FC Copenhagen do not relax from Istanbul with a point - but turn hopefully home without corona!
In a battle which should never have been settled, lost to copenhagen 1-0 to Turkish Istanbul Basaksehir in the first Europa League 1/8-finale.
The Danish masters live thus still before the second leg, but the question is, when the game is played - if at all-do it.
Coronavirussen has also put the soccer ball down, but FCK’s managed under difficult circumstances to burn a reasonable match.
It had not been undeserved if they had scored a draw, but a penalty kick in the very questionable department five minutes before time gave the Istanbul Basaksehir a slender 1-0 victory.
In advance, there was talk that the Turkish president Recep Erdogan would be in place at the Fatih Terim Stadium.
Istanbul Basaksehir is his team, and it is no coincidence that the club was moved to the suburb of Basaksehir. It is PAC-land, and it was Turkey's fodboldære, who was at the game.
But Erdogan was not on the VIP grandstand, and there were also not filled up in the stands, even though there had been reported sold out.

The spectators, who had come, waving, however, with the provided Turkish flag and whistled loudly, when FC Copenhagen had the ball.
Shortly before the purge announced by the Turkish football federation, the matches in Turkey must be held without spectators until the end of april.
Tilskuerforbuddet was not, however, Europa League draw, and Basaksehir-the supporters were close to getting a scoring to cheer about in the ninth minute.
Andreas Bjelland lost the ball in a critical place, and it gave Edin Visca a free skudchance outside of the box.
His attempt hit teammate Enzo Crivelli, cheated completely Kalle Johnsson, but hit the post and bounced luckily for FCK in the games again.
the Copenhageners had otherwise started the purge well.
the 18-year-old Mohamed Daramy, who in Lady N’Doyes skadesfravær got the chance in front, was early a loose option in the field, but had to see his attempt blocked.
There was a quite equal performance in the Turkish of these.
the FCK did not create it big, but had good control of the orangeklædte turks, and it was not much, so to Demba Ba in the match introduction.

In the 33. minutes got the former Premier League-bombs, however, a skudmulighed, when Pierre Bengtsson was overplayed, but he sent his attempt hint over, and a chancefattig the first half ended without scores.
Istanbul Basaksehir-pressed in the beginning of the second half and drew some more balls into the FCK-field.
It was mostly rejected by Nelsson & co., and Stale Solbakkens crew got gradually good grip on the fight again.
the Norwegian had undoubtedly dreamed of to get a udebanescoring home to Copenhagen, but copenhagen was not really close.
There was a preparation for something several times, but we had never seen, about Basaksehir-goalkeeper Mert Gunok can take with the hands.

With the small twenty minutes again put Basaksehir coach Okan Buruk 36-year-old Robinho on the pitch, and he was immediately close to turn to.
the Brazilian was played free in the box, but his flat end did not hit within the target frame, and Demba Ba reached exactly not to set foot on.
It looked like a nulløsning, but with a small five minutes again struck Victor Nelsson ball in the back of Zeca, and it gave Demba Ba an unexpected chance.
He pulled into the field, but was not completed, as Varela resigned him.
Uruguayaneren thought that he hit the ball and such so it is also out - but neither referee William Collum or the people of WAS-the room was in agreement with the FCK-charlie.
It was a penalty kick in the very thin section, but doomed it was, and Edin Visca hammered it into the back Kalle Johnsson.
Surt show for FC Copenhagen - for they were so close to escape from Istanbul with a draw.

FC Copenhagen was considering not to put up the match in Istanbul.
It told manager Stale Solbakken to 6’eren before the Europa League 1/8-finals of the Turkish of these.
the Norwegian was highly surprised that UEFA had not intervened and cancelled the fight as a result of coronakrisen.
- UEFA runs strongly from their responsibilities in all sorts of ways. They close their eyes, said Solbakken, who without hesitation replied yes, when he was asked about whether the FCK had considered to be gone.
Solbakken expressed great respect for the Spanish Getafe, who refused to go to Milan to meet Inter.
But who the FCK managers pointed out the liver, the spaniards are not in the same degree as FCK of the revenues from european football.
He could see double standards in it, but called it a difficult dilemma with the thought of the consequences that the FCK could be hit by, if they had refused to go on the pitch in Istanbul.
After the purge reiterated an outraged Solbakken over the television station of his severe criticism of UEFA and hoped that it would get a sequel - which he, however, doubted.
It will probably be the loudest for him.
