KuPS vs FC Copenhagen Prediction & Betting tips
KuPS Kuopio and FC Copenhagen meet in Savon Sanomat Areena, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Europa League (1st Qualifying Round). This will be the first direct confrontation between these two teams, as they have never faced each other before. The FC Copenhagen presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor, so in this game the home factor may be decisive.
The home team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of taking advantage of the home advantage to achieve a positive result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 36 goals scored and 19 conceded. The team comes to this match after a win away with Inter Turku by (0-1). In the last 10 home matches Kuops Kuopio has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2. Defensive consistency has not been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 10 times and only managed 3 comebacks.
The KuPS is back to the Europa League, after some missing editions, and knows that it will be very difficult to achieve something very positive, since it has gone through difficulties in previous editions of the competition. On the other hand, the desire is not to disappoint the fans and will fight a lot to at least not be eliminated early, so he certainly wants a good result in this match. The victory is ideal, because the great decision will be in the domains of his opponent, so it is clear that the advantage is essential at the end of this game.
The visiting team will make its debut in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of conquering a positive result, taking advantage of the home factor. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. In the last match they played, for the Friendlies, they won against CSKA Moscow by (1-4). In the last 10 away matches FC Copenhagen has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches.
In the Champions League or the Europa League, no doubt we often see Copenhagen and this time it will not be different, but it will start its campaign only in the first qualifying round. Of course the visiting team has great potential to reach the group stage and will fight for that, so in both games you want good results, also, it does not occur to him to be eliminated so early. In the field the expectation is that he can play well and not make mistakes, so as not to take the risk of being surprised.
