Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, who spent a season on loan at Juventus, has said that he feels his former club will not be able to get anything from their Champions league match against FC Copenhagen.

Danish striker Bendtner is supporting the club from his country despite Copenhagen being rank outsiders to finish in the third place. They been very disappointing so far in their Champions League group, but this is largely because of the opponents like Real Madrid and Galatasaray.

Even Juventus have been doing poorly up until now, but they will be giving their all in this match since this could be their final opportunity to remain in contention for the final qualification spot. Galatasaray will be taking on Real Madrid and they are most probably going to suffer a defeat in the match. A victory for Juventus from their encounter against Copenhagen will help them move above the Turkish club in the table.

Only the top two teams qualify for the knockout stages, but the top spot has already been sealed by the impressive Madrid. Unibet reckon that Juventus are favourites to take the second spot, though all the clubs still have a chance.

"FCK must have a very good day to bring something back from Turin, but it can be done. FCK must be compact and really have a strong defence throughout the game. They will get chances, but I think most will come from set-pieces or free-kicks. FCK have proven themselves and you absolutely must not write them off," said Bendtner. Despite spending a season at Turin, the Danish striker failed to score a single goal for the club. He has returned to Arsenal this season, but a move is widely expected in January or in the summer.

Bendtner feels that Copenhagen have to be extremely compact in defence in order to do well against a Juventus team that has the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in attack.
