THE TEAM NEWS

OB

  • OB extended their winless run to ten matches with a 1-0 defeat against AGF in their first game back since the resumption of the league campaign.
  • With the match level moving towards the last ten minutes they had looked set for a fourth consecutive draw but AGF found the breakthrough on 78 minutes and kept OB at bay for the rest of the contest.
  • OB spent much of the early part of the season in the top six so the fact they are going to competing in the Relegation Round at the end of the regular season is very deflating.

ESBJERG

  • Esbjerg are second from bottom in the league standings and have much work to do if they are to keep their status in the top flight for the 2020-21 season.
  • The restarted the campaign after the enforced break with a 1-1 draw against AaB but were left wondering at what might have been having led 1-0 going into the final ten minutes of the match.
  • If they are to win their battle against relegation they will have to improve their goal output on the road having scored just seven times - no team has scored fewer goals away from home this season in the Danish Superliga.

THE PREDICTION

Neither of these two teams have been in good goalscoring form so the signs point towards a low-scoring contest between two teams who are struggling for form. Esbjerg have shown plenty of fight in recent matches and might be the team who come closest to taking maximum points but ultimately a draw is the likeliest outcome.
