Sonderjyske vs Viborg by Isaiah
Sonderjyske is in a really nice period right now, since the team has four victories in a row, after eight consecutive winless matches without a three pointer. Such a good form saw them rising up to the table, being currently at seventh position, which is just a point below the play-off position where first six places will be leading.
In the most recent game, the team won over Aalborg 1:0 narrowly away from home, confirming that their victories over Randers, Odense and Nordsjaelland previous weren't a coincidence. They looked very well against probably a bit stronger side, but the team was awarded for their fighting spirit and took the victory in first minute of additional time via Kronn from the penalty kick. In front of own fans, they have only 1-3-2 record so far, winning the previous match and everyone in the team is fired up to improve the home record and continue their good run. Home side coach Jakob Michelsen continues to miss striker Casper Olesen (2/0) due injury.
Viborg, on the other side, can be satisfied with the start they have in Superliga, since the team isn't known for their great quality, but is still above the relegation zone for now, having two points more than second from the bottom Odense and five points more than fourteenth and rock bottom placed Esbjerg. The team is now without a victory in last three rounds, but comes from morale boosting point taken at home against Copenhagen.
The game itself was pretty defensive one actually from both sides, with the home team leaving ball possession to much more quality visitors, who didn't actually looked that threatening and had problems converting chances into goal. Probably players of Copenhagen deserved something more, but the home team looked very decent in the defense and were awarded for their fighting spirit against more superior side. Left winger Osama Akharraz (no performance so far in the season) and forward Oliver Thyschosen (7/2) are continuing to be absentees due injuries.
Sonderjyske has upped their form at the moment and after international break, I can see them being only better. Home team has more quality than their opponents and should be able to take all three points here, no matter whether it's easy or hard. Odds are surely worth a risk.
