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.
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. Latest matches: FC Copenhagen

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.
