FC Copenhagen have made three steps back comparing to the previous season. It is quite difficult to recognize the Danish reigning champion as the team has failed to succeed in three latest matches and lost two back-to-back games to Lyngby 1:3 and Odense 0:1 in the Danish Superliga. “Loverne” occupy just the sixth place in the elite division standings with 18 points earned and 21-15 goal difference after 12 encounters played. The Danes took 0:0 draw in both their battles against Lokomotiv Moscow and Sheriff Tiraspol in terms of the UEFA Europa League. This season FC Copenhagen conducted 11 matches at away grounds and managed to gain four triumphs, one draw and six defeats in them.
The rivals have never met before. By their potential the hosts are stronger than the Czechs, however, at this moment the opponents are seemed to be nearly the same level, besides, the Danes demonstrate weak results on the road. Therefore, I presume that even if the hosting side will fail, the margin will be not more than one goal.
Prediction for the match: Zlin to win with +1.0 Asian handicap.
