Lyngby vs Vendsyssel
Danish Superligaen Play-offs
Date: Thursday, 30 May 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Lyngby Stadion (Lyngby).
Lyngby finished the regular season on a high with a phenomenal thread of three successive wins. They thus took advantage from the slump in form both Naestved and Fremad Amager experienced in the last couple of weeks to break into top-three in the league ladder and enter promotional play-offs.
De Konegbla will thus have an opportunity to instantly return to the elite tier of the Danish football following last season’s relegation. To get back, they need to overtake Vendsyssel over two legs. The first one is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at Lyngby Stadion where the hosts will be eyeing a clean sheet win to boost up the momentum ahead of Sunday’s rematch.
Lyngby vs Vendsyssel: Head-to-head
The head to head record is all tied at 9 wins for each of teams coming into their 19th encounter.
Interestingly, none of past 18 H2H meetings between the two sides ended without a winner.
These two teams met each other at the exactly same stage of the competition last year when Vendsyssel advanced to top tier thanks to a pair of narrow wins (2-1 and 1-0).
VFF won five of last six meetings with Lyngby.
Lyngby vs Vendsyssel: Prediction
The visitors had a chance to avoid thus tie, but they fell 1-2 on aggregate to Horsens in the first round of the relegation play-offs. They came third from bottom at the end of the regular season and went on to win just one of six matches in the Group B of league’s relegation round).
Jens Askou’s men finished their respective group at third place (of four teams) behind untouchable Randers and AaB. It is obviously hard to compare the top flight with second division, but we have to mention Lyngby’s run of five wins, one draw and one defeat in seven home outings this year.
Lyngby kept their net untouched in four of these five wins and we feel Vendsyssel might likely struggle to create up front here. The visitors scored only one goal in last three games.
