THE late goals keep coming but I’m hoping for an earlier win today.
A nice big card with a few European leagues coming to an end but main focus is once again on those Danes. The deeper leagues can be goldmines if you find teams in poor form so I’m hoping there are another couple of value team goals here.
Sydvest host Naestved in the Danish second division promotion group and I’m hoping to see some away goals. Naestved look strange here as although 2-7 on the WDW they are only 4-9 to score twice against a side that has conceded 2+ in 8 of their last 10.
Naestved have been in fine form winning four of their last five and six of nine of the road. Shouldn’t have too many problems in getting a couple goals today.
Double them up with Hillerod at Lyseng from the second division relegation group. Lyseng are almost certainly taking the plunge this season, sitting rock bottom, 11 points behind the next team, and they’ll have to put everything in this one with only five games remaining and 14 points from safety.
Lyseng have lost 8 of their last 10, conceding 2+ in all eight losses. They’ve lost four of their last five at home and have conceded 2+ in four defeats.
Hillerod have fared much better in the relegation group winning 7 of 9 contests. They’ve shown signs of strength over their last two away games in come-from-behind wins, most recently being 4-1 at the break in Greve, to win 5-4.
Seventeen goals over their last five isn’t to be sniffed at and with Lyseng’s defensive struggles away goals look all but certain.
