FC Copenhagen-Juventus Betting Preview: Visitors value to ease past out-of-sorts hosts

Stale Solbakken's side face a stern test in the Champions League when Antonio Conte's men are the visitors and our tipster expects the Old Lady to be too strong for the Danes
Italian champions Juventus begin their Champions League campaign on Tuesday night when they travel to Denmark to take on FC Copenhagen.

Antonio Conte’s side are considered by many to be dark horses to win the competition outright and they have been installed as warm favourites by the odds compilers to win against the Danish champions in Copenhagen. The Old Lady are chalked up at just 2/9 (1.22) to claim three points from their trip to Parken.

Copenhagen, now under the stewardship of former Wolves manager Stale Solbakken, have endured a difficult start to the new campaign, with the defending champions having claimed just seven points from their opening eight league fixtures.

Indeed, Copenhagen have won just one competitive fixture this season, so it is little surprise to see them chalked up at a chunky 9/1 (10.0) with BetVictor to defeat Antonio Conte’s men on Tuesday while the draw is available at 19/5 (4.80) with the same firm.

The Italian side, by contrast, have enjoyed a solid start to the campaign, winning three of their opening four fixtures before being held to a 1-1 draw against Inter at San Siro on Saturday evening.

Furthermore, Juventus have netted an impressive 10 goals in four fixtures this season – including a 4-0 Super Cup victory over Lazio – and they should prove too strong for Stale Solbakken’s side here.

With that in mind, the 5/6 (1.83) quote from BetVictor for Antonio Conte’s men to keep a clean sheet in Copenhagen certainly offers plenty of appeal.

However, given Juventus’ superior firepower, better value may lie in snapping up the 23/20 (2.15) quote on offer from BetVictor for The Old Lady to win to nil on Tuesday and that is the recommended play here.

Those seeking to claim big winnings from small stakes are advised to concentrate on BetVictor’s correct score market, with the generous 6/1 (7.0) quote for Antonio Conte’s men to win 2-0 on Tuesday offering excellent value for punters from this clash.
