Esbjerg vs Nordsjaelland
Denmark – Superliga
Date: Saturday, 29 February 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Blue Water Arena (Esbjerg)
The reverse fixture was won by the Wild Tigers, so Esbjerg will be hoping to give a fitting reply at home. The latter is on cloud nine after pulling off a stunning 1-0 win at home against second-placed FC Copenhagen.
Nordsjaelland have an active 3 match win streak in the league and not lost a match this year. They have always been second best at this ground against the hosts. But they have a golden opportunity to get 3 points since the hosts have been struggling in recent matches.
Esbjerg vs Nordsjaelland: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nordsjaelland has one win and 2 defeats in 5 previous meetings against Esbjerg.
- The hosts are unbeaten at home against this opposition since 2009.
- Their last meeting ended as a goalless draw at this ground.
- Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of the last 5 head to head matches between them.
Esbjerg vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
This has been an easy matchup for the hosts for over 10 years now. They remain unbeatable for the Wild Tigers since 2009. But they have a 3 match win streak going on in the league. Also away from home, they have not lost the last 3 matches as well. Even though the hosts have won against Copenhagen, they had a 4 match winless run with 3 defeats going on before that. So I am backing the away side to win here and break the jinx at this ground.
Despite being winless in home games recently, Esbjerg has scored in most of those matches. They even broke one of the best defense in the league last time around. Nordsjaelland have scored 42 goals in 22 matches and are the top scorers in the league. So we can expect a goal-fest with both sides getting in the score sheet.
