SonderjyskE vs Randers
Denmark – Superleague
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick-off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Sydbank Park (Haderslev).
Sonderjyske has a score to settle against these visitors. Last season, both were pitted against each other in the European playoffs semifinal, but the hosts of the day had to accept defeat at the end of the two-legged game.
The first leg had ended in a 1-1 draw, but Randers hit back in the return feature with a thrilling 4-3 win, to progress to the final.
There, Randers once again made use of their home leg and took the chance to square up against Brondby for a berth in Europe. Their momentum almost took them to the dream-land and had a 0-2 lead in the second half, but the latter kept cool under pressure and slotted past the opposing defense four goals in the next forty minutes.
At present, the objectives of both will be to avoid the relegation-round finish they had to settle for the last time, and even more so for the guests, as they missed the cut-off by just two points.

SonderjyskE vs Randers Prediction
As said earlier, both had to scramble to keep themselves alive in the competition towards the end of their campaign the last season. The primary aim for either will be to avoid that last-minute rush. With their home advantage, Sonderjyske will try to open their account early itself, and they will be motivated by the fact that this is an opportunity to exact revenge on these set of players who denied them a spot in the playoff finals.
Moreover, the last Randers won here was in 2013, and they have failed to keep their nets clean of goals in the last six h2h ties, and in 18 of the last 22 clashes at this stadium. As such, count on the home team to break the deadlock first.
But do not await a one-sided affair. Randers has shown their mettle by almost getting to Europe. They also have the confidence of trumping these rivals in the playoffs, and they are on a scoring streak in their last eight match-ups, and in their last four on the road.
Backing the BTTS option should provide good returns.
