Brondby vs Nordsjaelland
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Brondby Stadion, Brondby.
Brondby host Nordsjaelland in the derby of the Matchday on Sunday afternoon. The hosts complicated their situation seven days ago when they conceded a late equalizer away at Vejle, but substitute striker Mikael Uhre managed to bag the stoppage-time winner to secure a three-pointer for Drengene Fra Vestegnen.
Alex Zorniger’s men are now the only team with seven points from three opening games and they sit at the very top of the standings ahead of the clash with Nordsjaelland.
However, maintaining the fine spell of form will be anything but an easy task for the last term runners-up as the Wild Tigers head into this high on confidence after dispatching the current Allsvenskan leaders AIK 2-0 on aggregate in the second round of Europa League.
Kasper Hjulmand made it four wins and a draw in last five games across competitions and they will no doubt be a tough nut to crack for Brondby here.
Brondby vs Nordsjaelland: Head-to-head
The head to head stats completely speak in Brondby’s favour.
Drengene Fra Vestegnen won 28 and lost only 9 of 47 H2H encounters with Nordsjaelland.
Brondby won each of last three meetings with the Wild Tigers.
All of last five H2H games saw three or more goals scored as well as both teams on the scoresheet.
Brondby vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
The high-scoring trend in the most recent history of head to head games between these two sides could be interrupted here because of Nordsjaelland’s recent defensive form.
The Wild Tigers played ultra-attacking football last season, but they seem to have shifted priorities this time around as their defensive line was very tough to break down in last three matches.
You can have the Under 3.5 goals FT bet at the sky-high 1.80 odds, while Brondby are 1.72 to score less than three goals in the match.
Even though the hosts are set as 1.40 favourites to win, we’d advise you not to back Zorniger’s side here because the odds are just way too low if we know that the Wild Tigers won three on the trot coming into this tie.
