After two years, Copenhagen managed to win the Danish Superliga. This club was dominant figure in their country in the 21st century and had some impressive performances in Europe as well. In 2020, they played in the Europa League quarterfinals, but the last time they were part of the the Champions League group stage was in 2016. This season, they begin European campaign in the Champions League play-offs and only one tie will separate them from playing in group stage.
In the Danish Superliga, Copenhagen will once again be the first favorite to win the title. Midtjylland and Brondby have big ambitions, but the quality is on the reigning champions side. Key player is winger Viktor Claesson, who came from Krasnodar in March. On the offensive side, Copenhagen has few more dangerous players. Pep Biel, Khouma Babacar and talented Nigerian winger Akinkunmi Amoo stand out in particular.
In a friendly match two weeks ago, Copenhagen demolished Feyenoord 7:0. Such a performance will be difficult to repeat against Horsens, but they expect to collect three points without much trouble. That would be the best possible way to start new season.
Horsens made an express return to the Danish Superliga after being relegated 14 months ago. They finished in first place in the second tier of Danish football and they will now once again compete against best clubs in their country. Before relegation in 2021, Horsens had a few solid seasons in first tier.
Looking at finances, Horsens has the smallest budget in the entire competition. Total value of their footballers is only six million euros, while Copenhagen as the most expensive team is worth over 60 millions. During the summer, Horsens were unable to bring in valuable players, but they signed Moses Opondo from Odense and Samson Iyede from second division side Fredericia.
In the opening round, Horsens will play at road against Copenhagen and that is the most difficult task they could have at the start of new season. It’s good for them that they have nothing to lose. They can play completely without pressure and in such circumstances, they may be able to make a surprise.

Copenhagen vs. Horsens Prediction
It’s always tricky to bet on anything in the first round of the championship. However, Copenhagen had a great preseason and they have the best team in Denmark, so they should be able to overcome the weak Horsens by two or more goals. Date and Time: 17.07.2022 16:00 CET
