Club Brugge dominated on their previous journey to FC Copenhagen, yet won't be so successful this time...


"FC Copenhagen haven’t just won eight out of nine in front of their fans this season, they have claimed seven of those victories without conceding."

If you make a judgement based on history, you will conclude that Club Brugge are outstanding value at 5.04/1. They won 4-0 in the Danish capital in 2014 and are unbeaten in six trips to the Scandinavian nation, while FC Copenhagen have never netted in three home games against Belgian guests.

However, focus on the evidence of the current campaign and you'll have a completely different reading. Stale Solbakken's men have completed 18 fixtures without losing once, winning eight from nine as hosts and impressively drawing their Group G opener with ten men at Porto. Club Brugge were stunned 3-0 when welcoming newcomers Leicester and have dropped to seventh domestically.

It is also worth noting that the aforementioned 4-0 humbling was the Danish champions' sole reverse in five meetings with their Belgian counterparts, all of which occurred in the past eight years, triumphing twice and drawing twice in the other four. They deserve to be billed as 1.910/11 favourites.


FC Copenhagen Win to Nil

FC Copenhagen haven't just won eight out of nine in front of their fans this season, they have claimed seven of those victories without conceding, with another win to nil available to back at 3.02/1.

They shut out Club Brugge in two of their five prior showdowns, silencing them until the 90th minute in another. The visitors are arguably in a worse position now. In addition to the blank they fired at home to Leicester, they proved incapable of scoring in two of their last four domestic away matches.
