Football – Europe – Europa League Betting Tips

Copenhagen will prepare for the visit from Spanish club, Atletico Madrid at their Telia Parken knowing they face a tough job of progressing further than the round of 16 which will be held over two legs, the first being in Copenhagen on Thursday night.

Although Copenhagen progressed to this stage of the Europa League thanks to a runners-up place in Group F, they only just edged out Moldovan outfit, Sheriff Tiraspol, by virtue of a better goal difference, but they’ll face one of the in form clubs in the Spanish La Liga in this tie.

The Danish club have only just resumed their domestic season following their winter break, and a cup defeat to Brondby in the DBU Pokalen was their first result, but they did manage to bounce back with a resounding 5-1 home win over Randers in the Superliga.

Atletico Madrid finished in third spot in the Champions League Group C behind Roma and Chelsea, which earned them another bite at european football as they enter the Europa League in the round of 16 stages, starting with a tie against Copenhagen.

The visitors come into this first leg tie having recorded three wins on the trot in La Liga with wins over Las Palmas, Valencia and Malaga, and although it’s been five years since they were involved at this level, as they’ve qualified for the Champions League in the interim (reaching the semi-finals last season), they’ve been in good form in their domestic campaign to date.

Atletico Madrid currently occupy second spot in the Spanish top flight as the balance of power has seen a definite shift this term, with rivals Real Madrid sitting in fourth place and a significant 10 points adrift, and the likes of Griezmann (8 goals) and Correa (6 goals) should be too strong for the hosts here.
