The New Saints vs FC Copenhagen
Champions League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 23 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Park Hall (Oswestry).
The Saints will have to put on a miracle on display if they are to go through to the next round against this Danish opposition. It’s true that TNS took the crown in their league the last season, and are the favorites to repeat the feat this time around too.
But, even with home advantage, it’s asking too much from them, to deal with the comparatively hugely talented roster on the other side.
Also, Copenhagen has shown their ability to deal with nerves and to raise their game once it matters, in the last campaign. They had finished just one point above nearest competitor Midtjylland after the regular phase was over, but once the playoffs began, they shifted gears, and by the end, the team boasted of an 11-point lead at the top.
They had also recorded the best returns in almost all of the major stats.

TNS vs FC Copenhagen Prediction
The Danish opposition really had blasted away competitors on their way to the title, and compared to that, the Saints are not that much of a threat. Also, the Superliga is a vastly superior competition to that of the Welsh Premier League.
Copenhagen is eager to pick things up from they left the last time around and recorded an away win in their first match-day itself, against touch customer Odense. They had also recorded eight wins from their last eleven official games and was unbeaten in 14 of their last 17 official fixtures on the road.
Despite the support of the crowd, and their form the Saints are in (which will not play a major role, the reason being the quality of oppositions they are accustomed to), count on the visitors to record a win at the Park Hall.
