Aarhus Prediction

Their 1-0 home win over Hobro last time out has given the hosts Aarhus a decent chance of lifting themselves up into the Championship Round as they now trail 6th placed Randers by just three points ahead of this important home fixture with Esbjerg.

Aarhus now sit in 10th place on the Danish Superliga ladder and although they occupy a bottom half position in the Superliga, their form at home has been fairly solid with a record of 4-4-2 13/12 which includes back-to-back wins over Vejle and Hobro, and they’ve lost just twice in their last 12 matches on home turf.

Midfielder Ankersen (5 goals) leads the way for the hosts who have scored in 9 of their 10 home matches so far in this season’s Superliga, and both teams have scored in 7 of their 10 home matches too.


Key-Facts – Aarhus v Esbjerg

  • Aarhus have scored in 9 of their 10 home matches so far this season
  • Both teams have scored in 7 of Aarhus’s 10 home matches
  • 5 of Esbjerg’s 10 away matches have seen both teams score


Esbjerg Prediction

Esbjerg occupy 4th place in the Danish Superliga but hold a slender two point lead ahead of 7th placed OB Odense so the visitors will be keen to add to their points tally at Aarhus on Friday night to bolster their chances of a place in the Championship Round.

This may be easier said than done though for the visitors as they’ve gained just one win from their last six matches which was a 3-0 home win over Nordsjaelland just before the winter break. Recent defeats to OB, Aalborg and Copenhagen have threatened Esbjerg’s top six finish, so they’ll be keen to improve their away record that stands at 4-2-4 10/12.

5 of Esbjerg’s 10 away matches have seen both teams score and as the visitors are by no means guaranteed of all three points here, the goals market seems the best option in a match where both teams are returning from the winter break.

Betting Tips Verdict

Aarhus have found results hard to come by overall, but at home they’ve been fairly solid while Esbjerg will be keen to return to winning ways here, so we should see both teams score.
