FC Koebenhavn vs Zilina Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Zilina will be looking to overturn a two-goal deficit when they travel to the Telia Parken to take on FC Copenhagen for the second leg of their Champions League second round qualifying tie. Copenhagen looked like they were heading towards an unexpected defeat against Zilina last week as they were one-goal down at halftime following Nikolas Spalek’s strike with just six minutes before the break. However, Zilina’s midfielder Miroslav Kacer saw the second yellow card just after the hour mark and Copenhagen bounced back into the game thanks to a hat-trick from Andrija Pavlovic. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Zilina dominated the first half last week, but they have an extremely difficult job in Denmark. Zilina are forced to attack from the start, so I’m expecting another entertaining affair with goals at both ends of the field. Copenhagen have conceded at least once in four of their last five games across all competitions, while Zilina allowed 16 goals in their last five fixtures.

FC Koebenhavn Preview

FC Copenhagen managed eventually to win their first-leg clash with Zilina last week, but they kicked off their Superliga campaign with a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Aalborg. They took the lead in the 39th minute through Federico Santander, but they conceded the equaliser in the 94th minute. Their recent form hasn’t been good at all as their success over Zilina last week was their sole victory in the last five games across all competitions. On home soil, Copenhagen are currently on a three-game winless streak, but the good news is that they are undefeated in their last six Champions League home fixtures. Overall, Copenhagen have only lost once in their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, Copenhagen made it to the group stages of the Champions League last term, finishing third in the standings, although they have only lost once in six group fixtures. Andrija Pavlovic is definitely a player to watch for Copenhagen after he managed to score a hat-trick last week.

Zilina Preview

Meanwhile, Zilina’s recent form has been awful as they have only won once in their last five games across all competitions. Conceding has been their biggest problem in this term as they allowed at least three goals in four of their last five games. Furthermore, Zilina’s record in the Champions League qualifying over the past seven years has been terrible as they have lost eight of their last nine qualifiers. Away from home, Zilina have only won four of their last 14 games across all competitions and have been thrashed 4-0 by Slavia Prague in a friendly fixture in their most recent trip. Furthermore, Zilina have only scored once in their last four away games in the Champions League. The good news is that their fitness levels are better than Copenhagen’s as they haven’t started their domestic campaign yet. Filip Hoshovsky has been Zilina’s talisman last season as he was Fortuna liga’s topscorer with 20 goals and 12 assists under his belt, but the 29-year-old midfielder joined Seongnam three weeks ago. However, Zilina still have Michal Skvarka within their ranks, as he has been Zilina’s second topscorer last season with 14 goals and twelve assists.

Milos Volesak is out through a knee injury, while Miroslav Kacer is suspended.
