Huge value on the home side

<div><h2>FC Copenhagen vs Lugano</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/fc-copenhagen-vs-fc-lugano-3895239/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow"><strong>Thursday, September 19, Telia Parken (Copenhagen)</strong></a></p><p>The Danish side enter this match with the 1st chance to win it and kick-off their Europa League campaign with a win. They were knocked-out from the Champions League qualifiers by Red Star Belgrade despite being unbeaten in both legs in regular time. They beat Riga FC in the Europa League playoffs 3-2 on aggregate booking their group stage tickets. On the other side, the Swiss Super League club Lugano earned their UEL group stage spot by finishing 3rd in their domestic league last term. But the question here is how they did that? Simple, in the Swiss Super League there are 2 good clubs, Young Boys and Basel and the rest. Imagine that Lugano finished 3rd with 46 points (equal on points with FC Thun, Luzern and St. Gallen) with a better goals-difference. Yes, they had +1 which is laughable for a team who finishes 3rd in a 10-team table. They won just 10 matches all season long (36 matches in total) and only Grasshoppers and Neuchatel Xamax recorded less wins than them. This season they are already fighting relegation earning just 4 points in 6 matches. They lost 5 of their previous 6 matches across all competition failing to score in 3 of them.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>FC Copenhagen lost one of their best players in the summer, forward Robert Skov who signed with Hoffenheim for 10mil. € but they did well to sign a player with huge experience, Nicklas Bendtner. Their only big issue is that their star player Dame N’Doye is sidelined with a long-term injury and he will not be able to help his teammates on Thursday. Lugano have no relevant injury issues, but their team is 2 classes below FC Copenhagen.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>The bookies are offering us 1.55 for a straight home win which is perfect for a treble bet, but we are here to give a single bet with better value. Yes, FC Copenhagen are probably missing their best player (Dame N’Doye) but they still have a decent squad and we expect them to win this home match and add their 1st 3 points to their tally. They lost just 2 home matches across all competitions since November 2018. We expect a clear home win but for better value we will combine the winners-market with the goals-market.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: FC Copenhagen to win and over 1.5 goals in the match at 1.91 with Coral</strong></em></a></p></div>
