AGF vs Nordsjaelland
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Sunday, 22 July 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park, Arhus.
AGF held the reigning champions Midtjylland to a 1-1 draw on the opening day and they will be hoping to capitalize on such result and make another upset on Sunday when they play host to Nordsjaelland.
The visitors also drew 1-1 in the maiden round of the new season, but such score is regarded as a slip-up in their case, given the opposition involved the league newcomers Esbjerg.
Nordsjaelland were a major attacking force in the previous term of Superligaen.
They were away from the title challenge, but they came third at the end of the season and you just can’t underestimate such team which suffered very little squad changes in between two campaigns.
AGF vs Nordsjaelland: Head-to-head
If we are to judge by the most recent head to head record, these two sides should produce a true goal fest on Sunday.
The Over 2.5 gals FT & BTTS pick landed in all of last five head to head games.
Nordsjaelland bagged eight goals in last three matches with De Hvide.
Overall, the Wild Tiers were much more successful over the course of history, winning 18 and losing 10 of 35 outings against AGF.
Teams have two wins apiece in last four H2H games.
AGF vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
It is interesting to note that the bookies see AGF as 2.10 favourites for the win here even though the quality is no doubt on the Wild Tigers’ side.
The problem for the visitors might be fatigue, though, as they played Northern Irish Cliftonville on Thursday evening (2-1 win after a second-half comeback).
They are also to face Swedish Allsvenskan leaders AIK next Thursday in the second round of Europa League qualifications.
Nonetheless, we still see a big value in backing the visitors at least not to lose at the 1.75 odds. Obviously, the main betting recommendation is concerned with goals as we’0ll go for the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS with higher stakes at the odds of 2.05.
