Zilina vs FC Koebenhavn Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Zilina and FC Copenhagen will square off at the Stadion Pod Dubnom on Wednesday evening for the first leg of their Champions League second qualifying round. Both teams are lacking official matches and both have struggled throughout their pre-season campaigns. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both sides have struggled throughout their pre-season campaigns and both conceded plenty of goals in this term. Zilina’s home form over the past year has been impressive as they have only lost two of their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. On the flip side, FC Copenhagen have only lost once in their last six Champions League games and they have enjoyed a strong run of form on the road over the past few months. Both sides are capable of scoring goals, but both are struggling at the back at the moment, so I’m expecting an open affair with goals at both ends of the field.

Both teams to score - Yes at 5/6

Zilina Preview

Zilina have endured an amazing Fortuna Liga campaign last term as they won the title with 16 more points than the runners-up Slovan Bratislava. It was their seventh league title in history and the first one over the past five years. However, their pre-season campaign hasn’t been very prolific as they have only won once in their four friendly fixtures. Conceding has been their main issue during this poor run of form, as they allowed at least three goals in three of their four friendlies. This is unusual for Zilina as they have only conceded 25 goals in 30 league outings last season, which was the best defensive record in the division. Although, Zilina managed an incredible tally of 82 goals in the previous Fortuna liga campaign and they have also scored 12 goals in their most recent four friendlies. Michael Skvarka and Filip Hoshovsky have bagged 34 goals and 24 assists between them in Fortuna Liga last season, but the latter joined the South Korean club Seongnam at the beginning of the month. Zilina’s record in Champions League qualifiers over the past seven years has been awful as they have lost seven of their last eight games. However, they can count on their home form ahead of this tie as they have only lost twice in their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions.

Zilina Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Zilina ahead of this tie.

FC Koebenhavn Preview

Meanwhile, FC Copenhagen have won the Superliga title once again last season, which was their eleventh title in the last 16 years. Actually, they did the domestic double as they have also won the Landspokal Cup following a 3-1 win over the league’s runners-up Brondby. However, Copenhagen have endured a disappointing start to their pre-season campaign, losing 2-3 against Partizan and drawing against Sturm Graz and Krasnodar. Furthermore, their away form has also been awful recently as the Danish are winless in four competitive fixtures, conceding three goals in two of these. The good news is that Copenhagen have a rich history in the Champions League and they looked incredibly strong last term. They have only finished third in the group G table, but it has to be said that they have only lost once in their six group fixtures. Furthermore, the Danish side managed to reach the Europa League round of 16 where they were beaten by the Semi-finalist Ajax 3-2 on aggregate. In addition, Copenhagen’s recent away record in the Champions League have seen them lose just once in six games. Andreas Cornelius, which was one of their best strikers, has left the club during this summer transfer window as he joined the Italian side Atalanta for €3.5 million. However, they brought in Pieros Sotiriou for €2.5 million from APOEL Nicosia.
