The visiting København side should be favourites in this visit to Esbjerg, as the away team holds a 33 point advantage from their 20 league games this season.

Esbjerg form and stats

Esbjerg's struggle is real here at Blue Water Arena with only 9 points collected from 10 Superliga games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-3-5. Esbjerg has three losses from their three previous games and the tension is increasing in the dressing room for both the manager L. Olsen and the players.

In their previous game, the manager L. Olsen led his Esbjerg to a defeat in the Superliga match away at Randers. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Blue Water Arena. Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Randers (0-3).

Esbjerg has scored 11 league goals at home this season, in 10 matches. Esbjerg have conceded 15 from these games.

København form and stats

6-0-4 is the win-draw-loss statistic for København in their Superliga matches away. The fact that København have won four matches in a row should scare the hosts and makes this contest more interesting.

København have scored 14 goals on their travels this season, from 10 away games in the league. 14 goals have been conceded by København in these games.

Head 2 Head
