League: Denmark Superligaen
Sonderjyske – Lyngby
Pick: Sonderjyske to Win and Under 2.5 Match Goals
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Nine of SonderjyskE’s 14 home Superliga games have featured under 2.5 goals.
- Six of SonderjyskE’s last eight home Superliga games have featured under 2.5 goals.
- Lyngby have failed to score in last two away trips.
Lyngby lack motivation to stop hosts’ Euro challenge
SonderjyskE are still fighting for a European place but Lyngby’s fate was sealed by their defeat to Horsens last time out.
The visitors know they will be playing in the first division next season and that changes will be made to their playing squad.
The club have confirmed goalkeeper Thomas Mikkelsen is to leave while Kasper Enghardt, Lasse Fosgaard and Justin Shaibu will likely go when their contracts expire.
As Jens Martin Gammelby and Victor Torp are due to head back to their parent clubs this summer, there seems little point in giving them any more playing time.
So expect a few different names in the Lyngby line-up with Brian Hamalainen, Frederik Gytkjær and Adam Sørensen all still out with injuries.
The hosts will be eager to get the cup defeat to Randers out of their system where they shipped four goals, but they have been pretty solid at home.
Three clean sheets in their last four at Sydbank Park suggest they can repress the relegated visitors here and win to nil.
Three of SonderjyskE’s last four home Superliga wins against Lyngby have been by the minimum scoreline so it could pay to back a 1-0 home win again.
