Astra Giurgiu has been only gaining their form that’s why they do not show consistent performance right now. Although the visitors managed to win Romanian Super Cup as they beat Cluj 1:0, but they suffered bitter 1:4 home defeat from Dinamo Bucharest and failed to beat Copenhagen in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round. It seems it’s extremely hard for Astra’s players to turn in quality performance right now, which should be a serious problem for Marius Șumudică. Now they are to play Copenhagen on the road where they have to score at least once.
First match showed Danish side were in better shape and they were superior to their opponents even on the road. Moreover, Scandinavian clubs tend to play way better at home ground, so the visitors are very unlikely to create serious problems to the hosts. We expect Copenhagen to proceed to the playoff round.
Prediction for the match: Copenhagen to win.
