Nordsjaelland to Win
Nordsjaelland will be determined to hit the ground running in their first match of the new Superliga campaign in Denmark and The Tigers are our pick to beat recently-promoted Viborg on matchday one. Flemming Pedersen’s men finished the previous regular season in impressive style on home turf, taking 14 points from the last 18 on offer there and that with their supporters pushing them on, they should be able to make home advantage count again.
Both Teams to Score
Nordsjaelland only managed to keep two clean sheets in 16 regular season Superliga fixtures at home last term and with no notable defensive recruits signed over the summer, we’re backing them to concede again. BTTS landed in 62% of The Tigers league assignments at Right to Dream Park overall in 2020/21 and we expect that pattern to continue into the new season.
Over 2.5 Goals
1st division champions Viborg scored a healthy 71 times in 32 second-tier fixtures last season and the incisive attackers should have the confidence to go toe-to-toe with their hosts on Sunday. That should in turn lead to an exciting tussle between the teams and excitement levels are expected be high as a result. Norddsjaelland’s last eight regular-season home games produced 3.5 goals per 90 minutes and that suggests backing over 2.5 goals could be a safe bet this weekend.
Nordsjaelland vs Viborg: Match Preview
A subpar performance in last season’s Superliga Championship Round means that Nordsjaelland don’t have any continental football to look forward to this term and after some modest manoeuvres in the market over the summer, it’s difficult to see how Flemming Pedersen’s team can improve. In a further blow to their prospects for the year, star player Kamaldeen Sulemana is on the verge of sealing a move to Rennes in France. The exciting winger had been linked with both Ajax and Manchester United last month.
Viborg enter a new era in 2021/22 with new owner at the helm and a fresh face – Lars Friis – in the dugout. Former Brentford coach Friis has a job on his hands to replace popular 1st Division title-winning boss Jacob Neestrup, who has jumped ship to take up a role as an assistant at Copenhagen, though a positive result on the opening weekend would certainly help.
