Venue: Parken Stadium (Copenhagen).
Since it is the semifinal round, the tension will be high at both ends, but the home team is likely to be the one to keep their cool in the middle. In the quarterfinal, they were on the road and defeated Goteborg with a 1-2 scoreline.
They will host on the back of a 1-2 loss at home against Brondby in the Superliga last time out in the schedule.
Pias Gliwice had only two wins in their last five clashes across all major competitions. Significantly, both these wins came in the EL fixtures of their schedule. They had a 3-2 home win against Hartberg in the quarterfinal of the Europa qualifiers this term.

The teams haven’t met before in recent times.
FC Copenhagen vs Piast Gliwice Prediction
The match is sizing to be a tight encounter and the home team seems to be the favorites to win. The reason to back that is that the teams haven’t met in a h2h encounter before. This will put both teams in a slow pace to determine each other’s play in the middle.
FC Copenhagen enjoys the home ground advantage in the game. The host has lost three of the recent eight home matches in their schedule and has scored over three goals in only one of those fixtures in the records. Hence, the match is likely to feature a low-scoring affair, which is why the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
Furthermore, the home win in full-time will probably serve the purpose to yield decent returns for the punters in the encounter. The reason to back for the home team is their home ground advantage and league supremacy over the visitors.
