Vendsyssel FF vs Odense Boldklub
Date: Sunday, 15 July 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: Hjorring Stadion, Hjorring.
A real buzz is expected in and around Hjorring Stadion on Sunday afternoon when Vendsyssel are set to make their debut in the top flight of the Danish football.
The team founded back in 1886 managed to earn the promotion to the elite for the first time in their history and there are no doubts the hosts will be highly motivated to pick up the result against OB on Sunday.
The opposition is clearly beatable, in spite of OB’s impressive streak in pre-season friendlies. The visitors are nowhere near crème de la crème of Danish football as they only played the Relegation Round in the previous term of Superligaen.
Vendsyssel vs OB: Head-to-head
- This will only be the second head to head clash between the two teams.
- The first one took place two years ago in the third round of DBU Pokalen.
- Vendsyssel made an upset clinching a 2-1 victory in front of the home crowd back then.
Vendsyssel vs OB: Prediction
Both teams head into the game in high spirits following their fine set of displays in pre-season tests. The hosts won two on the bounce against the likes of Horsens and Hobro, netting a fine six-goal tally along the way.
OB had a much easier opposition in last two games, but we have to praise their fine showings against Swedish sides Kalmar and Ostersunds (back-to-back clean sheet wins for them there).
Overall, OB only conceded in one of five friendlies, but their defensive line will be under a much heavier pressure against the highly-motivated opposition here.
The bookies fancy Odense, but the true value lies with the hosts who are well worth backing to win at 3.30. More conservative punters will be satisfied with the 1.72 odds offered for Vendsyssel not to lose the match.
Since Danish football generally produces high-scoring affairs, we have to notice the value in the BTTS option at 1.90 as well as in the Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.05.
