Copenhagen vs Bordeaux
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 133 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: FC Copenhagen trainingslaeg Nummer 10 (Frederiksberg).
The second berth in Group C is at stake on Thursday night when Copenhagen host Bordeaux on the Matchday No 6. Nonetheless, both teams will be desperate to see group winners Zenit beat Slavia Prague on the road simultaneously in the other game in the group. If Slavia get away with a draw or win in that match, both Copenhagen and Bordeaux are out regardless of the outcome of their tie on the Danish soil.
Both teams will enter the game high on confidence following their string set of performances in domestic leagues respectively of late. Stale Solbakken’s troops preserved a three-point cushion at the very top of the Superligaen standings with another impressive attacking showing at the weekend. They saw off 6th-placed Esbjerg 3-0 at Telia Parken with a penalty-kick brace from right-winger Robert Skov. The Danes have been flying high recently in Superligaen. They won three on the trot netting as many as 11 goals in the process.
Copenhagen vs Bordeaux: Head-to-head
The first ever head to head meeting between these two likes ended in a narrow 1-2 victory for Copenhagen away at Stade Matmut-Atlantique on the Matchday No 2.
It was the only victory for the Danes so far in the competition.
Robert Skov bagged the late match-winner in the second minute of the added time.
Copenhagen vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Les Giriondins started the Ligue 1 campaign in a somewhat slower fashion, but their form has seen a massive rise of late. They were the first French team to hold PSG to a draw (2-2 at Stade Matmut-Atlantique at the start of the month), while they backed up such success with a fine 3-2 victory over Saint-Etienne eight days ago.
The game can honestly go either way which is why backing goals looks to be a much wiser option. You can have BTTS bet at the sky-high 1.80 odds here.
