Soccer Predictions and analysis of the match: CSKA – Copenhagen
CSKA Sofia is facing Copenhagen in the first match between the two teams in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
CSKA’s team long waited for their big European match and the upcoming one could be called that. Danish Copenhagen is a team that regularly plays in the Champions League or Europa League groups in recent years. Copenhagen last season finished only fourth in the Danish championship and had to start from the first qualifying round of the Europa League. “Blue and White” eliminated Finland’s Kuopio Cup with a 2:1 overall result at the start of the tournament, after which they were much more convincing in their matches against Icelandic Styrian and scored two wins with 2:0 and 5:0.
The team of CSKA Sofia is in very good shape and is in a series of five consecutive wins, and in four of the matches it kept a dry net. Over the weekend, the “reds” defeated the Dunav with 3:0, registering a third consecutive success since the start of the Bulgarian championship, where they were only headed with a nine-point lead. In the Europa League team, Nestor El Maestro defeated Austria’s Admira Wacker in three games: 3:1 and 3:0. Previously, the “Army” had much more difficulty against the Latvian Riga, taking the penalty shootout on Latvian land, where CSKA’s team managed to win.
The new addition of the “red” Mauridetes impresses with his appearances with five goals in five matches for the team. He will certainly lead the attack of CSKA Sofia in the upcoming match and will partner with Kiril Despodov in attack. Another of the new ones – Evander, who debuted in the duel against the Danube, will remain the reserve, and most likely the young striker Tomislav Yordanov.

CSKA – Copenhagen: Soccer predictions
This is undoubtedly one of the most interesting league matches in the Europa League in the third round. The shape of both teams makes us expect a very equal match on Thursday night. Copenhagen enters this match in a series of five consecutive wins in all tournaments, with their last four meetings not allowing a shot. CSKA does not have a goal on its own field this season and scored three goals in its last two games. Given these facts, the most logical prognosis for the upcoming match at “Vasil Levski” stadium looks at the two doors.
Otherwise the odds for the winner of the match are flattened, which is quite normal given the more experience of the guests in the European club tournaments in recent years, while CSKA has a home advantage. Overall, however, the probability of Copenhagen not losing the game is quite high, and even the Danish team’s success rate is quite attractive.
