my posts for years, you know that I am a big fan
of Scandinavian football and specially of the
The Danish Super Ligaen, takes a long winter break and resume usually this time of the year.
The last game played was on the 12th of
December 2016 when Viborg drew against
Odense with score 1-1 and here is the story so far......
pretty sure they will be crowned champions again. Brondby remains second and
unchallenged, ten points away from the ambitious Midtjyllands and Randers.
In the other hand, the 'surprise' of the season so far is definitely Lyngby. After 21 fixtures they find themselves on the 5th place on the leader-board, and just a point short from the 3rd place!
Also the other 'newbies' in the league Horsens and Silkeborg, are doing ''unexpectedly''
well for many punters, fans and sports tipsters in this footy world. As a result, Odense and Viborg sank to the bottom of the leader board and face direct relegation.
Having said that, during the winter break, the transfers window was open and all teams
have updated their squads. We suggest ''caution'' to the punters for the first 2-
3 fixtures! When the league resumes, teams could appear ''transformed'' with new
players in their squads.
Esbjerg v Sonderjyske It took a great effort for the hosts to get away from the bottom of the
leader-board but only just! 5 players transferred out since January including B Paulsen to Hammarby for 245K euros. Although the amount would boost the club's cash I think the squad has been weaken significantly. I fear it will be too much for the new comers and
inexperienced Kakabadze, Zivzivadze, Katsikas and Tsimikas to replace equally good the
In the visitor's camp there is sense of optimism and enthusiasm for the future. They have
strengthen their squad with 8 players and 5 out of them have good experience and stats. In
the other hand, only 2 players transferred out who did not have any time of playing with this
club this year.
I will make a ''rough'' estimation and say that home's win looks difficult and more likely
could be a draw or away win. I believe both teams will chase the 3 points of win from the start of the match and Over 2.5 goals @2.26 on Betfair Exchange sounds good to me.
FC Nordsjaelland v Lyngby Nords are having an 'average' performance this season and
makes sense to say that fairly the occupy a mid table place on the leader board. In terms of
transfers, not much going one except that 3 players transferred in but one I consider it
significant. The Goalkeeper Carlgren who could be a good addition in contrast with the
inexperienced strikers Faour and Dhaflaoui who puzzle me. 2 players went out Naah and
Oduro who I think are more valuable than the 2 above transferred in.
Lyngby in the other hand surprise me with the massive exit of 6 players included the
experienced Rasmussen! D Boysen though it is a significant transfer in but overall I think
the squad has been weaken. I know that Lygby's current (last year's) form in away games is exceptional but I fear the changes in squad/substitutes could have a negative impact.
I give the edge to the hosts but I put my trust in Over 2.5 goals.
