8`th placed Odense welcomes 11`th placed Esbjerg in the 17`th round of the Danish Superliga. It promises to be an entertaining affair as Odense has been everything but a stabile team this year while Esbjerg is struggling hard. Odense goes from brilliant to pathetic in a matter of days and to count on something safe with them isn` t possible. They tightened the defense in their last games though. Esbjerg is miserable this season and stand just 6 points over the last placed Hobro. For a team that playes European matches regulary this is not acceptable. They changed the coach but theperformances are far from good. Esbjerg has lost 3 of the last 5 matches and that win came over FCN at home. They also took a 4:4 draw against at home against lowly Hobro but that is even good as they were trailing by 0:3. The defense is a mess and has conceded 14 goals in the last 4 matches.
For today the visitors will be without Stenderup (def.15-0), Jakobsen (def.15-0), Fellah (mid.13-0) Mensah (mid.9-4), Laursen (longterm) Palson (longterm).
The hosts are without Kryger(def.11-1), others are available.
This is far from a safe bet but in the condition Esbjerg is in the hosts should prevail.
|Odense -1.5 AH
||2-1 LOST (-6 units)|
