Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Copenhagen will be looking to defend their two-goal lead in the tie against Stjarnan when they take on the Icelanders at their Telia Parken in the Danish capital. Copenhagen failed to impress in the two-legged tie against KuPS, but they proved their worth in the 2-0 win over Stjarnan in the first leg of the Europa League second qualifying round and, as a result, they are with one foot in round 3. Former Ajax midfielder Viktor Fisher is undisputedly the team’s key player and all eyes will be on him when Copenhagen and Stjarnan take on each other in Thursday’s football match. The visitors are on a three-game losing run ahead of the trip to Denmark, which is yet another reason why we predict they are going to return home empty-handed. Bosnian attacker Kenan is likely to lead the line for Copenhagen in the Telia Parken clash.
Highlighted Player (Viktor Fischer):
Viktor Fischer is a professional football player who was born in Aarhus, Denmark on 9 June, 1994. Fischer used to play for several Danish clubs during his youth career (Lyseng, Viby, AGF, Midtylland) and in 2012 he made his senior debut for Eredivisie giants Ajax.
The Dutch forward played his first game for Ajax on 20 October 2012 in a 3-3 draw and he scored his first goal for the Dutch outfit on 31 October 2012 against ONS Sneek in the KNVB Cup. Viktor is the grandson of former Danish football player Poul Pedersen. Both prefer to play on the wing, but Viktor Fisher is capable of playing as attacking midfielder or centre forward as well. It has to be noted that he scored ten goals in 23 appearances for Ajax in the 2012/2013 Eredivisie campaign.
On 14 November, 2012 he made his Denmark debut in a friendly against Turkey. Fischer was widely regarded as one of Ajax’s hottest prospects and he eventually joined Premier League newcomers Middlesbrough in the summer of 2016.
Highlighted Team (FC Copenhagen):
The most successful club in the history of Danish football FC 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.
