Recommended Bets:

A Look at FC Copenhagen’s Betting Odds:

The fact Copenhagen are playing at home is a major fillip to their chances of victory. They have won each of their last four outings on their own patch by an aggregate score of 10-0.

The Copenhagen v Leicester betting has the Danes priced up as the 5/4 favourites for victory and a win would ensure they move closer onto the heels of the Foxes in the race to top Group G in the Champions League.

However, with Copenhagen strong defensively at home and Leicester joining Atletico Madrid in having not conceded a goal through the opening three gameweeks in the competition, some may prefer the 6/1 that this clash ends goalless.

Alternatively, it is 13/20 that under 2.5 goals are scored in the match.

A Look at Leicester’s Betting Odds:

A victory in their first visit to Denmark for a competitive fixture would ensure Leicester’s qualification to the knockout rounds of the Champions League with two games to spare.

The ability to rest players and give European experience to others should offer enough incentive for Claudio Ranieri to pick his strongest team here and Leicester’s odds are 23/10 to beat Copenhagen.

Aside from victories and clean sheets, another common feature of Leicester’s triumphs over Club Brugge, Porto and Copenhagen to date has been the timings of the goals.

They have not only taken the lead in the opening 45 minutes of each game, they have scored more in the first half than the second on all three occasions. It is 14/5 that this bet proves successful again.
