Team News: FC Copenhagen
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the FC København gaffer Ståle Solbakken to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Michael Santos (Thigh Muscle Strain) will miss out.
In all likelihood, Byens Hold look set to make use of the 3-5-2 system this time with Karl-Johan Johnsson, Victor Nelsson, Andreas Bjelland, Sotiris Papagiannopoulos, Pierre Bengtsson, Zeca, Jens Dalsgaard Stage, Nicolaj Thomsen, Karlo Bartolec, Jonas Wind and Mohammed Daramy.
Team News: FC Nordsjælland
With a completely healthy group to choose from, FC Nordsjælland manager Flemming Pedersen does not have any fitness worries to report before this clash.
It’s our belief that Tigrene will likely elect for a 4-3-3 formation using Oliver Villadsen, Mads Thychosen, Kian Hansen, Ulrik Yttergård Jenssen, Mathias Rasmussen, Tochi Chukwuani, Magnus Kofod Andersen, Mohammed Diomande, Isaac Atanga, Mikkel Rygaard Jensen and Ibrahim Sadiq.
We’re of the view that FC Nordsjælland will likely be able to find the net against this FC København outfit, however it might not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 win for FC København after the 90. Should be a good one.
