Viborg – Home form points to strong showing?

Currently, only FC Midtjylland have a longer ongoing unbeaten run (27 games vs Randers) against a particular opponent than FC Copenhagen do against Viborg, the latter seeking their first head-to-head victory over the 14-time Danish champions since 2004 (D5 L16). This goes some way to highlighting the size of their task Sunday. Though there is reason to believe they can do the previously impossible.

Viborg, seventh last season, would open their 2022-23 Superliga account with a 2-1 home win over Aalborg. And while this was swiftly followed by a 3-1 defeat away to Aarhus, that is now seven league games (W4 D3) without incurring a loss at their Viborg Stadium in central Jutland. In fact, they have only lose one of their last ten at home – though that was a 2-0 scoreline against the champions, FC Copenhagen.

Key Stat: Viborg have scored in all seven of their previous Superliga home fixtures, last failing to do so in a 2-0 loss vs FC Copenhagen in February.


Draw & Under 2.5 Goals



FC Copenhagen – Response of champions?

Good teams rarely stay down for long, and the reigning Superliga champions showcased all of this last time out in a 3-1 victory away at Aalborg. Bouncing back immediately from their opening round loss, a shock 1-0 scoreline at home to newly-promoted AC Horsens. It means they have now lost just once across the last seven top-flight matches (W4 D2 L1), winning three of the last four.

They were made to sweat a little for those three points though. A seemingly comfortable 2-0 lead became a one-goal game with 11 minutes remaining, with FCK not adding the insurance policy of a third goal until the fifth minute of stoppage-time. Jess Thorup’s side have now won their last two away league games (both by a two-goal margin), after failing to win any of their previous three away from Parken Stadium.

Key Stat: FC Copenhagen have scored in eight of nine prior Superliga away matches, the exception a 0-0 draw against last season’s runners-up, FC Midtjylland.

Viborg Vs FC Copenhagen Betting Advice

Although FCK’s record in this fixture, home and away, is exceptionally good, I do think Viborg are capable of putting up a fair amount of resistance to the champions. Sunday’s hosts have only tasted defeat twice in 14 Superliga fixtures (W6 D6 L2), going unbeaten in seven at home, and while most of those games were in last season’s Relegation Group, that ability to consistently avoid losing only breeds confidence.


Viborg Vs FC Copenhagen – Key Facts:

  • The last time Viborg registered a Superliga victory over FC Copenhagen was August 2004 (D5 L16 since). Viborg would, however, avoid defeat two of the past three times the sides met in Viborg; the pair drawing 1-1 and 0-0 at this venue in 2016.
  • Seven of the last eight head-to-heads between the teams, including all of the four previous with Viborg on hosting duties, produced Under 2.5 Goals.
  • Viborg haven’t lost a home league game in seven (W4 D3). However, the last visiting team to depart with three points were FC Copenhagen, courtesy of a 2-0 win in February earlier this year.


FCK would also end the previous term in unconvincing form on their travels, where they won only once across the last four said fixtures. They did, though, inflict the only loss upon Viborg here at Energi Viborg Arena since February. Nevertheless I believe the hosts can keep this competitive. Each of the past four meetings in Viborg saw Under 2.5 Goals, a bet which landed in six of eight prior FCK away league games.
