They have also conceded at least twice in each of their last six Champions League games. But Copenhagen have been leaky at home defensively, conceding five in their two matches so far.

Copenhagen vs Galatasaray odds
*Odds correct as of 10:30 on December 11
Copenhagen and Galatasaray go into this game level on points in the group, with the Danish side having the slight upper hand on goal difference. If this game were to finish level, Copenhagen would finish above Galatasaray, and that could be enough to secure a spot in the last 16 if Man Utd fail to beat Bayern Munich. Of course, things are a lot more straightforward too. If there is a winner between these two, they will join Bayern in the last 16 of the Champions League, regardless of what happens elsewhere.
The records are identical for Copenhagen and Galatasaray with one win, two draws and two defeats from their five games so far. Alongside the draw with Galatasaray, Copenhagen have beaten Man Utd, drawn with Bayern as well as suffered two defeats against the latter duo. Galatasaray, meanwhile, drew with Man Utd having also beaten the Red Devils, while losing home and away against Bayern.

Copenhagen vs Galatasaray head-to-head record
- 20 September 2023 – Galatasaray 2-2 Copenhagen – Champions League
- 5 November 2013 – Copenhagen 1-0 Galatasaray – Champions League
- 23 October 2013 – Galatasaray 3-1 Copenhagen – Champions League
It’s impossible to split these two sides with both holding one win and a draw in the three matches so far. Copenhagen may take heart from the fact that the previous game in Denmark ended in their favour, though that was 10 years ago.
