Copenhagen v Celtic Preview And Betting Tips – Europa League Round Of 32, 1st Leg

With Celtic 10-points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, Neil Lennon and his team can give their full attention to the Europa League and their first leg round of 32 clash with Copenhagen in Denmark on Thursday night. Tipsters Form Labs guide you to where the value might lie for the game, while we have all the odds for the Europa League action available on our sportsbook.





Recent Form

Copenhagen don’t normally reach the knockouts with this just the third time in nine season’s they’ve made it this far.

They benefited from a kind group that featured Malmo, Dynamo Kiev and Lugano, qualifying in second place, whereas Celtic faced more challenging assignments as they were pitted against Lazio, Rennes and CFR Cluj.

Defeat to the latter when fielding a second-string side was the only game Neil Lennon’s charges lost, having already won four of the previous five group stage fixtures to top the standings. Even including that result, the Hoops have still won 25 of 27 matches now since the October international break.

It’s understandable why they start as favourites then, even away from home where results in Europe haven’t been so encouraging in recent years.

There’s been an improvement this time around though, as they thrashed Swedish side AIK Solna 4-1 in Stokholm during the play-offs and downed Lazio 2-1 in Rome, with that latter result completing an impressive double over le Aquile.

Although Italian sides don’t typically take this tournament as seriously as others, Simeone Inzaghi’s outfit are currently Juventus’ nearest challengers in Serie A and they sit just one point adrift after beating title rivals Inter this weekend.

Celtic To Win To Nil

Celtic may have racked up 27 goals in eight games, netting at least three times in all but one of these, but Copenhagen are a generally a cut above their domestic rivals and should be expected to put up a much closer fight.

The Danish outfit’s European encounters rarely exceed two match goals with 21 of 26 since the start of last season failing to breach that threshold, while excluding qualifying and play-off rounds, 11 from 12 over this period have witnessed under 2.5 goals land as seven saw just the solitary strike or none whatsoever.

Team news also dictates that it’s worth getting behind the Hoops. Whereas Celtic possess nearly a clean bill of health, Copenhagen are without long-term absentees Nicolai Boilesen (LB), Robert Mudrazija (CM) and Jonas Wind (ST), while more importantly they’ll also have to make do without Viktor Fischer (LW).

The 25-year-old is a massive loss, with his nine assists this season leaving him with more than double the next best at the club.

In his absence, Copenhagen have just slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Esbjerg – second from bottom in the Superliga – with centre-back pairing Andreas Bjelland and Sotirios Papagiannopoulos looking particularly vulnerable.
