Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League

Leicester welcome FC Copenhagen to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening, in the third round of matches from the Champions League group stages.

Claudio Ranieri’s side come into this match on the back of a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea at the weekend.

Goals from Diego Costa (7), Eden Hazard (33) and Victor Moses (80) completed a miserable afternoon for the Premier League Champions.

That is the third heavy defeat the Foxes have suffered this season, with a 4-1 defeat against Manchester United and a heavy loss at Anfield as well.

Foxes In Poor Form

Leicester had gone into the weekend’s fixtures in mixed form, having drawn 0-0 against Southampton at home.

They have seemingly prioritized Champions League progression as the benchmark this season, with the Premier League form suffering heavily.

European football has been a completely different story though, with two wins from their opening two matches.

Leicester Favourites

Despite their indifferent form in the league the Foxes remain favourites, with home advantage crucial in the Champions League.

They will be looking to register their third successive win of the competition, with two excellent wins against Porto and Club Brugge already.

Ranieri’s side remain in the driving seat to top the group and another home win will go a long way to cementing their qualification.


Leicester City

Visitors In Excellent Form

FC Copenhagen travel to the King Power Stadium on the back of a 2-0 win against Silkborg at the weekend.

It’s a result that leaves the Danish side top of the Danish Super League, with 29 points from 13 matches.

Copenhagen have extended that unbeaten form into the Champions League as well, with a win and a draw from their opening two matches.

Copenhagen Second 

Despite being in a very competitive group the visitors will have targeted progression in this group, despite the presence of some top sides.

They drew their opening game against Porto 1-1, an excellent result given the Portuguese side’s record at home.

Copenhagen remain second in the group, having also dispatched Club Brugge by 4-0 in their last match.

Goals from Denswil (53 og), Delaney (64), Santander (69) and Jorgensen (90+2) completing a second half route.

Danish Side Underdogs

FC Copenhagen come into this match as underdogs, they will be looking to register their second win in the Champions League this season.

This will be a tough fixture for the Danish, with Leicester looking formidable in the Champions League but they too will be confident given their excellent opening.

The Danish side will be looking to better their record in England, they have never won on English soil, with a record of two losses and two draws.
