The match tour, played in Copenhagen, was the most unbalanced in the first leg of the 16th European League. Here’s what we recommend for Thursday’s game!
Atletico Madrid won the tour. It was 4-1, and the score proportions make the elimination almost impossible. Simeone’s team has a very good time. The goal in Denmark was the only one of the last five games to play, all won by Madrileni. Some more important players will probably not play back. Atletico can also think of the difficult weekend match with Sevilla.
After defeating the Europa League, FC Copenhagen also lost in domestic competition. Midtjylland was 3-1 in the last round. FC Copenhagen has arrived at nine away games without winning away and guests will find it very hard to end the Wanda Metropolitano series.
Atletico Madrid and FC Copenhagen have played so far two games, both in the Europa League. Besides the victory of the tour, the Madrilenii also won a match in the group stage, in the 2007/2008 edition.
Lucas Hernandez was replaced in the Sunday match with Athletic Bilbao. He probably will not be forced into this game. Stefan Savic is unavailable. Diego Simeone will probably make a lot of changes in the starting game, given the definite victory in the tour.
Zeca was suspended for the tour, but will be the titleholder on Thursday. Thus, one of Jan Gregus and William Kvist will lose their place in the middle of the pitch in the guests’ team.
Moya – Luis, Godin, Gimenez, Juanfran – Vitolo, Gabi, Partey, Carrasco – Torres, Gameiro
Olsen – Boilesen, Luftner, Vavro, Ankersen – Jensen, Zeca, Gregus, Skov – Fischer, Sotiriou
With an extremely solid defensive, Atletico Madrid may not receive a goal on Thursday. A 0-4 defeat is fantastic, so guests have no real reason to hope for a happy ending. Realistically speaking, the Madrilens should achieve a new success, continuing the good period.
PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.64
