Copenhagen hosts Galatasaray in a do-or-die game in the Champions League group stage

The Istanbul giants need to win in Denmark to qualify for second place.

Copenhagen’s Danish football officials gave them a week off in their domestic divisions to prepare, but their shocking 2-1 home loss to Aathaus last week barely felt like a warm-up. Furthermore, they are merely third in the league.

Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, their fierce rivals, are tied for the championship with 14 points apiece. They were given more time to prepare for their journey to Denmark by moving their game forward to Friday night, and they triumphed 3-1 at home against Adana Demirspor.

Kick-off time: Tuesday, 12 December 2023 at 8:00 PM (GMT); Wednesday, 13 December 2023 at 1:30 PM (IST)

Injuries and players news

Jacob Neestrup, the manager of FC Copenhagen, has announced that Khouma Babacar (unknown injury), William Clem (broken foot), Davit Khocholava (knee issues), and Birger Meling (muscle fibre rupture) will not participate.

Cimbom, in our opinion, is probably going to start with a 4-2-3-1 lineup and settle for N. Fernando Muslera, Sacha Boey, Victor Nelsson, Kaan Ayhan, Kazimcan Karatas, Sérgio Oliveira, Lucas Torreira, Tetê, Hakim Ziyech, Kerem Aktürkoglu and Mauro Icardi.

Predicted lineup

FC Copenhagen (predicted lineup): Kamil Grabara, Elias Jelert, Denis Vavro, Kevin Diks, Nicolai Boilesen, Lukas Lerager, Rasmus Falk Jensen, Diogo Gonçalves, Roony Bardghji, Viktor Claesson, Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Galatasaray (predicted lineup): Néstor Fernando Muslera, Sacha Boey, Victor Nelsson, Kaan Ayhan, Kazimcan Karatas, Sérgio Oliveira, Lucas Torreira, Tetê, Hakim Ziyech, Kerem Aktürkoglu, Mauro Icardi.

Prediction of Copenhagen vs Galatasaray

We believe that Galatasaray can convert a significant number of opportunities to score goals.

FC Copenhagen will also have difficulty finding the back of the net, yet we believe they have a chance to win this match as well.

As a result, Galatasaray has a commanding 1-3 lead after the game.
