FC Copenhagen return to Danish Superliga after a disappointing defeat in the first leg Champions League qualifier against Vardar Skopje.
The title holders has been underwhelming at the start of this season and are struggling to earn results at a consistent basis. They were held to a 1-1 draw at Telia Parken by Aalborg. But they managed to bounce back with a 3-0 win away at Randers. In between, there is a home defeat in the Champions League qualifiers to Slovakian outfit Zilna.
On the other hand, Hobro had mixed results in their return to Superliga after spending a season in the second division. They started their campaign with a 2-1 home win against Helsingor. But last week, they were defeated by Aarhus by a 2-0 margin.
It is a clear fact that Hobro do not relish away matches. In the two seasons between 2014/15 and 2015/16, they managed just 5 wins from 34 matches, with 23 defeats in their bag from remaining 29 matches.
Copenhagen vs Hobro: Head-to-head
Hobro managed to sprung occasional surprises on Copenhagen. In the 2015/16 season, they won 4-2 at home before getting relegated. Also they picked a win in their trip to Telia Parken in 2014. In between there are 4 wins in the name of Copenhagen.
Copenhagen vs Hobro: Prediction
Copenhagen are looking for the first home win of the season after having drawn 1-1 to Aarhus in the opening day and lost to Zilna in the Champions League tie. They will be left short handed here, having to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the Champions League reverse leg against Vardar. However, they are expected to have what it got to get over a side like Hobro, who are particular poor in away games.
