Zlin vs Copenhagen: Preview and Predictions

Zlin vs Copenhagen
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Andruv Stadion (Olomouc).

Copenhagen are yet to produce in the final third after opening two days of their Europa League campaign.

The Dane champions will finally get a nice opportunity to get the breakthrough and pick up their first win in the competition this Thursday when they travel to Olomouc to take on Zlin at Andruv Stadion.

Zlin

Bohumil Panik’s men have been going through a tough period at the start of the new season mainly thanks to the lack of the solidness in the defensive line which has been way too easy to break down.

Zlin’s defensive holes were exploited to the max in the first half of the clash with Lokomotiv Moscow who notched three easy goals to seal their way to the first win of the campaign and to leave the Czech at the rock-bottom of the Group F standings.

The hosts will, however, come into the third-round tie with an improved confidence after beating Pisek and Vysocina Jihlava in last two outings in all competitions.

This can’t be said for the visitors whose title defense quest has not been going quite well so far.

Stale Solbakken’s side lost two on the bounce to drop down to the sixth position in the Superligaen standings and another failure in the European competition would further shake their confidence.

Zlin vs Copenhagen: Head to head

This will be the first time for these two likes to take on each other.

Zlin vs Copenhagen: Prediction

Copenhagen scored only a single time in last three outings in all competitions and we can see them struggling to break the deadlock against motivated Zlin side here.

We’d actually not be surprised to witness yet another low-scoring affair similar to the one both sides had in the first round.

Zlin vs Copenhagen: Bets

The main betting prediction is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.60.

Braver tipsters can go for the goalless draw at 8.50.
