FC Copenhagen hosts Istanbul Basaksehir in the second leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Wednesday, July 5th at Telia Parken (Copenhagen)
Finally, the European Cups are returning to us after a break of almost five months! Congratulations to everyone on this wonderful event! So, Copenhagen was defeated in the first match with a 0:1 score, which is very unpleasant for two-round confrontations. It seems like a deficit of one goal can and should be won back in a home match, but if the Turks scores, they will have some advantage due to the away goal, and the hosts will have to score three times for the final success. Copenhagen understands very well that a conceded goal will be fatal, so they probably will not force events and will prefer, as they say, “to begin at the beginning”. Their defense is quite good, and they can rely on it. Well, if Copenhagen manages to open the scoring, it will certainly close in its box.

The newly minted champion of Turkey, which gained a comfortable advantage in the first match of this confrontation, will definitely play defense first. They have the best defense of the Turkish Super League - they conceded an average of one goal per game, which is very little for a scoring Turkish championship. This figure would have been even better if they had not relaxed at the end of the championship, when they had already secured a comfortable lead over their pursuers. In general, Basaksehir will come to defend the gained advantage and will most likely succeed in this.
The match is very important, and the score is rather unsteady, so neither one nor the other will kick against the pricks. Copenhagen needs to score, but they should not forget about defense, so they will not force events in the attack. Basaksehir will defend its advantage gained in the first match. The coefficient on Under 2.5 goals scored is very tempting, and I would even say that it is significantly overestimated. So I think betting on it is the right decision.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
