FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray Predictions and Top Betting Tips

We have the following free FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray predictions ahead of a fixture that will decide which team secures a UCL playoff spot.

Team to score prediction – Both teams to score

FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray is expected to be an even game, so our first betting tip for this game is a goal-goal result.  The reverse leg was a 4-goal thriller that ended 2-2. It was all the third meeting since 2013, two of which in that period had goals on both ends. In five rounds played in the ULC so far, Copenhagen have failed to score on two occasions – the last time out in a game that ended 0-0 against Bayern and previously in a 1-0 away loss to Man United.

On the other hand, Galatasaray have scored in each of the five UCL matches they have played so far this season, scoring at least two goals on three occasions.

Total match goals – Over 2.5 goals

In another FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray betting prediction, we expect a goal-fest in this game, just like it was the case in the reverse encounter. These teams are tied at 5 points in Group A, so a loss could mean they potentially lose a UCL playoff spot to Man United (assuming United do the impossible against Bayern in the final round of the group). We expect another high-scoring game of over 2.5 goals.

Correct score prediction – 1-2 to Galatasaray

In the final FC Copenhagen vs Galatasaray prediction, we expect a scoreline of 1-2 for the visitors. While Galatasaray lost the only previous away game against Copenhagen, the Turkish boast a scoring supremacy in this matchup. The visitors have scored 10 goals against 7 for Copenhagen in 5 rounds. However, a total of 12 goals leaked, 4 more than Copenhagen means the visitors will have to backtrack severally to save their leaking defence despite being good in the final third.
