AGF vs Horsens
Date: Friday, 14th July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park.
AGF and Horsens are set to open the new Superliga season this Friday at Ceres Park.
Both sides have been pretty impressive in the pre-season and they will clearly want to bring the fine form to competitive games at the start of the new campaign.
The hosts will come into the new season with much higher ambitions as the team kept their key figures signing a couple of very interesting players at the same time.
The acquisition list includes the names of Tobias Sana (from Malmo), Adama Guira (from Lens) and Frederik Moller (from Horsens).
Aarhus picked up a comfortable 2-0 win in their last test against Silkeborg last weekend.
The visitors showed plenty of holes in the defense at the start of pre-season as they conceded as many as eight goals in back-to-back defeats to SonderjyskE and Randers.
However, the narrow 1-0 win over Midtjylland (who played with the mixed lineup) will certainly instil some confidence into Bo Henriksen’s men ahead of the opening Superliga fixture.
AGF vs Horsens: Head to head
Goals are guaranteed in the season opening if we are to judge by the head to head record between the two teams.
Each of their last six H2H meetings saw the option of both teams scoring, including the last 16 round of DBU Pokalen match played in mid-March this year.
AGF claimed a 1-3 win on the road which was their second consecutive victory over Horsens.
AGF vs Horsens: Prediction
The bookies seem to have overestimated the hosts pricing them at 8/13 to pick up the victory in the season opener.
We do not see the value there as we’ll rather back goals at much more attractive odds.
