Leading up to this clash, Odense BK:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Esbjerg in their previous 2 matches.

The stats don’t lie, and Esbjerg have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals in total. Defensively, Esbjerg can certainly do much better. Let’s find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.

Team News: Esbjerg
We are inclined to think that Esbjerg seem most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup, giving starts to Vito Mannone, Daniel Anyembe, Rodolph Austin, Søren Reese, Kevin Conboy, Jakob Sörensen, Lasha Parunashvili, Rafal Kurzawa, Mads Larsen, Dauda Mohammed and Yuriy Yakovenko.
We’ve got the feeling that Esbjerg might well have a job on their hands to break down this Odense BK team who we reckon should emerge victorious. We’ve gone for a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Odense BK at the end of this game. It should be a good one.
