Vejle vs Esbjerg
Date: Friday, 21st September 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Vejle Stadion.
The newly promoted Danish Superliga outfit Vejle seek inspiration when they sit at home to Esbjerg this Friday.
Vejle found it hard to adjust to the life in top flight and sit in the bottom half of the table with a humble 8 points from their 9 matches so far. The lone win during the period came early as matchday 1, which means the team is sitting on an 8 match win-less streak, managing 5 draws in the process.
Adolfo Sormani will be pretty concerned about his team’s display in front of home games with the latest two ending in defeats conceding 5 goals.
Esbjerg are doing well of late and they find themselves at 5th on the log in the early part of 2018/19 season and with 5 point deficit from the league leaders. They did stutter at the beginning of the campaign and managed only 2 points from the first four.
However, things took a U-turn since as the lads managed by John Lammers picked up 4 wins from the next 5. One of those was a tricky away win at last season’s runner-up Brondby. Also, EfB’s all 4 wins in the period came with clean-sheets.
Vejle vs Esbjerg Head-to-head
- There are no stalemates in the last 6 h2h meetings between these two sides in all competitions. Esbjerg won 4 of those and lost 2.
- Six of their last 8 h2h matches saw over both teams scoring.
- Esbjerg are unbeaten in the last three visits to Vejle’s home, 2 wins and 1 draws.
Vejle vs Esbjerg Prediction
Esbjerg are enjoying their football at the moment and will be in good spirits in the away trip to struggling Vejle this weekend.
The hosts lost their last two h2h matches to their Friday’s visitors and they definitely look like a side in trouble after losing their last two matches at this stadium.
EfB’s strong defense is another reason that prompt be to go for an away win, despite bookies marking Vejle as marginal favorites in this Danish Superliga fixture.
