Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Leicester City have been playing above expectations in the 2016/2017 Champions League campaign. The Foxes outclassed Club Brugge in their opener and they did well to record a hard-fought 1-0 win over Porto in their second group game. Key player Mahrez was rested in a 3-0 loss to Chelsea at the weekend, but, no doubt, the Algeria superstar will start Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Copenhagen. Leicester City aim to get their job done in Group G and we predict that Claudio Ranieri’s men will go all guns blazing at the Danish outfit in Tuesday’s football match. Copenhagen hammered club Brugge in their second group game (4-0), but they are unlikely to spoil Leicester’s party at King Power Stadium. The Foxes are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the Champions League and we would not be surprised if the visitors fail to score in their third group game.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later. The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite. Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (FC Copenhagen):
The most successful club in the history of Danish football F.C. Kopenhagen was founded in 1992, through the merger of 15-time Danish champions Kjobenhavns Boldklub and seven-time champions of Denmark Boldklubben 1903. Football Club Copenhagen play their matches at the Telia Parken, a venue that can host 38,000 spectators. The Team of the City as Copenhagen is called in Denmark has won the Danish football championship eleven times, while it has also won the Danish Cup on seven occasions. The club forms great rivalry with Copenhagen’s suburban club Brondby IF with games between the two club attracting some of the biggest crowds in Danish football history in this so called New Firm derby. Through its history F.C. Copenhagen have participated in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League, while their major European accomplishments have been achieved in the Royal League, with the Danish powerhouse winning two titles and coming as runners-up on one occasion.
