FCK returned from Macedonia after being defeated 1-0 by the only goal in the first 15 minutes of 2nd half. I saw the whole match and it was a great tactical battle between two teams. FCK had to face the enormous pressure from the Vardar's fans from the stands, and also the weather condition difficulty. They could not present the best possible squad at the moment, and even with the full squad they are still very far from their best last season. Therefore, they tried to play in a safe manner and I think they really wanted to come back Denmark with a draw.
Home team Vardar had a typical game of every small teams when playing in front of home fans, that was a pressing tactic and try to attack all the time. Actually, I don't appreciate the way that they use to attack because that was very natural and they didn't make so many "real chances", almost of their chances came from long-range shot and lacked a lot of precision. The only goal they scored coming from a pretty lucky situation when the ball touched the FCK's defender and go the position of Balotelli Jonathan. Anyway, it was totally worthy of their effort. In the last 20 minutes FCK had any good chances to equalize the score but Vardar's goalkeeper had done his work.
Coming back from Macedonia, FCK continued to disappoint their fan by a goalless draw against newcomer Hobro. However I don't see that is a big problem, that means all of their coaching staff and players are thinking about the big fight against Vardar at Wednesday night.
Let's talk about any possible changes in FCK squad tomorrow. In fact, I can not see any positive change from their actual squad because they don't have so much choice in the bench right now. Maybe Thomsen will replace Boilesen to play in the rightback due to his injury.
So the thing I want to emphasize here is the fact that FCK is still much stronger than Vardar and they have a "winning culture" at home stadium Telia Park. Another thing to be noticed that Vardar had probably shown all of their best in the last 3 games including 2 games against Malmo, this team has nothing to be compared to FCK without the spirit. So as FCK back Pierre Bengtsson said "FC Copenhagen's will not attack headlessly in Wednesday's CL qualifying match against FK Vardar, but believes that patience is the way to success."
Absolutely I don't believe anymore surprise will be produced after the 90 minutes. Not a big win but a minimum score 2-0 to go through is not expected to be realized.
