Reason For FC Copenhagen vs Istanbul Basaksehir Predictions

Both teams scored in five of Copenhagen's last eight UEL matches.

Istanbul Basaksehir scored at least once in seven of their last eight Europa League matches.

Copenhagen drew two of their last three UEL home games 1-1.

Both teams registered in three of Istanbul Basaksehir's last four Europa League assignments

Quarter Final spot on offer

Danish giants Copenhagen host recently crowned Turkish champions Istanbul Basaksehir in the Europa League Last 16 second leg this week, with the tie balanced on a knife edge ahead Wednesday's tussle.

Copenhagen fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat in the first leg in Turkey on March 12 after Edin Visca buried an 88 th minute spot kick for the hosts, however with a high-profile date with Manchester United in the quarter finals on offer for the victors, this week's second leg feels far from over.

The Danes warmed up for Wednesday's game with successive wins in the Championship Round of the Superliga, though Ståle Solbakken's men had lost four out of five games before that during a disappointing spell.

Istanbul Basaksehir's title winning momentum

Istanbul Basaksehir meanwhile, should arrive in Denmark with their confidence soaring having just lifted their first ever Turkish League title.

With talented manager Okan Buruk calling the shots, and performances from veteran players like Gael Clichy, Martin Skrtel, Eljero Elia and Demba Ba key - Basaksehir broke the stranglehold traditional big hitters Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas held on domestic football in Turkey to achieve unprecedented success for the club.

In the Europa League, good results and performances against teams like Borussia Monchengladbach and Sporting CP highlights just how potent a force Basaksehir can be, and the newly crowned title holders will back themselves to progress to the quarter finals this week.

Goals likely at both ends

Copenhagen's Europa League campaign so far has been a strange journey in terms of results, with the Danish outfit winning just twice in their last eight matches en-route to the Last 16 stage.

Goals flying in at both ends has been a consistent feature of their games to date however, with both teams registering in five of their last eight matches in the competition.

At the Telia Parken, both teams registered in two of their last three continental assignments, with each of those games finishing as 1-1 draws - and we think Wednesday's meeting with Istanbul Basaksehir should follow a similar pattern

Istanbul Basaksehir notched in all but one of their last eight UEL fixtures, however the clean sheet they secured in their first leg win over Copenhagen, was one of only three shutouts during that period.

With the aforementioned factors considered, the both teams to score market looks the way to go for Wednesday's skirmish, while our correct score prediction settles on a 1-1 draw.

Copenhagen failed to win any of their last three Europa League games at the Telia Parken, drawing twice and conceding exactly one goal in each contest, while Basaksehir hit the net once in two of their last three matches in the tournament, including March's first leg.

With their title winning momentum key, Okan Buruk's charges should be able to force the result they need to progress to the Europa League's next stage.
