Hobro vs FC Copenhagen Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds
The new Danish Superliga season continues this week and on Monday night we have a clash between Hobro and FC Copenhagen to enjoy. Both teams come into this match looking for their first points of the season following a disappointing start. Hobro won the Danish First Division in 2016/17 and avoided relegation last season. They will be hoping to avoid the drop again in this campaign.
FC Copenhagen won the Superliga in 2016/17 but finished short last season and will be looking to put that right, starting with a win in this game.
Hobro started their 2018/19 season with a 3-1 defeat at Vejile. It was not a great start to the new season and Hobro came into the new campaign having failed to win any of their 3 friendly matches in preseason.
There were defeats at Viborg and home to Vendsyssel and a draw at home to Aab. Having finished last season strongly to avoid the drop, Hobro will want to get their new season started with a big win to build some confidence.
Home form was good towards the end of last season, with Hobro winning their last 3 games. They scored 8 goals across the 3 matches, conceding three.
FC Copenhagen Form
FC Copenhagen started the season in very disappointing fashion, losing out to Horsens 2-1 at home. They will point to the fact they had Europa League qualifying games either side of that match but that’s set to continue in the next round.
FC Copenhagen have played 3 competitive games this season, defeating KuPS 1-0 away from home in the Europa League, losing at home to Horsens and then being held to a 1-1 draw at home by KuPS in the Europa League.
Therefore, FC Copenhagen may be happy this game is away, as they have struggled at home this season. However, away form in the Superliga is not great and last season, FC Copenhagen won only one of their last 5 league matches, conceding 8 goals.
Jonas Damborg is the main fitness concern for Hobro ahead of this game and the experienced midfielder may be forced to sit this one out.
Mikael Antonsson is close to a return to the team for FC Copenhagen and could feature at some stage in the game. Laszlo Koteles is also back in contention.
Top Betting Tips & Prediction
FC Copenhagen struggled away towards the end of last season and have made a poor start to the current league campaign. Hobro will be targeting home games as their best chance of picking up points again this season and can be backed at 18/5 with Ladbrokes to win the game.

Pal Alexander Kirkevold finished as the top goal scorer in the Superliga last season and the Hobro striker is 4/1 with William Hill to score the first goal of the match.
