FC Copenhagen vs Odense
Denmark – Superliga
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Telia Parken (Copenhagen).
Stale Solbakken’s men, along with Midtjylland, raced to the top spot of the Superliga table, and have left the others crawling on the ground. The team has a 17-point lead with third-placed Brondby already.
The hallmark of their great season has surely been their eminent defense. They have limited the number of conceded goals below 1 per game, and at home, the team is still to concede ten in total.
The Striped, on the other hand, has been sweating profusely to get into the Championship group, but tougher fixtures have always blocked their long-awaited move.
The visit to Copenhagen is surely going to test the resolve of their frontline, as the home-defense has a reputation of closing down even minute spaces that might be taken advantage of.
FC Copenhagen vs Odense: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of last eleven games had under 2.5 goals.

- The last three fixtures produced three goals combined.
FC Copenhagen vs Odense: Prediction
The famed defense of FCK will come to play in this tie. Week after week, the backline has pulled off amazing performances with the strictest of consistency and made them the team with the least conceded goals in the league.
Copenhagen have the added bonus of playing at home, and the visitors have the reputation of switching themselves off at this venue, with just a single goal scored in their last four visits. They also presented clean sheets to this rival in six of the last seven times they met. Expect them to be kept at bay for at least till the half time.
An astonishing nine of the last eleven meetings between these sides ended with under 2.5 goals. So did, three of the last four at this stadium.
The hosts have no reason to stray from their time-tested successful strategy and will try to strangle the opposing forwards, and later attempt for the three points with one or two goals. Count on the game to have under three goals.
