Kobenhavn won the Danish Superliga title for the second year running. The league title is their 12th since the club was founded in 1992 and sixth since 2009.

Danish Super League standings for season 2015/2016.

Bookmakers favor Kobenhavn

Experts are generally in agreement that Kobenhavn will again win the Danish championship, with Brondby and Midtjylland as their main rivals. Manager Stale Solbakken's side have won the league and cup double for the last two seasons and they are big favourites for more success this campaign. Thay lost just twice in the 2016/17 as they marched to the title with a massive 22 points in front of Brondby, with Lyngby a further four points adrift.

Midtjylland have had a busy summer in the transfer market as they bid to shape a squad to challenge Kobenhavn. Brondby's hopes of a first title since 2005 rest firmly on the shoulders of Finnish striker Teemu Pukki. The 27-year-old scored 29 goals last season and he will be relied on for more goals during the new campaign. First Division champions Hobro have returned to the top flight after a one year absence, and they will hope to make their mark alongside fellow newly-promoted Helsingor who are back in the Danish Super League for the first time since the 1936/37 season.
