FC Copenhagen v FC Torino Betting Preview

Date: December 11, 2014
Venue: Parken, Copenhagen, Denmark
Kick-off time: 18:00 BST

The Europa League, Group B game between FC Copenhagen and FC Torino is the game that will decide the outcome of the standings as far as Torino is concerned. Copenhagen is out of the competition for the knockout stages; Torino meanwhile, has a strong claim to progress further.

Copenhagen’s form on the day of the match will turn the tides, but for whom it is a mystery.

FC Copenhagen form: D-W-L-W-W

Copenhagen has drawn just one match and lost the other four of the five league matches they have played. Their previous group game against Helsinki ended in a 2-1 loss.

There is no way they can grab up with the teams above them; nonetheless if they win this match Torino’s hopes of progressing will end. If they lose this match, Helsinki has a chance to progress further from Group B.

FC Torino form: L-L-D-L-D

Torino place in the group is rather difficult one; the only way they will progress depends on winning the game. On the other part, if they win whether they progress as group winners or as runners up, depends on the outcome of the next game.

Torino’s last game against Copenhagen was a narrow win and will expect better if not the same kind of performance.

Key Players

FC Copenhagen: Andreas Cornelius

The Danish forward has been assimilated in the international setup and is a major part of the Copenhagen plans. His intelligent runs and good range of shooting makes him a danger man in and around the penalty area.

FC Torino: Amauri

The veteran Italian forward was supposed to be the one to fill the void left by Ciro Immobile’s departure to Borussia Dortmund. However, with no goals this season, there seems to be a growing pressure on him. Yet he’s more involved in creating goals rather than scoring.

Betting Advice

Torino can be a better side than the displays so far by them. With a few more tweaks, they can repeat their last season form. Back Torino to win at 2.4 with Bet365.
