Copenhagen, who finished the 16/17 season no less than 22 points clear of the chasing pack, may have run away with the league last season, but they’ve crashed back down to earth this time around. Denmark’s premier club currently find themselves sat in 4th position. Even a win here won’t move them into the top three, but they will still be looking to build momentum ahead of the run in.

If Copenhagen are having a bad season, then Helsingor’s campaign has been a disaster. The small club from one of Denmark’s eastern port cities have really struggled to stamp their mark on games and it’s fair to say that they’ve felt the pinch. Copenhagen might not be as strong as they’ve been in recent years, but this remains a very tough task for the struggling visitors, who’re currently bottom of the table.

Having beaten Helsingor with ease away from home, Copenhagen should come into this match full of confidence. The visitors have really struggled away from home, so this is a big opportunity for Copenhagen to dominate and secure a convincing win.

Playing away from home has been a massive issue for Helsingor this season. The visitors, who’ve accumulated a measly five points on their travels, have found it especially hard from a defensive point of view when playing on the road. They’ve conceded no less than 28 goals in 12 away matches and have found it very hard to keep things tight, especially of late. They may have drawn 0-0 away at Randers last time out, but too much shouldn’t be read into that. Prior to that draw, Helsingor conceded six two games in a row.

Although the season hasn’t gone quite as Copenhagen would’ve planned, they’ve remained a force to be reckoned with on home soil. Unsurprisingly, Ståle Solbakken’s side have scored plenty of goals at Parken Stadium. What’s more, they’ve also made light work of handing out heavy beatings to some of the lesser defensive sides, as they’ve beaten Lyngby (twice), Silkeborg, AGF and Randers by at least three goals. Against a team who’ve struggled, especially against teams who can pin them back like Copenhagen can, the hosts ought to fancy their chances of another high-scoring victory.

With a real disparity in quality likely to be evident from the word go on Monday evening, the hosts are backed to win in fine style. Backing ‘Copenhagen to Win -2 Handicap’ is the way to make this one pay.
