Leicester City vs FC Copenhagen: Preview and Prediction
Leicester City vs FC Copenhagen
UEFA Champions League – Group G
Date: Tuesday, 18th September, 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester.
Leicester City are currently enjoying an excellent form in the group Stage of the Champions League, winning their first 2 games. They will be hosting FC Copenhagen on Tuesday night as they look forward to another Champions League win.
Leicester City’s Premier League form haven’t been rosy, they will enter this game from a 3-0 thrashing from Conte’s Chelsea. Goals from Diego Costa in the 7th minute, Eden Hazard in the 33rd minute and V. Mosses in the 80th minute was enough to hand Leicester City the huge defeat.
Meanwhile, Copenhagen have been in a good form since the beginning of the season, they are on top of their local league. Also they are currently second in the group G of the Champion league with 4 points.
Leicester City vs FC Copenhagen: Head to Head Statistics
Both teams have not played against each other in the past, thus this will be their first meeting against each other.
At the same time, FC Copenhagen haven’t had the best of results when coming up against Premier League clubs. They managed just 1 win from 8 meetings, while the rest 7 matches saw 3 draws and 4 defeats.
Leicester City vs FC Copenhagen: Prediction
Leicester City have been on a very poor form in recent weeks, their defense have also been in a very bad shape. Their last 5 games have recorded 3 heavy defeats, a hard fought win and a goalless draw. They have failed to score in their last 2 games, and gave conceded at least 3 goals in 3 of their last 5 games.
Copenhagen are rolling high in recent weeks, they are unbeaten in their last 5 games with 3wins and 2 draws. They have kept clean sheets in their last 4 games, and have scored at least 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 games.
Despite Leicester’s poor form and their huge loss over the weekend, it’ll be hard to see them lose in this fixture. Nevertheless, they need to concentrate more on their defence to avoid losing this one. I think the game will likely end in draw.
Leicester City vs FC Copenhagen: Tips
- HT draw at 2.20 (6/5)
- Under 2.5 goals at 1.73 (8/11).
