FC Copenhagen vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Wednesday, 2 November 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Parken Stadium.
Copenhagen are already eliminated from the competition, and they could not even settle for the third-place – which would have helped them make it to the Europa. Meanwhile, Dortmund made sure of a second-place finish, and thus will make it to the Round of 16 as runners-up.
Group G has turned out to be an anticlimactic flop in the Champions League. Despite some titans in the mix, all positions are already confirmed before the last match-day in the group stage. Perhaps that’s the price one must pay to have Manchester City alongside.
Der BVB have nothing extra to gain by employing their best eleven this Wednesday, and that too against the whipping boys of the group. Still they are one of the best teams in Europe, and even their reserves would be far better than any team from the lower domestic leagues in Europe.
Only once did BVB lost a fixture in the current edition of the CL, and that defeat expectedly came against Manchester City. Disregarding the Citizens, the Germans scored the most number of goals, and conceded the least as well.
Meanwhile, not only did Copenhagen remained winless throughout the campaign so far, but they conceded the most number of goals in the group too. And to add insult to injury, they are yet to find the back of the net in any match-up.
Moreover, they have a poor h2h record against this rival too.
Surely expect a win for Borussia Dortmund this Wednesday.

FC Copenhagen vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction & Analysis
Copenhagen will now want to turn their attention towards their domestic league, as honestly there is no point in even turning up for this fixture.
BVB are firm favorites here, even without their best eleven. They will possibly consider this match-up as a great training exercise before they start their knockout campaign.
Expect a win for the Germans this Wednesday. Do also count on them to keep a clean sheet against the rather poor offense of Copenhagen.
