Dnipro vs Copenhagen by Peter

Dnipro
VS
Copenhagen
First leg of the third qualifying round of the Champions League. Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk is receiving the visit of FC Copenhagen.

 

Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk didn't played in the second qualifying round and they just started to play in the championship, in this weekend they won at Metalurg Donetsk with 2-0. They lost some important players like Giuliano (24 years, attacking midfield), Oleksandr Gladky (26 years, centre forward) and Ruslan Rotan (32 years, central midfield) but they have a valuable team.

 

FC Copenhagen didn't played in the second qualifying round but they played 2 matches in the championship, they made an 0-0 at Silkeborg IF and in the weekend they won at home 2-1 against FC Nordsjaelland. They sold their centre forward Igor Vetokele (35 appearances, 15 goals and 2 assists in the last season) but they transferred some new players like centre forward Steve de Ridder (36 appearances, 12 goals and 6 assists in the last season for FC Utrecht), centre back Per Nilsson (21 appearances and 5 goals in the last season for 1.FC Nuremberg) and keeper Stephan Andersen (in the last season played for Real Betis Balompié and for Go Ahead Eagles Deventer). They have some injuries like Rúrik Gíslason (26 years, right wing) and Kris Stadsgaard (28 years, centre back).

 

In my opinion Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk has the force to beat FC Copenhagen with an easy 3-0 but I belive that FC Copenhagen will score and will end 2-1 or 3-1 for Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

This time your preview is more accurate Peter. Perhaps one should mention FC Copenhagen's most important signing this season in argentine Franco Mussis. A young and powerful offensive midfielder. He could do some damage if played today. We will have to wait and see.

A major fault in your preview though is not mentioning the game has been moved away from Dnipro's home field in Dnipropetrovsk in eastern Ukraine to Kiev in the west. That's something you have to mention as it's hurting Dnipro's advantage significantly.

I dont see FCK scoring today, 1-0 or 2-0 I guess.

0-0 in super boring tactical game, typical FCK.
