If you’ve watched any recent Leicester games, you have surely seen something odd: although the team still fights, is disciplined and tries to win games, they are playing without any kinds of pressure. They know they have absolutely no chance to repeat last season’s historic achievement.
This lack of pressure has also led to good things: they lead their Champions League group, ahead of the second episode of the clash with Danish champions Copenhagen.
Copenhagen vs Leicester City – 02/11/2016
Betting Odds: Copenhagen 2.30 or 13/10 Draw 3.30 or 23/10 Leicester City 3.50 or 5/2
9 points, 5 goals scored, none conceded – a pretty good record if you ask us. The rest of the teams in the group have also lost points between them, so if Leicester manages to avoid defeat here, they are 90% sure of their presence in the Champions League knockout round.
They are coming after a 1-1 away draw against Tottenham, a great result for their morale, and will be looking not only to qualify but also to win the group.
Meanwhile, the Danes know they must use their home ground advantage to its fullest in these last 3 games if they want to win second place.
Thankfully for them, they will play Porto at home as well, and if they manage to avoid defeat against both Leicester and Porto and win away in Belgium, they might just sneak through.
Of course, a win over Leicester can greatly change these calculations. The entire city is eagerly awaiting this clash.
Copenhagen vs Leicester City Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we are looking at a very balanced game. Leicester is, without a doubt, the better team, but home ground advantage can weigh much here. We would incline to recommend a Copenhagen +1,0 bet – even if Leicester win, it will still be close.
If you believe the English club can tie the 4th win, go for X2 – the odds should be more than enough. Also, we think it’s time we see one of Vardy or Mahrez on the scoresheet again since it’s been quite a while.
