Date: Monday, 6 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Blue Water Arena (Esbjerg).
Esbjerg are enjoying their best form in the last decade at this stage of the season. They won three and drew one of past four matches in the Championship Round. Such phenomenal streak of results saw them climb up to third place in the standings.
John Lammers’s men thus have the opportunity to secure the Europa League appearance for the first time in a while. Top three teams in Danish Superligaen get to feature European competitions next season.
EFB are now four points clear off fourth-placed OB after a huge 0-1 victory away at league heavyweights Brondby. They kept three successive clean sheets in the league and have a great chance to keep the ball rolling and maintain the winning thread here against Nordsjaelland who hold the last place in the Championship Round.

Nordsjaelland are not pulling up any trees coming into this tie at Blue Water Arena. The visitors are winless in six successive league fixtures. They claimed just one point from past four Superligaen rounds. The Wild Tigers conceded at least two goals in each of past four league games.
Esbjerg won five and drew two of last seven league games in front of the home crowd. They also won each of last two head to head encounters with Nordsjaelland. We just have to recognize the value in backing the home win at the sky-high 2.50 odds.
