Copenhagen vs The New Saints Match Preview
This tie has shaped up exactly how we predicted so far and Copenhagen are expected to see off the challenge of The New Saints with another routine success in the Danish capital.
All three of our recommended bets on the first leg were landed as Copenhagen triumphed 2-0, providing us with winners at odds of 5/1 (Correct Score), 6/4 (Win To Nil) and 19/20 (HT/FT Double Result).
Cyprus international striker Pieros Sotiriou put Copenhagen ahead in the 18th minute and the second goal was scored just after the hour mark from the penalty spot by Robert Skov, the Denmark Under-21 winger who was bowing out on a high note because later in the week he signed for German club Hoffenheim.
Skov will be missed, but his departure is highly unlikely to affect the outcome of this tie because Stale Solbakken’s side have much greater quality in their squad than TNS, the latest addition to their ranks being former Everton and Sunderland left-back Bryan Oviedo.
Solbakken was able to start with the likes of former Manchester United right-back Guillermo Varela and playmaker Viktor Fischer, who spent a season with Middlesbrough in the Premier League, on the bench and still see his side prove far too good for the Welsh champions.
We said it would be quite a respectable performance if TNS could avoid being beaten by three or more goals in Oswestry, which they did, and the same very much applies here.
