Brondby vs FC Helsingor
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Sunday, 25 February 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Brondby Stadion (Brondby).
Brondby will be looking to make up for the last weekend’s slip up when they were held to a 1-1 draw by AaB away at Aalborg Portland Parl. Drengene Fra Vestegnen are now three points shy of the table-toppers Midtjylland who have defeated the reigning champions Copenhagen 3-1 at home last time out.
A win over the newly-promoted FC Helsingor side is thus a must for Alex Zorniger and his side who have generally gotten off to a decent start after the break beating Lyngby 1-3 on the road two weeks ago.
FC Helsingor are in a very tough situation after losing back-to-back fixtures to OB and Horsens conceding as many as eight goals in the process. They now sit only a single point above the rock-bottomed Randers and they head into the clash with the league’s heavyweights with super limited ambitions.
Christian Lonstrup’s side has been struggling badly on travels so far in the season and they have picked up league low single point from previous seven games on the road. The defensive line has experienced the strength of a higher division football last time out when FC Helsingor shipped six goals in a demolishing loss to OB and they might feel the same destiny here at Brondby Stadion.
Brondby vs FC Helsingor: Head-to-head
This will only be the third ever head to head encounter between the two teams given that FC Helsingor are enjoying their debut season in the elite class.
Teams did meet each other back in 2011 when Brondby took a demolishing 0-4 victory in the DBU Pokalen clash.
This term’s meeting saw only a narrow 0-1 win for Drengene Fra Vestegnen at Helsingor Stadion.
Brondby vs FC Helsingor: Prediction
Brondby have won four and drawn one of last five league ties at home netting two or more goals in each of the games along the way.
Given Helsingor’s horrendous spell of form and the fact they’ve never scored a goal against Brondby, we truly do believe the hosts should win this by three or more goals without problems.
