FC Copenhagen vs Lugano
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Telia Parken (Copenhagen).
Despite the impressive start that FC Copenhagen got off to, the hosts are currently on a three-match losing streak across multiple competitions. The last two clashes for the home team, which were on the road, saw them admit defeat to Aalborg and Hobro, albeit by a narrow one-goal margin.
Apart from an opening day victory, Lugano are on an even more disappointing run back in their respective domestic league and have not been able to taste success in any of their previous six games. The visitors are just one spot away from hitting rock bottom in the table and have lost without even finding the back of the net on two occasions as well.
With a run of form this poor, the Swiss outfit have little or no chance of taking out FC Copenhagen this week, that too in their own backyard.

FC Copenhagen vs Lugano Prediction
The hosts have been on the road for the last three weeks in a row and can finally let out a sigh of relief as they are back in the comforts of their home this Thursday. On home soil, Copenhagen have been able to deliver a much more convincing performance and have been at the losing end just once in their last fourteen games here.
Furthermore, the hosts have found the back of the net ten times from their previous five clashes alone and have conceded no more than thrice in the process as well.
On the other hand, Lugano have just two wins to boast of from their last ten outings and will be making the trip to Telia Parken on the back of three consecutive defeats.
Considering that the away side are also part of a league that is much lower in status, the bragging rights are more than likely to swing in favor of FC Copenhagen in their maiden meeting.
Five of the last eight goals for the hosts have come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game. Taking into account that seven of their previous ten at home have also found the back of the net during that time frame, count on Copenhagen to breach their foes post the restart in this one.
