Randers vs Hobro
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Sunday, 18 February 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: BioNutria Park Randers (Randers).
Randers could not do much to avoid a disaster eight days ago when they opened the year with a demolishing 5-1 loss away at the reigning champions Copenhagen. The Horses have thus continued their dismal campaign in this tern of Superligaen as they sit at the very foot of the league standings after four consecutive defeats.
Can the dreadful run of form be terminated on Sunday when Rasmus Bertelsen is about to make his debut on the bench in front of the home crowd? The opposition is just perfect for the rebound since Hobro have moved their poor spell of form from the finish of the last year into 2018 by falling 0-1 at home to the likes of AGF last weekend.
Overall, it has been a rather successful campaign for Thomas Thomasberg and his men who are still within the top six in the league ladder in spite of the mentioned losses. Given that Hobro have just recently joined the elite, we have to respect their performances in the first half of the season. Nonetheless, the team’s form has seen a massive slide of late with them losing three and drawing one of last four league matches.
Away from home, Hobro have conceded three goals in each of back-to-back defeats to OB and Nordsjaelland in late-November/early December.
Randers vs Hobro: Head-to-head
Randers have been much more successful historically winning 7 and losing only 3 of 12 H2H matches.
At home, Randers have won five, drawn one, and lost one of seven games against Hobro.
Hobro have come on top when the two teams met in this term of Superligaen (2-0 in early-August last year at DS Arena).
Randers vs Hobro: Prediction
Neither of the two sides have reasons to be satisfied with their latest defensive showings which is why we believe that backing a high-scoring affair just has to be the way to go on Sunday.
The value bet is Hobro to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.75.
