Team News: Viborg FF
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just a single fitness concern for the Viborg FF manager Jakob Poulsen to contend with from a near full-strength group of players. Mads Lauritsen (Achilles tendon problems) will miss out. Renato Júnior is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our view, De Grønne should kick off with a 4-3-3 system for this one featuring Lucas Lund Pedersen, Srdjan Kuzmic, Zan Zaletel, Nicolas Buergy, O. B. Kristensen, Ibrahim Said, Jeppe Groenning, Jakob Bonde, Isak Steiner Jensen, Anosike Ementa and Serginho.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
It’s our belief that FCK seem likely to play in a 4-3-3 lineup, giving starts to Kamil Grabara, Elias Jelert, Denis Vavro, Kevin Diks, Birger Meling, Lukas Lerager, Rasmus Falk, Diogo Goncalves, Roony Bardghji, Andreas Cornelius and Mohamed Elyounoussi.
Here is a game where Viborg FF will need to put in a solid display to hit the back of the net against this FC Copenhagen team who we think will score one, at least.
We therefore see a 0-1 winning margin for FC Copenhagen after 90 minutes.
Should be interesting.
