OB form and stats

3 victories, 4 draws and 2 defeats. That’s what OB have to build on here at Nature Energy Park in the Superliga.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 195 minutes without scoring a league goal. M. Hyllegaard was the last player to find the net. Nothing to worry about in defence for OB, as their goalkeeper Oliver Christensen has completely shut out the opponents for 277 minutes in the Superliga.

OB drew their last game, 0-0 away at Horsens (placed 11th). The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 0-0 versus AGF.

This is expected to be a close game, with OB perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with OB as a small favourite), we find seven games. OB has won three of these, drawn one and lost three.

OB are traveling soon after this match as the Superliga match at SønderjyskE awaits in four days.

OB are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 9 goals in 9 games. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. From these home matches, OB have conceded only 8 goals.

Randers form and stats

The away team, who have the fewest conceded goals (15) in Superliga, have been very comfortable on their travels so far, racking up 5 wins, 1 draw and only 2 losses in the Superliga.

Randers's last game ended in a draw, the home match versus Nordsjælland that finished 1-1. Ahead of that match was the away draw versus AaB that ended 0-0.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found six similar matches played by Randers in our archives, and the results are: four wins for Randers, one draw and one defeat.

The schedule is very tough for Randers now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A Superliga game at Brøndby is waiting in only four days.

Randers has displayed an ability to score goals in away matches in the league this season, 12 goals from 8 games. Randers are tighter than a frog's bottom, as only 3 away goals have been conceded so far. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 0 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
