Esbjerg, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-2 1. division victory against HB Køge.
It has been seldom in recent times that Esbjerg have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Esbjerg have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 6 goals along the way. Despite that, time will tell if that pattern will be sustained in this upcoming game or not.
Going into this one, Esbjerg are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches at home.
Kolding IF will go into this game following a 3-2 1. division win as they beat Vendsyssel FF in their previous fixture.
Anders Jensen’s Kolding IF have managed to stick the ball in the net 8 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during that period equals 8.
Their prior results show that Kolding IF:
- haven’t been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
- have not won away from home in their last 6 matches in the league.

Team News: Kolding IF
Kolding boss Anders Jensen has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Frederik Ibsen (Unknown Injury), Benjamin Schubert (Unknown Injury), Denis Fazlagic (Groin Injury) and Oskar Stentoft (Unknown Injury) can’t be considered.
It certainly seems that Kolding IF will need to be at their best to find the back of the net against a Esbjerg side who have the capability to get the goals that they need to set up a big win here.
We reckon that it will be a commanding 3-0 margin for Esbjerg at full-time.
