Our football match prediction:
Thursday’s football game at Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena pits together Sheriff and Copenhagen. Sheriff played out a goalless draw with Zlin in their opener and, no doubt, they face an uphill task in their second group game against Copenhagen. The Danish were struggling in the Champions League qualifiers earlier this term, but they have been improving their game week by week and they are definitely capable of picking up all three points from the Sheriff game. Serbia international Andrija Pavlovic has found his goal-scoring touch of late, meaning that the opposition defenders should have the Copenhagen attacker at bay. Sheriff are fully focused on winning the domestic trophy and, taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on the Danish champions, who did well to overcome the crisis. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
