Esbjerg vs Randers
Denmark – Superliga
Date: Saturday, 4 August 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Blue Water Arena (Esbjerg).
Esbjerg have earned just one point in their first three Superliga outings and they host Randers still looking for their first win this term, coming into the match after thrillers losses to Vendsyssel and Midtjylland – where John Lammers’s men conceded a high total of six goals.
Randers, on the other hand, suffered a 0-2 loss to Brondby on the first day of the campaign but now come into the contest on the back of a 1-0 win over OB after also holding Horsens to a 1-1 draw on the road. They’ll now be very motivated to capitalize on the rivals woes and cause another upset at Blue Water Arena, after leaving unbeaten on both of their last two trips.
Hestene have been more solid at the back and although they’ve failed to cope with Brondby, we’ve seen them concede just one goal in their last two outings and this will be more promising for the travelling fans. They have had more troubles on the road but Thomas Thomasberg will be sure to lift their spirits with the home sides’ woes of recent.
Esbjerg vs Randers: Head-to-head
Esbjerg have beaten Randers just once in their last five outings, snatching a 0-2 win at BioNutria Park Randers in December 2016.
We’ve seen two goalless draws in the sides’ last two head-to-head clashes.
We’ve come to get used to very narrow clashes between them, with just four goals seen in their last four matches.
Esbjerg vs Randers: Prediction
We will now back Randers to build on such records and snatch a point on the day as well, going for a good-looking Draw at 3.25. We have seen both sides struggle for consistency and the visitors do come in better shape, which does promise such a contest at Blue Water Arena too.
We don’t feel we’ll see many goals on the day either and Randers boast a solid defensive tally, as we go for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.80 – which could prove a generous banker bet at this point. We’ve seen two or fewer goals in all of the sides’ last four head-to-head clashes too!
