KuPS vs Copenhagen
UEFA Europa League Qualifiers
Date: Thursday, 12 July 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Savon Sanomat Areena (Kuopio).
In the Scandinavian clash in the first round of Europa League qualifiers, Finnish side KuPS are going to face Copenhagen.
The hosts are enjoying a decent campaign as they are sitting on the 4th spot of the domestic championship. However, their form is not so good lately as they have celebrated just one victory in the last five matches.
Rasmus Karjalainen and the lads have been fairly productive this season, while their defence is not too tight. Although KuPS suffered just two home defeats, they have been involved in a lot of draws when playing in front of their fans.
Copenhagen are starting their campaign with this clash and they want to be more successful in the European cups than in the last season. They have improved their game in the very finish of the season and secured their place in the Europa League qualifiers.
Stale Solbaken’s side did very well in front of the oppositions’ goal, however their defending was pretty poor for the club of such reputation. .
KuPS v Copenhagen: Head-to-head
This is going to be the first head to head clash of these two sides. KuPS faced Danish clubs twice and were partially successful, while Copenhagen managed to eliminate Finnish teams every time in their four encounters.
KuPS v Copenhagen: Prediction
The visitors are strong favourites in this tie and they should be able to secure the advantage already in the first half. Although the hosts are in the middle of their campaign, Copenhagen want to have a successful campaign and reach the group stage.
Since the hosts have been involved in a lot of high scoring clashes this season, while away side has been very productive, the crowd should be able to enjoy another efficient clash. In this one, we should be able to see at least three goals.
