in 2 matches.
This score was recorded in 2out of 10 home games of FC Copenhagen.
We expect both sides to score in the upcoming game. The Slovaks need all three points to have a chance to qualify, so they will obviously go forward and attack the hosts' defenses. The Danes usually play open football at home, and we think they will also net at least one goal.
Our prediction - both to score
We are predicting a victory for the FC Copenhagen. Slovan are the weaker side, and we think they won't be able to earn points here.
Second wager - Copenhagen to win
