Randers vs Copenhagen
Date: Saturday, 22nd July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: BioNutria Park (Randers).
The Danish Superliga champions FC Copenhagen are not having the best of the starts to the 2017/18 season. It all started with the pre-season when they failed to pick up a win. They drew twice and lost one before entering the pitch for the Champions League qualifying match against FC Zilina at Slovakia.
Things looked better as Copenhagen brushed aside Zilina at their own turn by a 3-1 margin. But, this is followed by a 1-1 draw at home in the Danish Super Liga opener and then a defeat to Zilina in the return leg in front of their home fans.
Copenhagen boss Stale Solbakken can only hope his players will respond positively when coming up against one of their toughest Danish opponents in recent seasons. The confidence need a boost after managing just 1 win from 6 matches including friendlies this season.
On the other hand, Randers drew their opening league game away at Sonderjyske. Truth to be told, it is a good result at a ground that they haven’t won in the last five trips. Now they can hope on a big upset, sitting at home against the defending champions.
Randers are coming in good spirits. They had a good pre-season and won their 4 games, scoring 14 goals. The Superliga fixture will be a different proportion. But they will have the confidence to give a bitter blow to the defending champions.
Randers vs Copenhagen: Head-to-head
Copenhagen are unbeaten in the last five meetings against Randers with 3 wins and 2 draws. However, they haven’t won in their last five away trips to the BioNutria Park. The last two meetings at BioNutria Park are draws, with the corresponding fixture last season ending in a thrilling 2-2 scoreline. Randers have 2 wins during the period, settling for stalemates in the remaining 3.
Randers vs Copenhagen: Prediction
Copenhagen must improve a lot to get a positive result at this ground. Not only that they defeated Randers at BioNutria Park since 2012, they are also facing a team who are unbeaten in their last 6 home games in the Superliga.
Therefore, punters must expect Randers to give Copenhagen a tough time out there. There is little doubt that this match produce some goals at both ends.
