Galatasaray vs Copenhagen Preview - 20/09/2023 - UEFA Champions League

Copenhagen qualified for the Champions League group stage after they got the better of Rakow Czestochowa in the qualification round. The Denmark outfit won 1-0 away from home and were held 1-1 at home, in the return leg, by the Polish side. They are obviously the favourites to finish at the bottom of Group A as they would come up against experienced sides Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Galatasaray but in football, anything is possible. 

They start their UCL campaign with a trip to Turkey in mid September to face Galatasaray, who also booked their place in the group stage via qualification. The clash is expected to be tricky but because of the number of experienced players in the Turkish side's team, the Polish outfits are the underdogs. 

Galatasaray have done well this season and successfully reached the group stage after eliminating Molde, a very strong Norway side. The Turkish side won 3-2 away from home in Norway and won 3-1 in Turkey last week in the return leg. 

There are ideas that Okan Buruk's side can challenge for the top two spots, thanks to the array of frightening talents, including Tadic and Icardi, at his disposal. However, they must start their campaign with a win over Copenhagen at home before thinking about getting points off super Bayern Munich and Manchester United as the group stage progresses.

Galatasaray vs Copenhagen Prediction - 20/09/2023 - UEFA Champions League

For the Galatasaray vs Copenhagen prediction, we say Galatasaray to win 3-1 and this is why. The Turkish giants are unbeaten this season after eight matches [6W2D]. They won their last two Champions League qualification matches against a good side, Molde, hence, they will prove unplayable when they host Copenhagen, who are also a decent side. Both teams are decent in the final third, hence we aniticipate goals on end.

Furthermore, the last time Galatasaray hosted Copenhagen in the Champions League, they won 3-1. However, they would go on to lose the return leg 1-0 in Denmark.

Prediction: Galatasaray 3-1 Copenhagen

Odds:

Galatasaray win: 1.62

Draw: 4.30

Copenhagen win: 5.70
