Odense BK will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 2-1 Superliga Play-Offs defeat in their last game at the hands of AGF Aarhus.
The only scorer from Odense BK was Kasper Larsen (56'). Bror Blume (45') and Patrick Mortensen (47') scored for AGF Aarhus.
De Stribede have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets recently, although they have also done enough to score goals themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, De Stribede have conceded in 5 of them as well as scoring in 6 of those matches. Let’s find out whether or not that trend will be continued on in this game.
After tasting defeat last time out to Manchester United in Europa League competition, FC Copenhagen will be aiming to make amends here.
Manchester United had 26 attempts on goal with 14 of them on target. Bruno Fernandes (95') scored for Manchester United.
During their 6 latest matches, Ståle Solbakken's FC Copenhagen have fired home a total of 8 times - giving them the goals per game average of 1.33.
Head to head
An inspection of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 05/08/2018 shows that these encounters have been a source of anguish for Odense BK. They have not managed to register any victories whatsoever whereas FC Copenhagen have simply been better than them, running out winners in 100 per cent of those games where they have faced each other.
A total of 21 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 4 from De Stribede and 17 being from FCK. That’s an average goals per game of 3.5.
The last league meeting between these clubs was Superliga match day 20 on 16/12/2019 when it finished FC Copenhagen 2-1 Odense BK.
The match was refereed by Jørgen Daugbjerg Burchardt.
Team News: Odense BK
Odense BK boss Jakob Michelsen has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game with a completely healthy squad to choose from.
It seems likely that De Stribede could use the 3-5-2 system for this one with Oliver Christensen, Marco Lund, Kasper Larsen, Jeppe Tverskov, Jørgen Skjellvik, Jens Jakob Thomasen, Troels Klove, Mads Frøkjær-Jensen, Oliver Lund, Issam Jebali and Max Fenger.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
From a largely full-strength group of players, there’s only a single fitness problem for the FC Copenhagen gaffer Ståle Solbakken to be concerned about. Nicolaj Thomsen (Shoulder fracture) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that FCK seem likely to play in a 4-4-2 lineup, choosing Karl-Johan Johnsson, Guillermo Varela, Karlo Bartolec, Andreas Bjelland, Pierre Bengtsson, Pep Biel, Zeca, Jens Dalsgaard Stage, Rasmus Falk Jensen, Mohammed Daramy and Jonas Wind.
We feel that Odense BK will have to play well to hit the back of the net against this FC Copenhagen side who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’ve gone for a very even match with a 0-1 winning score for FC Copenhagen when the full-time whistle blows.
Hoping for a good game.
