Esbjerg will host Sonderjyske in 18th round of Danish Superliga. They are coming to this match after defeat against Odense on the road while before that got a draw against Hobro at home and suffered convincing defeats also on the road against Midtjylland 5:1. Esbjerg is currently at 11th position at the table, only five points above last placed Hobro. They ended previous season at decent 8th position but in this season they achieved only three victories, suffered 8 defeats and got six draws. So far they showed decent goal scoring skills and scored 24 goals but they must improve their defense since they conceded 36 goals, only last placed Hobro conceded more goals than them. Esbjerg must try to get back on the track otherwise it will be very hard to avoid dropping into relegation zone, they are now facing against strong Sonderjyske and it will be very hard to achieve positive outcome and save their net.
Sonderjyske on the other hand are at 4th position with only 4 points and one match more played than first placed FC Copenhagen. They showed decent attacking skills and scored 27 goals while conceded 20, they are among most effective teams in league. Previous season they ended only one position above relegation zone and they now can be satisfied with their results, they managed to improve their form and in last two rounds manage to celebrate over Hobro, at home and Nordsjaelland on the road. Sonderjyske also managed to reach quarter finals of the Cup by eliminating lower ranked Greve IF, with convincing victory on the road 2:6. Sonderjyske is playing good offensive football in this season and for sure won't change their tactics for this match, they must go for a victory to maintain difference between them and first three teams, if they continue with performances like so far for sure are able to include themselves into a title race and battle for place into qualifications for European competitions. They have positive record in duels against Esbjerg, in last two rounds they managed to celebrate while before that suffered one defeat and got two draws.
Esbjerg is in very bad shape, they must try to get back on the track as soon as possible but it will be very hard now to save their net against very strong Sonderjyske, while Sonderjyske is coming here after two victories in a row and for sure will try to continue with good results and earn another three points, I expect open match and over 2.5 seems like a logical choice.
