Celtic vs FC Copenhagen
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 27 February 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow
Despite the domination and high number of chances created, Celtic FC were not victorious last week in Denmark. The first leg match of Europa League playoffs against Copenhagen FC ended without a winner 1-1, but still the Bhoys are massive favourites to advance to the next round.
Their opponents are struggling to stay in the title race when it comes to Superligaen, being unable to play on a high level for a couple of weeks. Copenhagen are regarded as big underdogs for this clash and for a good reason.
Celtic vs FC Copenhagen Head-to-head
If we exclude this year’s campaign, Celtic and Copenhagen have met only twice in the past.
Those duels happened back in 2006 UEFA Champions League. Both teams were victorious in front of the home crowd. Celtic won home turf encounter 1-0 and lost 3-1 in Denmark.
Last week’s match saw an early goal scored by Odsonne Edouard, while the final 1-1 result was set by Copenhagen’s striker Dame N’Doye in the second half.
Celtic vs FC Copenhagen Prediction
FC Copenhagen have failed to win an important match during the last weekend. They faced Silkeborg on the road and barely got away with a draw. That was fifth consecutive match across all competitions without victory. Midtjylland are now nine points away after 22 rounds, which means very low chances for the Lions to battle for the title.
Neil Lennon’s side doesn’t have such problems. They are dominating the Premiership, having won eight duels in a row. Offensive line is doing tremendous lifting, scoring more than three goals in average in 2020 so far.
Quality and consistency are definitely on Celtic’s side going into this clash. We are recommending home victory at 1.44 as one of the biggest Europa League banker bets this Thursday. As for the alternative, Celtic to keep a clean sheet at 1.72 seems like a decent option.
