Esbjerg vs Vendsyssel
Date: Saturday, 21 July 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Blue Water Arena (Esbjerg).
Two recently promoted sides, Esbjerg and Vendsyssel, are going to face each other in the 2nd round of Danish Superliga.
Home side opened the season with an away draw against Nordsjaelland which was a pretty surprising result. They finished on the 2nd spot in the 1st Division and Anders Dreyer and the lads were the most efficient side in the competition.
On the other hand, their defence was one of the best in the league as they allowed 36 goals. However, they haven’t been playing very well at home ground as they suffered six defeats in front of their crowd. Esbjerg are back in the top flight after spending just one season in the lower rank league.
Vendsyssel finished their last campaign on the 3rd spot and they managed to secure the place in the promotion playoffs with a victory in the final round. With double victory against troubled Lyngby, they found their place in the top flight.
The visitors were pretty efficient in front of the oppositions’ goal, while their defending wasn’t too tight. they’ve been playing very well at away grounds as Jens Askou’s side suffered only three defeats and managed to get back home with a win seven times. They opened the current campaign with a victory over Odense.
Esbjerg vs Vendsyssel: Head-to-head
Esbjerg were more successful in the friendlies of these two sides, but in the official matches, Vendsyssel celebrated two victories in three occasions. Their clashes are always very efficient and both teams are more than capable of scoring.
Esbjerg vs Vendsyssel: Prediction
This is going to be a very interesting clash and we are going to give a slight advantage to the hosts. Esbjerg should be able to book their first victory of the season in front of the home crowd.
It is natural that we try with high number of goals or at least with goals in both nets as these two sides have been involved in high scoring matches lately. In their last four encounters, both teams managed to find the back of the oppositions’ net and we believe the same will happen in this one.
