Team News: FC Nordsjælland
The FC Nordsjælland boss Johannes Thorup will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game with a completely injury-free group available to select from.
It’s our opinion that Tigrene may well go for a 4-3-3 system this time, utilising Andreas Hansen, Oliver Villadsen, Adamo Nagalo, Kian Hansen, Martin Frese, Daniel Svensson, Jeppe Tverskov, Mohammed Diomande, Ibrahim Osman, Marcus Ingvartsen and Andreas Schjelderup.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the FC Copenhagen gaffer Jacob Neestrup to contend with. Davit Khocholava (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
We believe FCK might play in a 4-3-3 lineup, starting the game with Kamil Grabara, Elias Jelert, Denis Vavro, Kevin Diks, Birger Meling, Viktor Claesson, Rasmus Falk, Diogo Goncalves, Roony Bardghji, Jordan Larsson and Mohamed Elyounoussi.
In our view, FC Copenhagen should be able to put one past this FC Nordsjælland lineup, but that realistically won’t be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re tipping both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for FC Nordsjælland at full-time. Could easily see this go either way.
