“I’ve watched their games. We’ll prepare seriously. We first wanted to conclude the Leipzig game. We’ll limit it to two meetings, keep the info to a minimum. I have the greatest respect for every opponent in the Champions League,” said Tuchel (as captured by @iMiaSanMia). “It’s the toughest club competition in the world. Copenhagen didn’t lose a home game in the Champions League last season against Manchester City, Dortmund and Sevilla.”
In particular, Tuchel admires how Copenhagen coach Jacob Neestrup runs his team.
“He’s a very young and successful coach. Copenhagen are the club winning all the titles in Denmark. He’s got a clear style. We’re expecting Copenhagen in a 4-3-3 formation. They’re very compact, very dangerous on the counter, and we’re expecting a mix of long balls and passing play,” said Tuchel. “There’s a lot of speed, with lots of mobile and quick players up front. In midfield they have physically strong players and a back four with center-backs who like to play and a goalkeeper with a really long throw.”
While Bayern Munich is considered the heavy favorite, Copenhagen could really make Bayern Munich work for its three points in this match.
