Goteborg vs Copenhagen
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 17 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi.
Both teams have been experiencing difficulties in showing any consistency lately, and the major reason would be the problems at the back.
Defense has not at all been up to the mark that’s required for a top flight club – for either of these teams.
In fact, the Angels finished seventh in the Swedish Allsvenskan the last year, and if not for their triumph in the Svenska Cupen, they would not have even made it to these qualifying fixtures.
Meanwhile the Lions, who were favorites to lift the Danish title, lost it to Midtjylland. The former had finished second in the table, nine points below the champions.
Considering the off-performances by the defense from both sides week in, week out, along with the high pressure involved due to European qualification being on the line, expect goals from both teams this Thursday.

Goteborg vs Copenhagen: Prediction
Roland Nillson’s men were winless in 19 of their previous 21 overall matches, and had conceded two or more goals in three of their former five games. At home, they had lost their latest fixture 0-4, and had failed to keep a clean sheet here in 16 of their last 18 appearances.
In fact, they had let in a total of 12 goals from their preceding four fixtures at this stadium. On the other hand, the Lions were winless in ten of their former thirteen games, and had lost seven of their former twelve matches.
They had also conceded a total of eight goals from their last three fixtures alone. And on top of all that, every single face-to-face encounter so far between these two teams has had goals from both sides.
Coupling all these information along with the nerves associated with a qualification clash, expect a high-scoring game this Thursday.
