The Odense vs. Nordsjaelland match will be played on Monday, July 17, at the EWII Park, Odense. This is the first round match of the Danish Superliga 2017/18 season. In the previous season, Nordsjaelland finished 6th and played in the playoffs afterward, while Odense finished 11th and had to play in the play out, but they didn't have any difficulties to avoid relegation.


  • Odense played three friendly games during the summer. Holstein Kiel and Shakhtar Donetsk defeated them by 2:0 and 3:2 respectively, while their match against Koge ended in a 0:0 draw.
  • Nordsjaelland was more active during the summer and played five friendly matches. They recorded four draws and one defeat. It is interesting that all draws ended with under 2.5 goals scored.


In their previous ten meetings, Odense recorded seven victories, while Nordsjaelland had three wins. Odense is currently in a series of seven consecutive victories against Nordsjaelland. It is interesting that we haven't seen a draw in their matches for five years.


In the first decade of the 21st century, Odense was one of the best Danish clubs. They failed to finish in the top four only twice, they won two Danish Cup titles, and they participated in Europa League three times. However, the things have changed, and Odense is now struggling to make an impact in the league. In the last couple of years, they were even fighting against relegation! Will this season be different for them? The first game of the season might give us a clue what to expect from them this year.

Nordsjaelland is typically in the middle of the table, but they had some excellent results in the past ten years. They won two Cup titles, and they even participated in Champions League in 2012/13 season. They want to fight for the top in this season; we will see how that goes.

It 's hard to predict the outcome of this game. Odense will try to extend their winning series against Nordsjaelland, while the visitors would probably settle for a draw.
