SonderjyskE vs Randers FC
Date: Saturday, July 15th, 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Sydbank Park, Haderslev.
Sonderjyske will have the opening word of Superliga 2017/18 season on the home turf as they welcome Randers FC in Haderslev. Both sides are content with the preseason, so we will witness two motivated sides collide on Saturday.
The hosts finished 2016/17 season in the fourth position, but after the woeful displays in the Championship Group, they lost any chance to compete in UEFA competitions.
SønderjyskE faced three teams within their prep period. In the first friendly fixture, they beat Horsens with 0-3. Then they met Chicago Bridges in the meaningless match that ended 2-2.
SønderjyskE concluded their preseason with an impressive 6-2 victory over Esbjerg.
The team from Sydbank Park is aiming to repeat the last season’s success – reaching Championship Group.
Randers FC were on a verge of reaching Championship Group, but they had to settle for the seventh position as they were two points behind Nordsjaelland.
The visitors were more active in the preseason than SonderjyskE. In the opening fixture, they beat Skive with 3-0, followed by another victory against Vejle.
Randers are approaching the upcoming season opener with confidence. In addition to Skive and Vejle, Randers FC beat Horsens and Thisted FC. The first ended 5-0, while Thisted fell with 3-1. Allowing only two goals while scoring fourteen is a great result for any team, but it remains under the question mark whether Randers are able to use the wings they acquired in Superliga.
SonderjyskE vs Randers: Head-to-head

SonderjyskE vs Randers: Prediction
