Odense vs Copenhagen
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Nature Energy Park.
Copenhagen made the Europa League Quarter-finals and put on a great challenge as they saw an exit in the hands of Man United (1-0). They haven’t really been able to bounce quickly and open their Superliga campaign after a shaky pre-season, where Stale Solbakken’s men saw a loss to Silkeborg (1-3) and a 2-2 draw against Lyngby.
Byens Hold have been scoring goals on the regular and will want to keep it up early in the new season too. They travel to Odense with a great history of success at this ground and we’ll certainly see them very motivated to keep it up. They’ll be aware of the challenge Midtjylland pose in a projected chase for the new title and a strong start will be crucial.
OB, on the other hand, come into the match after holding Midtjylland to a 2-2 draw on Monday. They saw three losses in a row beforehand despite finding the net on all three occasions, which will be more worrying. Indeed, the home side have struggled defensively and this could make all the difference once again.
Odense vs Copenhagen Head-to-head
The sides last met in May 2020, seeing a 2-2 draw in a friendly at Telia Parken.
Copenhagen bagged seven consecutive wins in head-to-head clashes beforehand, scoring two or more goals on four of the last five competitive occasions.
We’ve seen goals on both ends in all of the last three matchups, with a total of 12 goals.
Odense vs Copenhagen Prediction
We do feel Copenhagen will be able to put somewhat unconvincing displays we’ve seen lately behind them. They travel to Nature Energy Park as favorites to win and we’ll back them to turn an exciting game their way, going for an Away win at 1.80. OB could have trouble putting their defensive woes to side and this could be costly.
Still, we expect an exciting challenge from the home side. They have been scoring goals quite regularly and we see them as no sitting ducks on the day. With that in mind, we’re hoping for a high-scoring contest and we are backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1.80. We’ve been used to such games between the sides and this should make for another one in a row.
