FC Copenhagen vs Atalanta Preview

FC Copenhagen vs Atalanta

Competition – UEFA Europa League

Stadium – Parkstadion

Date: 30th August

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Atalanta face a major hurdle in reaching the Europa League group stages after they failed to beat Copenhagen in the first leg at home.

However, with the game nicely poised at 0-0, the Italians should feel they have a better chance having not conceded an away goal in the first leg.

La Dea had a good run in this competition last season along with the Serie A and they have started their domestic campaign well, so their fans will be hoping to travel around Europe again this season.

Copenhagen are also one of the best sides heading into this final qualification game.

They reached the same point as Atalanta last season and they don’t need to be ashamed of being eliminated by Atletico Madrid who eventually won the competition.

The Danes have a bigger reputation in Europe as they took part in the Champions League group stage two seasons ago, and they have started their domestic campaign well, sitting top of the Superliga table.

Atalanta have not lost any of their games in these qualifiers so far and that could give them the needed boost to go on and win this game.

Last week’s draw in Italy is the only previous encounters between these two teams.
