FC Copenhagen v Astra – Parken Stadium at 18:45
In my previous preview my recommendation of +2.5 goals in the Vojvodina v Dinamo Minsk game, was a tough loss. Vojvodina were unable to proceed and obtain the victory after being loved by the market.
Proceeding on, FC Copenhagen v Astra was a game that generated a standout price in the over’s markets.
Copenhagen could not of produced a more productive start to their season, with three wins from their opening three games. Generating a goal difference of +11, from which they are yet to concede.
However, Copenhagen did concede in the first leg of this Champions League tie. Conceding after seven minutes in Romania.

FC Copenhagen and Astra have met twice in the previous four weeks, with Astra causing the Danish Champions problems on both occasions.

If the same scenario was inflicted upon this game, we may well be set for an open exciting matchup.
Astra have produced a disheartening start to their Liga 1 campaign with an opening day 4-1 defeat. Followed by a drab 0-0 draw with Pandurii Targu, which has seen them slump to 11th in the table.
However, with only two games proceeded into the current season and the possibility of qualification to the next stage of the Champions League. Astra have the prospect of changing their current situation.
