Following a stunning 8-0 win over Sarajevo on the road, Gian Piero Gasperini’s players have demolished Hapoel Haifa 6-1 on aggregate, and they’ve maintained an impressive form even this week, defeating Frosinone in the first Serie A fixture by four goals to nil. The former Genoa manager hopes to repeat last season’s success and reach the Europa League group stage, but Copenhagen will have their say in this encounter.

Before reaching the Europa League playoff round, Ståle Solbakken’s team has eliminated KuPS, Stjarnan, and CSKA Sofia, but playing against the Italian side will be a much harder challenge.
Marco Varnier, Jose Palomino, and Josip Ilicic are all sidelined in the home squad, while Jonas Older Wind and Jose Zeca won’t be available for the visitors.
