The 28th round of the Danish Superliga will be played this weekend. SønderjyskE won again in the last round and look to be a serious contender for silver. On Friday and Saturday we have two local derbies from Jutland. On Friday SønderjyskE play at home in Haderslev against Esbjerg and on Saturday Hobro will make the 30 minutes trip to Randers.
SØNDERJYSKE v ESBJERG – FRIDAY 6th at 17:00
With another win in round 27, SønderjyskE are really looking to cause another huge upset this season. With a strong collective and more players showing great leadership, the team from Southern Jutland are a hard nut to crack. SønderjyskE are currently in 2nd place and have a huge 22 point margin over Esbjerg in 10th place.
Esbjerg will be missing three regular starters with suspension for this match; Daniel Stenderup (CB), Bjørn Paulsen (CM) and Mohammed Fellah (AM). This will no doubt be a big loss for the guests as they are struggling to get points at the moment.
The problem for Esbjerg has been their efficiency in front of goal. With 12.7 shots on average, but only 8% scoring efficiency, Esbjerg need to improve on this a lot got get more goals. In comparison SønderjyskE only have 11.6 shots on average but a scoring efficiency of 14%. Today I expect to see Esbjerg have the ball a lot in their own half of the pitch but SønderjyskE to play strongly and efficiently on the counter attack.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: SønderjyskE -0.75 at 2.06
RANDERS v HOBRO SATURDAY 7TH at 15:00
Randers coach Colin Todd has got his team back on track after a period of poor results and focus on things away from the pitch. With Jonas Borring signing for Brøndby and former captain Christian Keller out of the squad, things have taken a turn for the better. With a five match unbeaten streak, Randers are favorites to take three points on Saturday.
Hobro are starting to create more chances and the fight on the pitch does not show a team already relegated. Coach Ove Pedersen has taken a bit of focus from defense and made a more attacking style. In the loss against SønderjyskE they created many chances, but still need a strong finisher. Creative player Quincy Antipas is still out with an injury and the scoring will be on the shoulders of George and Park.
With only 20 goals for and 59 against, this shows the defensive problems Hobro have. Randers will most likely play with Mikael Ishak and Viktor Lundberg which will no doubt cause a lot of problems for Hobro. The guests only have 9.5 shots on average and Randers have 12.9. I do not expect to see Hobro score which leads to the recommendation of Randers to win by at least two goals.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Randers -1.5 at 2.08
