Torino vs Copenhagen by Enzo
Torino didn't impress a lot in the first round opener in Europa League, as they held Club Brugge to a goalless draw. Teams were close to equal, but the Belgium side were a bit more active and have created more chances, however it could be said that the final result was rather fair.
Team is having mediocre start in Serie A as well, as the team has one victory, two draws and two defeats for now. They are coming from a 1:1 draw at home against Fiorentina, in a game where the visitors were entitled for something more on Saturday evening. Midfielder Farnerud isn't eligible to play, while injured remain midfielder Nocerino who is on loan from AC Milan and Brazilian striker Barreto. Goalkeeper Gillet should be between the posts, having 3-5-2 formation in front of himself.
Copenhagen took a professional 2:0 home victory over Helsinki in the first round and in case of a positive result here, they would surely step up as hot candidate for first two positions. Despite a sluggish start in first halftime, Danish side proved all their quality in the repetition.
Jorgensen have scored both goals for Copenhagen, while the final result could have been even with a higher margin, with the hosts missing some classic chances, including a penalty miss from Cornelius in 62nd minute. It seems that their overall form is improving after a bad start in the season, with the team currently being fifth at the table coming from rock bottom previously. Regular defender Nilsson is out for this game, while midfielder Remmer (2/0) will also be sidelined for this game, but without being important part of the team early in the season.
Torino is a favorite here, but having in mind their lack of experience in Europe and their problems scoring, there is not much fact supporting current odds for the home win. Copenhagen might not get a victory here, but they are surely quality enough to get a point.
