Worth mentioning: Istanbul Basaksehir will be coming into this game unbeaten in four matches and on the back of a comprehensive 3:0 victory at the weekend. The Turks have lost only one of their previous eight meetings and sit on top of the standings in their domestic league. Both of the two defeats the team suffered in the previous eighteen competitive encounters came away from home. All of Istanbul Basaksehir’s last five outings produced over 2,5 goals, as four also saw both involved sides to score. They managed to keep just one clean sheet in the previous eight home matches.
FC Copenhagen somehow managed to eliminate Celtic in the previous round of the competition, but were quickly brought down to Earth, as they lost their last two outings without scoring even once. The victory away at Celtic and the following 3:2 triumph over Aalborg are the only two wins in Copenhagen’s last nine matches. Two of the team’s last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals, while three witnessed goals at both ends. Six of their previous seven visits produced under 2,5 goals.
