“Copenhagen” on October 1 will try to get a ticket to the group stage of the Europa League. To do this, the team needs to deal with Rijeka. We offer our forecast for this meeting.
The team from Denmark is entering the season with certain difficulties. This is due to the fact that the team had practically no off-season and the physical condition of some of the players is not the best. “Copenhagen” in the national championship is in the 10th position, having in its asset only one point after three games played.
In the Europa League qualification, Stale Solbakken’s wards outplayed Gothenburg (2: 1) and Piast Gliwice (3: 0).
Last season, the team from Rijeka finished in third position, having received the right to play in the qualification of the Europa League, where they already managed to beat Kolos (2: 0). As part of the Croatian championship, the team is not yet impressive with its results, having six points scored in four games played.
Rijeka’s main problem is the departure of last season’s top scorer Antonio Ciolak. He now plays at PAOK.
Copenhagen have won 5 of their last 10 home games
Rijeka won 3 of their last 10 away matches
Rijeka lost their last two away games with a total margin of 0: 4
Both teams are unstable in their performances, but experience and class speak in favor of the hosts, and also the advantage of the home field factor. We believe that Copenhagen has all the chances to qualify for the group stage of the Europa League.
Rijeka lost their leader, and now it is difficult for the team to score goals. In our opinion, Copenhagen should win through a very good organization of the game and a quality transition from defense to attack.
Our prediction is Copenhagen’s victory. In the Fonbet bookmaker, you can play the current outcome with a coefficient of 1.91.
