SonderjyskE vs Vendsyssel
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Friday, 17 August 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Sydbank Park, Haderslev.
Vendsyssel began their maiden season in the top flight of the Danish football in some style, clinching back-to-back wins over OB and Esbjerg in the opening two rounds.
They then went on to lose fixtures with Nordsjaelland and AaB without scoring a goal along the way, but such streak came to an end seven days ago when they drew 1-1 to fellow newcomers Vejle at Nord Energi Arena.
Such start is enough to keep the recently promoted side inside the top six in the league ladder ahead of the trip to Haderslev and the SonderjyskE clash on Friday afternoon at Sydbank Park.
Claus Norgaard does not quite have reasons to be satisfied with the start his men have made in this tern of Superligaen.
The hosts took only four points from five games and they will head into this desperate to end the two-loss streak and to finally score a goal after failing to do so in consecutive losses to AGF and Esbjerg.
SonderjyskE vs Vendsyssel: Head-to-head
- The two teams only met each other twice over the course of history.
- The occasion was DBU Pokalen and SonderjyskE came on top both times.
- The previous meeting took place last year when SonderjyskE picked up a 1-2 victory on the road.
SonderjyskE vs Vendsyssel: Prediction
The hosts have much more quality in their ranks and they should really be able to get their campaign back on track and pick up the spoils against the league newcomers.
Vendsyssel’s form has hit a stumbling block after the opening two wins as the visitors notched only a single goal in three following games.
Norgaard’s men will be highly motivated to wrap-up the three-pointer here which is why we will combine the home win with SonderjyskE’s clan sheet as main betting options.
The hosts defeated Horsens 2-0 in the previous home clash and we expect a similar scenario this time around.
