The Copenhagen vs. Horsens match will be played on Monday, July 16, at the Telia Park, Copenhagen. This is the Danish Superliga first round match. In the previous season, Copenhagen finished 4th with 58 points (27 less than champions Midtjylland!), while Horsens finished 6th with 40 points.


  • Copenhagen won only one out of their four friendly games during the summer. More importantly, they defeated Kups in the Europa League qualifiers a few days ago. The match was played in Finland, and the result was 1:0.
  • Horsens also won only one friendly match during the summer break. In their last two games they played, Horsens conceded six and scored only one goal.


In their previous ten meetings, Copenhagen recorded six victories, Horsens had only one win, while three games ended in a draw. In the last two matches they played, Copenhagen recorded two victories and we saw over 4.5 goals.


Copenhagen had a dreadful 2017/18 season and they want to forget it as soon as possible. The best Danish club will try to return to the top right away. For that, Copenhagen will have to start the season strongly, with a statement win against Horsens. Horsens is traditionally an easy opponent for the former champions and they'll try to capitalize on that. On the other hand, the second leg against Kups is only three days away, so coach Solbakken might try to mix the things up in the opening game of Danish Superliga.

Horsens had an underwhelming friendly campaign during the summer, so their confidence level before the clash against Copenhagen is certainly low. They will try to avoid a defeat in the upcoming game, and settle for a point. Horsens can focus solely on the league since they are not playing European qualifiers.
