Copenhagen and Rakow’s European Dream: A Match with All to Play For

Key Stats
– Rakow Czestochowa have scored in each of their last five away games.
– Copenhagen have scored in nine of their 11 matches this season across all competitions.
– Jordan Larsson has netted three goals in five Champions League qualifiers this season.

Copenhagen, the famed Danish side, hope to secure a spot in the Champions League for consecutive seasons as they head into the home leg holding a 1-0 advantage against Polish champions Rakow Czestochowa. Copenhagen’s aspirations of marking back-to-back seasons in Europe’s elite competition stand in contrast with Rakow’s dream of making their maiden appearance.

Surprisingly, Copenhagen’s 1-0 lead from the away game flattered them. They were on the back foot for much of the match, managing a meagre single shot on target. The deciding factor in Poland was an unfortunate own goal by Bogdan Racovitan within the first ten minutes. Despite being the dominant side in terms of possession and creating numerous chances, Rakow couldn’t find the net.

Jacob Neestrup’s Copenhagen experienced an unexpected 3-1 home loss to Silkeborg soon after their narrow victory, a result that tainted their previously unblemished record in the Danish Superliga. However, they remain formidable, sitting second based on goal difference. Their impressive domestic start comprised five successive wins, tallying 13 goals and keeping two clean sheets.

Copenhagen’s European journey thus far has been quite a ride. An aggregate 8-3 win over Icelandic club Breidablik was followed by a nerve-wracking penalty shootout victory against Sparta Prague after a 3-3 draw.

Rakow Czestochowa’s journey to the playoffs has seen them successfully navigate three qualifying rounds since early July. Their progression included victories over Flora, Qarabag FK, and Aris Limassol. This is particularly remarkable given Rakow’s recent history. Under the stewardship of Marek Papszun, they ascended from the third tier of Polish football in 2016-17, winning the second-tier title in 2018-19. Not resting on their laurels, Rakow secured their inaugural Ekstraklasa title last season, culminating a spectacular rise in Polish football.

Analysing Form and Key Players

Despite Copenhagen’s home strength, their team is depleted due to injuries to Akinkunmi Amoo, Khouma Babacar, Elias Achouri, and Davit Khocholava. Their formation, led by the likes of Mohamed Elyounoussi and Jordan Larsson in the front, will likely stick to Neestrup’s preferred 4-3-3.

Rakow, on the other hand, will likely feature their 3-4-3 formation, with key players such as Fabian Piasecki and Vladyslav Kochergin leading the attack. They have their own injury woes with Adrian Gryszkiewicz, Ivi Lopez, and Kamil Pestka sidelined.

When assessing top performers, based on the BettingTips4You Expert Rating, we notice key players such as Theo Sander and Diogo Gonçalves for Copenhagen and John Yeboah and Dawid Drachal for Rakow playing pivotal roles for their respective sides.


  1. Goals from Both Sides: Rakow have consistently found the net in their away games, scoring in each of their last five and accumulating eight goals. Copenhagen, while having a sturdy record at home, have showcased their attacking prowess by scoring in nine of their 11 matches this season. Thus, a bet on both teams to score seems highly plausible.
  2. Final Score Estimate: Given Copenhagen’s home dominance and Rakow’s away form, a 1-1 draw appears to be a sound correct score prediction. A draw would suffice for Copenhagen, and given Rakow’s need to score, the game promises goals.
  3. Likely Goalscorer: Jordan Larsson, despite his limited playtime in the recent Silkeborg game, stands out as a probable scorer for Copenhagen. Having bagged three goals in five Champions League qualifiers this season, he is certainly one to watch out for.
