Sheriff vs Copenhagen
UEFA Europa League
Date: 28th September 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena.
Sheriff deserved to get three points in the first round when they controlled the pitch against Zlin, but the Czechs somehow managed to keep it goalless until the end.
The Moldovan champions will have a much harder task in the second round when they host the in-form Copenhagen side in what is expected to be a very interesting fixture at Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena.
The Italian manager Roberto Bordin can be satisfied with his team’s attacking form since Sheriff notched as many as six goals past Dacia in the Moldovan Divizia Nationala derby on Saturday afternoon.
Both Jairo and Josip Brezovec produced phenomenal displays contributing to the victory with hat-tricks and they will clearly be the main threat to Copenhagen’s goal on Thursday evening.
However, Bordin’s defensive line will have to be at their best if Sheriff wants to get a positive result here given Copenhagen’s impressive attacking form in the last couple of weeks.
The Dane champions got off to a somewhat of a slower start to the new Superligaen campaign, but Stale Solbakken’s men picked up three wins on the trot (11-0 goal difference) to narrow the gap to only two points behind Nordsjaelland at the top of the standings.
