The group stages of a fresh season of the UEFA Champions League begin this week, and Borussia Dortmund will be hosting FC Copenhagen at the Signal Iduna Park.
Dortmund was in the race to make it to the top of the Bundesliga table in the previous season. But a string of unfavorable results towards the end meant that it had to settle for a runners-up spot behind Bayern Munich. Nevertheless, it has gained entry into the Champions League for the 8th consecutive season. After crashing out of the group stages in the last season, coach Edin Terzic will be hoping that his team puts up a better performance this time. Talking about its recent form, Dortmund has won 4 of its 5 top-flight matches this season and is currently at the top of the league table.
Copenhagen finished at the top of the Danish League the last season and was drawn to play against the Turkish club Trabzonspor in the play-off round. Beating them with an aggregate of 2-1, Copenhagen has advanced to the group stages of the Champions League for the first time since the 2016-17 season. They are in the company of some top-notch teams, namely Dortmund, Sevilla, and Manchester City, and face an uphill battle to qualify for the next round. Copenhagen’s recent form hasn’t been up to the mark, as it has managed to win just 4 of its 8 matches in the Danish Superliga, and they start this match as underdogs on most football betting sites.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Borussia Dortmund vs FC Copenhagen Champions League 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Westfalenstadion, Dortmund, on 6th September 2022.
With Dortmund scheduled to face Leipzig and Manchester City by next weekend, Edin Terzic has a delicate job of balancing the match time for his players, so as not to burn them out. He has a long list of absentees for this game, including Mahmoud Dahoud, Karim Adeyemi, Mateu Morey Bauza, Raphael Guerreiro, and Sebastian Haller.
On the other hand, the visitors are likely to travel without Nicolai Boilesen, Roony Bardghji, and Kamil Grabara.
Given the current form of both clubs, we are predicting an easy win for the hosts.
Bet on a Dortmund victory.
Despite Dortmund keeping a clean sheet in its last 2 matches, we expect Copenhagen to score at least once in this match. We are recommending a BTTS bet because Copenhagen has at least once in each of its last 7 top-flight matches, and we are expecting them to breach the defenses of Dortmund at least once on Tuesday.
6 of the last 7 Superliga games for Copenhagen have produced at least 3 goals in them. Also, despite the exit of Erling Haaland, Dortmund has enough firepower up front to launch a ferocious attack on a relatively weak opponent. We are therefore expecting a high-scoring encounter.
