FW Predictions for OB vs Nordsjaelland

Both of these teams will be hoping for a better performance this season after the pair finished in the bottom five last time out. OB got the better of Nordsjaelland last season and the bookmakers fancy the hosts to secure all 3pts on Monday night.

Over 2.5 Goals

We're predicting goals in this game and the recent history backs that up with three of the last five meetings between UB and Nordsjaelland producing over 2.5 goals. At least three goals have been scored in four of OB's last five matches in all competitions as well as in three of Nordsjaelland's last four outings, adding further weight to our prediction for Monday's clash.

Both Teams to Score

There is a good chance that we will be treated to goals at both ends of the pitch on Monday night as four of the last five encounters between these two clubs have ended the very same way. Both teams have scored in five of OB's and four of Nordsjaelland's last six competitive and non-competitive matches, so you can see just why we're backing both teams to find the back of the net on Monday.
