Odense vs Aarhus by DamirJ
Odense is coming from a 2:2 draw away to Horsens, but also from a 7:3 Cup game in the midweek as they won over Hvidorve also away from home. They are currently fifth at the table and although they are not far away from their target (to reach the European Cups positions), they can't be completely satisfied with the start of the season.
Their 2:2 draw was somehow disappointing for them as they played with a man more whole second half-time but found themselves trailing 2:1 at the beginning of the second half-time and although they pressed their opponents for whole second part, they were able only to score once although they had already four incredibly huge goalscoring chances. Overall, hosts are in a poor form without a single win in league in previous four matches, having two draws and two losses. However, there is a impression that they have deserved much more and that they are about to change their record as most of the matches were a matter of them being really unlucky.
Key defender Anders Christensen who played all previous ten matches is out, same as for midfielder Sorensen who barely had impact this season having played only one match so far.
Aarhus, on the other side, is currently at the fourth position with fifteen points earned out of ten matches and the start of the season is going more than well for them.
They are coming from a home 2:2 draw against SonderjyskE in a game they should have clearly take all three points. They entered the game very well, having ball possession to their side and have controlled the game overall. Finally, 2:0 lead by the end of the first hour of play clearly was pointing out to their win, but then they simply stopped playing and conceded two goals, with the last one being scored just minute before the full time whistle. Key defensive midfielder Pasanen is out for this game just as main defender Kure.
Goals are expected here. Odense is favorite to win the game as they have really been very unlucky in previous matches. However, both teams are having many ups and downs during one game and are not completely to trust, especially their defenses. With both teams having important absentees in the defensive lineup, over goals looks like the most logical bet.
