Esbjerg fB vs SonderjyskE
Competition: Danish Superligaen
Date: 17th February 2017
Kick-off: 20:15 CET
Esbjerg fB welcome SonderjyskE to the Blue Water Arena in Friday’s Danish Superligaen clash, in a game that could be a close affair given the two sides have racked up the draws in their latest outings. Esbjerg have been short of goals on home soil while SonderjyskE haven’t scored many on the road, so their latest meeting might result in a stalemate.
Home side Esbjerg fB are currently 12th in the Danish Superligaen with 19 points this season, but went into the break with two wins and two draws from their last four outings. Esbjerg have only lost twice at home in 2016/17, but they haven’t won many either, instead drawing six of their 10 games at the Blue Water Arena. And with SonderjyskE racking up more draws than either wins or losses, it’s hard to see anything other than a tame affair.
As for the visitors, SonderjyskE find themselves sixth in the division with 30 points, having drawn their last four games. The away side have been unbeaten in five outings, but away from home they have picked up just two points from their last four and may well settle for less this week as a result. But their superior head-to-head record may give them added confidence ahead of the trip to the Blue Water Arena.
Esbjerg fB vs SonderjyskE: Head to head stats
Away side SonderjyskE have enjoyed a one-sided record over Esbjerg fB in the Danish Superligaen, boasting four wins from their last five meetings. They did draw their previous outing, however, which may be an omen to the eventual outcome to Friday’s clash.
Esbjerg fB vs SonderjyskE: Prediction
Esbjerg fB haven’t been losing of late, but have drawn a third of their games which suggests a home clash against a side higher up in the table is one where they’d settle for a stalemate. SonderjyskE will respect their opponents and may take a point away from home given how poor they’ve been on their travels this season. With Esbjerg scoring just 15 goals in 10 games at home, while SonderjyskE have netted only 14 in 10 away outings, this week’s clash might not see much in the way of action.
