Copenhagen vs Atlético de Madrid – Europa League: Copenhagen and Atlético de Madrid face off this Thursday night in Denmark
On a match counting towards the 1st leg of this Europa League’s round of 32.
Copenhagen occupies the 4th place of the Danish league with 29 points conquered, thanks to a record of 8 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses.
So far, they count with 38 goals scored and 26 goals conceded, which therefore results on an average of 3.2 goals per match.
Their home record is positive, with the team recording 6 wins on the 11 rounds they’ve played in front of their fans.
On this Europa League, Copenhagen has finished in 2nd place of group F with 9 points conquered, not having lost any match at their own stadium.
Atlético Madrid currently sits in 2nd place of La Liga with 52 points conquered, thanks to a record of 15 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss. Their goal ratio counts with 34 goals scored and 9 goals conceded, which means they present an average of 1.9 goals per match.
Their away record is very positive, with the team getting 8 wins in 12 matches played away from home, being therefore the 2nd team with most points conquered in that condition, right behind Barcelona.
The Colchoneros are, in my opinion, one of the strongest contenders to lifting the trophy here, and they come into this competition after having finished in 3rd place of the Champions League’s group C.
Copenhagen vs Atlético de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
There are some aspects that lead me into believing that Atlético will come out victorious of this match in Denmark.
The team led by Diego Simeone comes into this match with more competitive rhythm, since Copenhagen was playing friendlies for practically two months, while their league was on winter break, only having 2 official matches after that period.
Besides that, Atlético de Madrid is in spectacular form, not only in terms of results, with 3 wins on their last 3 matches, but also not having conceded a single goal.
This way, I expect the visiting side to take an advantage to Madrid.
