FC Copenhagen vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction & Betting tips
In Group F, the Danish FC Copenhagen and Russian Lokomotiv Moscow take on each other. On paper the two strongest teams in this group. Who takes the best start?
FC Copenhagen :
The most successful club from Denmark gets the engine but hard going this season. It did not win the Champions League and in its own Superliga it is for the last but seventh with nine points left behind on the leader. Last year it became the twelfth time champion and was eliminated in the Europa League in the knockout phase by later winner Ajax.
Copenhagen was thus surprisingly eliminated in the final league of the Champions League. In the mutual match with Qarabag from Azerbaijan, it lost the number of goals scored on displacement. A dump for the Danes because they had counted on winnings against this smaller opponent.
There was a lot of players. Twelve players left the club, eleven came to strengthen. The biggest loss is midfielder Thomas Delaney and top scorer Andreas Cornelius. Trainer Stale Solbakken was pleased with the lottery and sees a good opportunity for Copenhagen to push: “If you see what major European teams miss the group stage then you know how hard it is to reach the group stage. We look forward to testing ourselves back in Europe. ”
Lokomotiv Moscow had to get his seventh cup in the air last season. As a reward it may take place in the Europa League. In any case, the ambition is to do better than two seasons when it reached the sixteenth finals. In the national competition, it is second to none after eight matches and can be the only leader of Zenit.
The club from the capital has strengthened itself with players from their own league. Thus, the experienced attacker Ari crossed from Krasnodar. In addition, it strengthened with the Portuguese hero of the European Championship in France, Eder.
Lokomotiv is a team with a lot of experience. Most players are around the age of thirty years and already have a good career. In the defense, Kroat plays Vedran Corluka, in the middle of the center runs Rus Igor Denisov and in the attack there is another third with the Peruvian Jefferson Farfán in addition to the two newcomers. Because of this experience, it is a very difficult to play team and they are especially organizationally strong.
