Nordsjaelland vs Silkeborg
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Thursday, 1 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Right to Dream Park (Farum).
Nordsjaelland could not hold on to the early lead away at Aalborg on Sunday when the Wold Tigers only drew 1-1 with the eighth-placed outfit. Kasper Hjulmand’’s men have thus only collected a single point from two away matches in 2018 (against SonderjyskE and AaB) to stay seven points shy of the second-placed Brondby.
Things have, however, been much better for the Wild Tigers at Right to Dream Park where they’ve won four and drawn one of last five league outings. Hjulmand’s side has been pretty efficient in the final third n the process netting at least two goals in all of their last six matches in their own backyard in Superligaen.
This trend could be continued on Thursday evening when Nordsjaelland are set to host Silkeborg. Nonetheless, we have to mention that the victory have been enjoying a hot run of form after the winter break having collected seven points in three league outings. Overall, Peter Sorensen’s men have lost two on the bounce on travels in Superligaen, which is a serious twist if we know that they’ve previously lost six on the trot away from JYSK Park.
To get the result here, Sorensen will have to find the way to stop Nordsjaelland’s midfielder Mathias Jensen who found the net in last two matches for the Wild Tigers.
