Esbjerg vs Hobro Prediction & Match Preview

Esbjerg vs Hobro
Danish Superligaen
Date: Friday, 19 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Blue Water Arena (Esbjerg).

Esbjerg do not look intimidated by the higher division football at the start of the Superligaen campaign. They well confounded pre-season expectations by winning 5 of 12 matches which is enough for a superb 4th place at this stage of the competition.

The latest of successes came just before the international break when John Lammers’ troops dispatched Horsens 1-2 on the road. The defensive line once again offered a superior showing, while the job at the other end was done by Adnane Tighadouini and Adrian Petre. The Dutch manager Lammers can generally be thrilled with his side’s defensive defensive performances as the team allowed only two goals in last four matches.

Esbjerg kept clean sheets in three of last four league games at home, the 0-2 defeat to heavyweights Copenhagen being the game that interrupted the run.

Both teams were on the scoresheet in all of last six head to head affairs.

Esbjerg vs Hobro: Prediction

Hobro got off to a much slower start to the new season. They still hold the very foot of the standings being three points shy of 13th-plkaced Vendsyssel in spite of beating Nordsjaelland 3-2 two weeks ago.

Quincy Antipas was the man who inspired team’s second win of the season with a brace at DS Arena. However, it’s been a completely different story for Hobro away from home where they lost three and drew three of six matches so far in the season.

Esbjerg were much more consistent throughout the campaign and we see the value in backing their victory at 1.95 odds here.
