welcome opponents Randers
. Full predictions, stats & game poll for the FC København v Randers match are shown here - as well as the best betting odds.
FC København will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-4 Superliga victory against Lyngby BK. For FC København, the goals were scored by Rasmus Falk (33'), Mohammed Daramy (73'), Pep Biel (86') and Karlo Bartolec (94'). Magnus Warming (71') was the scorer for Lyngby BK.
It’s been seldom in recent games where FC København have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Byens Hold have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 8 goals on the way.
Ahead of this clash, FC København have not been beaten in the league by Randers in their previous 10 games. A decent run, indeed.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Hobro IK in Superliga competition, Randers and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one. Edgar Babayan (36') scored for Hobro IK.
It has become apparent that Randers have failed to get amongst the goals over their last 6 encounters, recording the poor return of just 4. In those fixtures, Hestene have also seen the collective goal tally of opposing teams equal 7. It will be interesting to see if that trend can be continued on in this game.
Taking a look at their past results, Randers:
- are winless against FC København when they have played them away from home in the previous 8 league games. An awful away record.
- are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings going back to 03/12/2016 reveals that these encounters have ended in disappointment for Randers. They have not managed to register any wins whatsoever while FC København have simply been better than them, beating them in 100 per cent of those games where they have faced each other.
A sum of 17 goals were shared by the two clubs during those clashes, with 16 for Byens Hold and 1 created by Hestene. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.83.
The last league encounter between the two was Superliga match day 6 on 16/08/2019 when it ended Randers 0-1 FC København. The referee was Mads-Kristoffer Kristoffersen.
Team News: FC København
Nicolai Boilesen (Knee injury), Guillermo Varela (Unknown), Dame N'Doye (Knee injury), Nicolai Boilesen (Knee injury), Jonas Wind (Knee injury) and Viktor Fischer (Groin strain) are not available for København manager Ståle Solbakken. Michael Santos cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, Byens Hold may well use the 4-4-2 formation this time, utilising Karl-Johan Johnsson, Pierre Bengtsson, Andreas Bjelland, Victor Nelsson, Guillermo Varela, Jens Dalsgaard Stage, Rasmus Falk Jensen, Zeca, Pep Biel, Mikkel Kaufmann and Mohammed Daramy.
Team News: Randers
It’s our belief that Hestene seem most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation by sending out Patrik Carlgren, Björn Kopplin, Simon Piesinger, Erik Marxen, Jesper Lauridsen, Frederik Lauenborg, Vito Hammershøj-Mistrati, Andre Romer, Mathias Greve, Alhaji Kamara and Emil Riis Jakobsen.
We’re thinking that Randers have the ability to get a goal against this FC København team, however it isn’t expected to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end. Our tip is for a narrow 2-1 win for FC København at full-time. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
