Barcelona vs FC Copenhagen – Champions League – Match Preview and Betting Tips

Find a Betting Bonus for the match at Camp NouToday the 20th of October, all eyes will be set at the New Camp or Camp Nou as they actually call it in Barcelona, where the home team Barcelona will be facing FC Copenhagen in a Champions League clash at approximately 7.45 BST. Predictions are that Barcelona will bag all the point, but we all know games are not won on paper, now are they?

Barcelona Coach Pep Guardiola is certainly keen on preventing his players from underestimating Copenhagen, whereas their young star Lionel Messi is adamant that they must beat Copenhagen despite fatigue. Barcelona will be without their star midfielder Xavi, who is out on injury heaping all the pressure on Iniesta, a feat he has managed to handle quite magnificently with consistent performance in the past games.

Copenhagen on the other hand will be depending on their Senegalese star striker Dame Ndoye to bag all the three points for them. He did in a previous match against Rubin Kazan, where the Danish team won 1-0. Despite winning all the games in the group stage, Copenhagen are yet to prove themselves against the mighty Barca, who is by far the the best them in the group with their impressive passing game. Every defenders nightmare, they just keep hustling and hustling for the ball! Watch this game and you will see what I’m talking about.

The group standings before tonight’s games

1 FC Copenhagen 2 2 0 0 3 0 3 6
2 Barcelona 2 1 1 0 6 2 4 4
3 Rubin Kazan 2 0 1 1 1 2 -1 1
4 Panathinaikos 2 0 0 2 1 7 -6 0

FC Copenhagen has done a lot better than expected in group D, where they are the current group leaders after winning the first 2 games. The team is in a class of its own in the Danish SuperLiga, and the team has 10 wins and 2 draws in the first 12 games. With the recent success int he Champions League, it is expected that FC Copenhagen will enter Camp Nou with a ton of self confidence.

From a betting perspective there is no doubt mighty Barcelona are huge favorites to win the match tonight, however a small warning has to be given since a draw will benefit FC Copenhagen immensely in their quest to enter the next round of Champions League.

Betting on the match

Thus we warn punters betting heavily on FC Barcelona and instead take a look for the big up set. Can FC Copenhagen in their current form win 1 of 20 matches away from home against the presumed best soccer club in the world? That is definitely a likely scenario, which makes it a value bet to place a little money on the underdog at high prices.
