Sonderjyske vs Nordsjaelland
Competition: Danish Superligaen
Date: 9th December 2016
Kick-off: 20:15 CET
Sonderjyske welcome Nordsjaelland to the Haderslev Fodboldstadion in Friday’s Danish Superligaen clash, and are big favourites to come out on top to potentially go level on points with third place. The hosts have been formidable in their own backyard, and face a travel-sick Nordsjaelland outfit who risk being leapfrogged by three other clubs in the league if they fall short this week.
Home side Sonderjyske are currently sixth in the Danish Superligaen with 29 points from 20 games this season, having suffered just two defeats from their last 15. Their form at the Haderslev Fodboldstadion has been formidable, boasting four wins from their last five, and Sonderjyske will fancy their chances of getting all three points with how much their opponents are struggling on their travels.
Visitors Nordsjaelland are two places and five points worse off than Sonderjyske in the Superligaen, and have failed to win two of their last three ahead of Friday’s trip to the Haderslev Fodboldstadion. Nordsjaelland’s weakness has been their away form, having gone six games without a win on the road, picking up just one away victory since July. Their recent head-to-head record doesn’t make for good reading either.
Sonderjyske vs Nordsjaelland: Head to head stats
Sonderjyske have dominated in recent meetings with Nordsjaelland, winning their last four Superligaen head-to-heads, while suffering just one home defeat to Nordsjaelland since 2012. Seven wins from their last 10 league meetings see Sonderjyske taking bragging rights ahead of their latest clash, and their superior league form is likely to see them registering an eighth win in eleven with Nords.
Sonderjyske vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
With Sonderjyske so strong on home soil and having won their last four head-to-head with Nordsjaelland, the hosts are expected to pick up all three points when the two sides meet at the Haderslev Fodboldstadion this week. Sonderjyske could go level on points with the top-three of the Danish Superligaen with a win, and will be full of confidence as Nordsjaelland’s last away win came in August.
