AGF Aarhus vs Hobro IK
Date: Friday, 21st July 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park.
Hobro are off to a positive start in their return to the top tier of the Danish football as they saw off their last year’s 1st Division rivals FC Helsingor 2-1 on the home patch last weekend.
They will try and back up the fine kick off this Friday when they are about to open the Matchday No 2 with the visit to Ceres Park for the meeting with AGF.
Aarhus barely saved the elite class status last year and they are up for another tough season in Superligaen.
Glenn Riddersholm’s men began the new campaign with the home loss to Horsens showing certain signs of vulnerabilities in the defense.
The team had a successful pre-season run winning three and drawing one of their four matches, but they failed to bring the good form to the league competition.
The visitors seem determined to stay in the top flight for longer than a year as they kept most of their key figures from the last term of 1st Division.
Hobro won two and drew one of their pre-season friendly matches and they notched two goals in both last test with Viborg and the season opener with FC Helsingor.
AGF Aarhus vs Hobro IK: Head to head
The hosts have always been a tricky opponent for Hobro who won only a single of eight H2H matches with Aarhus.
However, each of their last two meetings ended with the same 1-1 scoreline which is kind of the scenario we are expecting to witness this Friday at Ceres Park.
AGF Aarhus vs Hobro IK: Prediction
The hosts are set as 8/11 favs to pick up their first win of the campaign, but we do not see any value there considering the lack of the quality in their defensive line.
We’ll thus go for the draw at 11/4 odds instead.
