Hobro vs Randers
Date: Saturday, 5th August 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: DS Arena.
Randers will finally have an easier fixture in the fourth round of Superligaen after playing the likes of SonderjyskE, Midtjylland and Copenhagen so far in the season.
However, Hestene will have to work hard to gain their first win of the campaign since the league’s newcomers Hobro will come into the game in high spirits after holding the defending champions to a goalless draw last weekend at Telia Parken.
Thomas Thomasberg was thrilled with his team’s fine defensive display against the strongest side in the country and he will certainly be looking to build on that performance and pick up points in fixtures to come.
On the other side, we must state that the hosts have failed to find the back of the net in consecutive fixtures with AGF and Copenhagen after Miklkelsen and Antipas found the target in the first game of the season (2-1 win over Helsingor).
Olafur Kristjansson’s side opened the new season with a positive goalless draw at the visit to SonderjyskE, but they then suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Copenhagen and Midtjylland in following two games.
Hestene showed strong attacking displays in pre-season friendlies and it is only a matter of time when Marvin Pourie, Mayron George and Nikola Djurdjic will start delivering up front.
Hobro vs Randers: Head to head
The head to head stats entirely favour Randers who have won seven of 11 meetings with Hobro.
It is interesting to note that only a single of the last five H2H encounters between the two sides offered the BTTS option.
Hobro vs Randers: Prediction
We expect yet another close game to be decided by one or none goals. The visitors should be able to keep their net untouched against the newcomers as the 0-1 scoreline seems to be the most realistic of the outcomes here.
