Lyngby take on the visitors Sonderjyske at "Lyngby Stadion" in the matchday five of the Danish Superliga. The game will be played on Saturday, August 12th.
Last season Lyngby won the bronze medals of the elite division, having recorded five-clash winning streak at the end of the season. "The Vikings" also started this season with five consecutive triumphs with 9:2 aggregated score, having passed through two qualification rounds in the UEFA Europa League and got 2:1 victory over Silkeborg in the opening fight of the Superliga. Nevertheless, the winning run was broken after 10 matches and turned into five-game losing streak with 7-18 goal difference. "The Vikings"' defense has collapsed and, as a result, the side was knocked out by Krasnodar 1:2, 1:3 from the UEFA Europa League and failed in the elite division. Lyngby sit on the 12th place among 14 teams of the Superliga with three points earned and 7-14 goal difference after four rounds.

Sonderjyske finished the previous season on the sixth position in the elite division, having not qualified to the Eurocups and intentionally prepared to a new season. And it helped the side to succeed at the start of the season: Sonderjyske picked up seven points with eight goals for and three goals against in four opening matchdays allowing them to settle on the fourth place in the Superliga. Still, the team is not very convincing on the road as having beaten Aalborg with 4:1 scoreline, the club broke its six-game run without victories at away grounds.
Lyngby won last four recent head-to-heads against Sonderjyske with 7:1 aggregated score. Thus, taking into account that fact as well as presumption that «The Vikings» have to get out from the crisis at last, especially bearing in mind that the team showed solid football even a month ago, I believe that the hosts will gain some points in the forthcoming battle.
Prediction for the match: Lyngby to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
