Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Dynamo Kiev will be aiming to regain their spot in top two in Group B with a win over Copenhagen at their NSK Olimpijs’kyj. The Ukrainian outfit did well to beat Malmo 1-0 in the opening match of their Europa League campaign, with the team sharing the spoils with Lugano in their second group game.
Dinamo Kiev are on the right track to book their place in the knockout stages, but they can’t afford any complacency in Thursday’s football match against Copenhagen, who have collected four points from the first two group games as well. The Danes look solid at the back and seeing that Dynamo Kiev are after their third consecutive clean sheet in the process, a low-scoring affair is on the cards. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals.
