Stjarnan will take on FC Copenhagen for a chance to play in the 3rd round qualifying of the Europa League.
Stjarnan hailing from Iceland have to share their playing time with a multi tude of different sports and their calendar year is always packed. They will be hoping that the long distance travelled by FC Copenhagen can swing this game in their favour.
As far as betting goes for the game the bookmakers have the home side as the underdogs which feels right given that they have rarely won the big games to qualify for the major tournaments. Stjarnan can be backed at 4.50 to win this home game 1st leg. FC Copenhagen have been made the odds on favourites at 1.80 which still represents good value for us.

Stjarnan vs Copenhagen: Prediction
We must remember that Stjarnan are amateurs when it comes to FC Copenhagen. It is true that this Copenhagen side are not the same as the past but it was only a 5 years ago that the team were playing in the Champions League and qualified from a group containing Barcelona. They reached the last 16 and were then defeated and knocked out by Chelsea.
The odds on the away side winning here are too tempting to not go for. The only disadvantage will be the travelling time they would have had to face. But if the team can get a few away goals here they will make life easier on themselves in the 2nd leg in Denmark, are bet for medium stakes is the away team to win.
