Champions League: “Copenhagen” and “Sevilla” draw, remain winless

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Copenhagen and Sevilla are winless in the Champions League after a 0-0 draw on Wednesday.

Both teams are in the bottom half of Group G with a point each. Manchester City lead the group with six points after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-1, who have three points.

Sevilla had most of the shots on goal against Copenhagen but were unable to capitalize on their chances.

Sevilla lost 4-0 at home to City and Copenhagen lost 3-0 in Dortmund in their opening group matches.

Copenhagen, making their first group stage appearance since 2016-17, are finding it hard to score at home. He is unbeaten in his last four home games in the group stage of the competition. In their last 13 home matches in the Champions League group stage, the team has lost just once, winning six and drawing six. The defeat came at the hands of Real Madrid, while Manchester United, Barcelona and Juventus were among the visitors who failed to win.

It was a special night for Sevilla midfielder Thomas Delaney, a fan favorite in Copenhagen before leaving for German side Werder Bremen in 2017. The Denmark international was applauded by the home crowd when he was substituted in the second half.

Sevilla, who picked up their first win of the season at the weekend against Espanyol, have failed to score in their last five European away games and are winless in their last seven away games in Europe without scoring in their last five. He has won just one of his last 10 Champions League matches.

Sevilla only won once in the group stage last season, at home to Wolfsburg. They have won just two of their last 16 away games in all competitions this year.
