EUROPA LEAGUE | MATCH PREVIEW

First European clash of 2018

This will be the second time our side faces Copenhagen, the first being back in 2007.

Atlético de Madrid will face FC Copenhagen in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League Round of 32. Kick-off is set for 9:05 p.m. CET in the Telia Parken Stadium.

This will be the second time our side faces Copenhagen, the first being back in 2007. We won that match 0-2 thanks to Simao and Agüero’s goals. The match could be a particularly special one for our captain Gabi. If he plays, he’ll become our player with the most UEFA appearances: 72.

Copenhagen are currently fourth in the Danish Superliga with 29 points. Diego Pablo Simeone expects the Danish side to put up a good fight in the Telia Parken Stadium and is confident the lads will give it their 100 percent to take an important win back to Madrid.

“They defend as a group and play with a 4-4-2 set up," our coach said. "When they stop defending, they create their play on the wings and we’ll have to be ready to defend those kind of situations
