More Europa League action as Welsh Premier Side Newtown get a tasty draw against Danish heavyweights Kobenhaven. Newtown came through the first qualifying roud against Valetta of Malta winning both games 2-1. Boundford and Oswell both found the net over those two games and will be looking to strike again when they face a Kobenhaven team who are yet to play a competitive game this season. Newtown themselves have only had the two games in the Champions League but two games is better than none when we are talking about competitive games and Newtown will fancy their chances of giving Kobenhaven a game here but they are massive underdogs.
Kobenhaven finished as runners up in the league but just four points seperated them from the top spot. Jorgensen the young Danish midfielder is the star man on this squad and will be looking to improve on the ten goals he scored last season. Cornelius and Pourie will look to get a partnership going up front and if Kobenhaven are to get a foot hold in the league this season then they will need more goals from their front men.
Tomorrow's game is a bi of a mismatch in terms of the size of the clubs and the financial structure's of both. Kobenhaven are a massive club and have huge European experience, this will be a great experience for Newtown but I fear that it will be a bridge too far for the fairytale to continue. I hate taking high handicaps though and Newtown +3 on the handicap looks a decent bet to me. I think the Welsh side will make things difficult tomorrow and while they might lose I fancy them to not get embarressed.
