HELSINGOR V ODENSE
FC Helsingør, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 2-4 1. division triumph over Fredericia.
Three or more goals per match were recorded in 5 of the past 6 meetings where FC Helsingør have taken part. Their opponents scored 8 of them in this period whereas FC Helsingør managed to get a total of 19.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Aalborg BK in Superliga action, Odense BK and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

Odense BK have been effective going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 9 times in their last 6 matches. While their manager Andreas Alm will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Odense BK can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same outings. Even so, it remains to be seen whether that trend shall persist here in this game.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
AB V FREDERECIA
AB, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-5 DBU Pokalen success against KFUM Roskilde.
