The two teams are considered as the outsiders in Group A that also included six-time European champions Bayern Munich and three-time winners Manchester United.

Following an unwanted three-year hiatus from the Champions League, Galatasaray are back in the big time this season after successfully navigating their way past FK Zalgiris, NK Olimpija Ljubljana and Molde in the qualifiers, beating the latter 5-3 on aggregate in the playoff round at the end of last month.

Okan Buruk’s side have made an impressive start to the new campaign and they are enjoying an unbeaten 10-game run across all competitions, winning each of their last six matches and scoring 15 goals in the process.

However, with both Bayern Munich and Man United joining them in Group A, the prospect of reaching the knockout rounds for the first time since 2013-14 seems a tall order.

Copenhagen also had to battle their way through Champions League qualifiers to reach this season’s group stage for the second successive year, beating Breidablik, Sparta Prague and Rakow Czestochowa over two legs.

Jacob Neestrup’s side claimed a record-equalling 15th Danish top-flight title last season and have since made a strong start to the new campaign, winning six of their opening eight league matches to put them at the Superliga summit.

However, the Lions have experienced a slight dip in form in recent weeks, as they have won just one of their last four matches across all competitions, including a 2-2 draw played out with Nordsjaelland last weekend.

Success on Wednesday could prove challenging, as Copenhagen have won just one of their last 12 away matches in the Champions League – excluding qualifiers – while their opponents Galatasaray have lost just one of their last nine European games on home soil.

FC Copenhagen Team News

Andreas Cornelius was forced off with an injury just 20 minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute last weekend, and the Danish striker is set to miss out on Wednesday.

Defenders Nicolai Boilesen and Davit Khocholava, who is yet to play this season, are also injury doubts for the visitors and will be assessed ahead of kickoff.
