Randers vs FC Helsingor
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Wednesday, 28 February 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: BioNutria Park Randers (Randers).
Both Randers and FC Helsingor have been struggling badly in this term of Superligaen ahead of their midweek’s clash which has all the ingredients of a relegation six-pointer at this stage. The two teams are locked on points holding bottom two spots in the division and a loss here could likely mean the farewell to the elite class football for any of these two likes.
The Horses will head into the game in somewhat higher spirits as they have avoided defeats in last two league outings, unlike their counterparts who have lost all of three league fixtures in 2018. Additionally, the visitors have conceded as many as six goals in each of away losses to OB and Brondby revealing way too many holes at the back after the winter break.
Randers have had a dreadful campaign in the first half of the season, but the arrival of Rasmus Bertelsen on the bench seems to have turned a corner for them. This can particularly be stated for their defensive performances which have been drastically improved of late and Randers have actually shipped only a single goal in last two league outings against Hobro and Horsens.
Randers vs FC Helsingor: Head-to-head
This will only be the third head to head encounter between the two teams, following FC Helsingor’s recent promotion to the elite class.
Helsingor did take advantage of the momentum to pick up the victory when the two sides met in this term of Superligaen, back in late-August last year (2-0 at Helsingor Stadion).
Prior to that clash, the teams have locked horns back in DBU Pokalen’s 2015/16 term when Randers took a 0-2 victory on the road.
Randers vs FC Helsingor: Prediction
The hosts have been much more consistent at the back lately and we do believe that their defensive line will make the difference and help them escape the rock-bottom of the standings.
FC Helsingor have picked up league low single point in last nine league matches on the road and we just have to back the home win as the main betting option here, set at the 1.55 odds.
