FC Copenhagen vs Zilina
UEFA Champions League 2017/18 – Second qualifying round
Date: Wednesday, 19th July 2017
Kick-off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Telia Parken, Copenhagen.
FC Copenhagen will face the tight schedule in the upcoming weeks since Danish Superliga just started. They did most of the job in the first leg in Slovakia, so FCK just need to confirm their solid first leg and qualify for the next round.
The Danish brought a very satisfying result from Slovakia. Three away goals are extremely worthy when away goals rule applies, so they will have to concede at least three in order to get knocked out by Zilina. Unquestionably, they are in the excellent position to seal the spot in the next qualifying round.
Copenhagen hosted Aalborg in the opening round of Superliga however, they failed to register the whole prize as Aalborg snatch a point in the 1-1 draw.
Despite the early lead in the first half, Zilina collapsed in the later stages of the matches which significantly decreased their chances for a comeback in Denmark. They had no obligations in the domestic league unlike FCK, so fitness levels will be slightly in their favor, but on the other hand, they have a long trip to travel.
FC Copenhagen vs Zilina: Head-to-head
The first leg was a typical game of the two halves. In the first, the Slovakian team dominated and they had a positive result on the half-time. The crucial moment of the match was red card shown to Kacer. With only 10 men, Zilina completely disintegrated which allowed Pavlovic to score a life-saving hat-trick for Copenhagen.
FC Copenhagen vs Zilina: Prediction
Zilina have an extremely difficult job in Denmark. The atmosphere at Telia Parken is unbearable and the Slovakian side is likely to break once again under the pressure. They must attack from the start so they will be vulnerable therefore, they could ship another three on Wednesday.
