Copenhagen and Trabzonspor will be coming up against each other in the first leg of the final round of Champions League qualifiers on Tuesday.
Copenhagen will be hosting Trabzonspor in the first leg of the final round of the Champions League qualifiers. The first leg in Denmark will be a huge step for both sides in realising their dream of Champions League group stage action. Both the clubs have not experienced the group stage action of Champions League for quite some time. The Danish outfit did so last in the 2016-17 season while Trabzonspor haven’t made it past the qualifiers since 2011-12.

Copenhagen have been highly inconsistent in their recent fixtures. In their last six matches, they have managed three wins and three losses. Undoubtedly, this type of mixed run wouldn’t be ideal for a club at the final stage of Champions League qualification. They sit at the eighth spot in the Danish first division seven points off the summit. Coach, Jess Thorup will be hoping that the occasion drives his players to perform at their best and earn a positive result.
Trabzonspor, too have been caught in the middle of a mixed run of results in their recent fixtures. They have got three wins, one draw and two defeats in their last six fixtures. The Turkish side won the league title last year after a 38 year gap. Their manager, Abdullah Avci will now be looking to go a step further and earn his side a place in the Champions League group stages.
Copenhagen will have to deal with the unavailability of their main two goalkeepers, Kamil Grabara and Mathew Ryan, both out injured. In addition, Nicolai Boilesen and Orri Oskarsson will also be unavailable. For Trabzonspor, the main absentees will be the injured Marek Hamsik, Edin Visca, Serkan Asan, Bruno Peres and Huseyin Turkmen.
Copenhagen possible line-up: Johnsson, Diks, Vavro, Khocholava, Kristiansen, Falk, Lerager, Haraldsson, Claesson, Daramy, Biel
Trabzonspor possible line-up: Cakir, Larsen, Denswil, Hugo, Elmali, Siopis, Kouassi, Omur, Bakasetas, Trezeguet, Cornelius
