Kobenhavn Preview – Can Kobenhavn follow up last week’s win with another victory?

Kobenhavn won their 13th Danish title last season and already have their sights on the next one. This campaign started with a 3-2 win away to OB last weekend. It was a win that was achieved in the most dramatic of ways having went two goals down. The impressive Dame N’Doye scored two of those three goals to get his season off to a great start. The Senegalese striker scored 22 in the league last time around and combined for nearly 50 with striker partner Robert Skov. The duo not only have further domestic success in their sights, but also the aim of reaching the group stages of the Champions League.

The vastly experienced Stale Solbakken has been in charge for over 10 years across two different spells. He’s led previous teams to the group stages but knows the domestic league remains the primary objective. Last year’s title was won with something to spare in the end, by a margin of 11 points. In that success they lost only two games at home, and one of those came after the title was won. With the first leg of their second round Champions League qualifier to come next midweek Solbakken will be keen to go into that on the back of a second league win of the season. With the game coming so early in their season it’s unlikely there will be much rotation and a strong line-up is expected from the home team.

AGF Preview – Are AGF good enough to get a win against the champions away from home?

AGF may be one of Denmark’s oldest clubs but success has been a premium in recent times. A seventh placed finish, essentially, last season did qualify them for the Europa League playoffs, where they were undone at the semi-final stage. It did demonstrate a strong finish to the campaign, though, and something for David Nielsen’s men to build on this term. Monday’s 1-1 draw away to Hobro was not the worst of results but it’s perhaps a game they would have hoped for a win. It now means they travel away once again but this time against the champions. A share of the points on this occasion would be seen in a much more positive light.

With the way in which AGF finished last season it’s reasonable to assume they will be targeting European football for next year. The format of the Danish league allows clubs who finish further down the table to have that opportunity. Nielsen will be aware of how competitive the top half is and his team is sure to get further evidence of that tomorrow. A positive performance and result would certainly bolster their confidence though.

Key-Facts – Kobenhavn v AGF

  • This is Kobenhavn’s first home game of the new season having won their opening game away from home last week
  • AGF would have been frustrated with their opening day draw away to Hobro on Monday evening
  • Dame N’Doye notched two goals last weekend having scored 22 times in the previous campaign

Kobenhavn v AGF Betting Advice

Unsurprisingly this has been a fixture that Kobenhavn have dominated in recent years. You have to go all the way back to August 2009 for AGF’s last win against the team from the Danish capital. The teams have played each other 23 times since and that has been split with 13 wins and 10 draws. There’s no doubt, under the circumstances, that the visitors would settle for a share of the points again. With nine wins in the last 10 meetings for Kobenhavn that does seem unlikely.

The prospect of playing in the Champions League will be exciting for the hosts but they have to focus on this game first of all. Their home record last season was excellent and they will be hoping to get this year’s home campaign off to a winning start. AGF are capable at their best but they could just be facing Kobenhavn and their potent strikeforce at just at the wrong time. I expect a comfortable home win in the Danish capital on Friday.
