F.C. København vs. HB Køge

In Football, SAS Liga on July 22, 2009 at 21:02

By Joe,


The reigning Danish champions, FCK, will be playing their first home game on Saturday in the SAS liga against HB Køge. The champions have already started their season 1 ½ weeks ago as their crushed the Serbian team, FC Mogren, 6-0 in their start to the 2nd round of the Champions League competition. Køge are one of the promoted clubs from the 1. Divison and their outlook is survival in the SAS liga.

F.C. København have not started well in the SAS liga. They lost their first game of the season 2-0 away to FC Nordsjælland last weekend which puts them firmly at the bottom of the league. This could all change if FCK was to beat Køge in Parken. The Danish Champions was in action in the mid week and they again destroyed FC Mogren in the 2nd leg with 6-0. Stale Solsbakken had somewhat a second team against Mogren and  gave a few players a rare start. Libor Sionko, Thomas Delaney, Morten Nordstrand and Dame N’Doye did well against FC Mogren and are in contention for another start on Saturday. Solsbakken will have his best players available and pressure will be on him to deliver a victory in Parken.  Canadian Atiba Hutchinson is available after returning from the Gold Cup.

New promoterd and newly established football club this year, HB Køge started their season with a draw against fellow promoted club, Silkeborg IF, in their premiere in the SAS liga. Køge are tipped as one of the team that could get relegated this season. They have not been very active in the transfer market and they saw 4 players leaving the club while signing  former FCK player, Nicklas Svendsen on a free transfer. Highly rated and one of their key players, Morten Nielson will have to show the way for the others in order for Køge take anything home from Parken.

F.C. København are firm favorites to beat the newly promoted Køge team. Solsbakken has a team with great amounts of depth in the squad. If they were to lose this home game then frustration could creep up as they are scheduled to play Stabæk in the 3rd round of the Champions League in the upcoming midweek games. Køge could well take advantage of the situation and should frustrate the champions by playing counter attacking football with an ultra defensive strategy. Solsbakken knows that Jesper Grønkjaer could be his savior, FCK should easily dispose Køge and Betsson is offering odds 1.14.
