Final early 18:55 CET game of the day. Odds are too good to let go here. Turkish team Basaksehir have played 5 consecutive overs and today they are hosting Dannish team FC Kopenhagen.
In Superliga, FC are 2nd behind Midtjylland who are dominating this year with 12 points advantage during the regular season and before the Championship playoff. Recently they had a really exciting game against Aalborg and in that one we saw 5 goals and a 3:2 win for Kopenhagen. Following their 5-goal win over Aalborg, FC lost in the last home round to Horsens in a big schoker. Nobody expected the away win but Ludwig scored in 81st for away win.
Basaksehir are in top form, after winning 4 consecutive league games in Super Lig, they won't lack confidence hosting the Dannish side. This year Basaksehir are also tied for first with Trabzonspor and both are on 52 points, exciting race remains until the end.
Value here lies with early first half goals. Why? Because Bsaksehir are playing Trabzonspor in just 3 days and that's a huge battle for the 1st place in Turkey. I do think that the hosts are favorites and should beat sluggish Kopenhagen, but I expect them to start really aggressively and look for early goals.
They should score early to kill the game, close down the second half and try to keep a clean sheet and focus on Trabzonspor's upcoming most important game of the season for Super Lig top.
I can see this being done already in the first half and something like 2:0 or 2:1 is possible. Value is on goals overall but I'm going for early pair in the first half due to their upcoming clash with Trabzonspor.
