Danmark, Betsafe Ligaen
Viborg – AB Copenhagen
Viborg changed out half their squad basically, but I don’t see this as a certain bad thing.
Out went GK Veselovsky, ST Hvilsom(Loan terminated), Valentino Lai(CM), and Dennis Høegh(ST). However, they got quality players back. Martin Hansen, goalkeeper from Liverpool, joined them. He’s 21 and a big talent, and should get a chance to develop in the 1st division. Dalgaard, an excellent 1st division poacher also joined from Skive, Simon Nagel, midfielder, Sarr, a very pacy back, Sennels, former Viborg player, and other than that a few talents joined Viborg. They have a very exciting squad, and finally seem to adjust to the 1st division life by getting players who have performed down at this level rather than adapting former superliga players to play there.
AB lost big GK talent Haugaard to Midtjylland, but managed to resign Jens Waltorp who is a very stable GK, but have been out with injuries in the fall. They have a very thin squad and are vulnerable towards injuries. They brought in Gykjær from Nordsjælland, a ST talent.
Viborg is a superliga team in disguise, and i have them as an outsider to promote. Their setup is such as the superliga – big, new stadium and some money behind them, although they’ve been in financial trouble because of the lack of TV payments in the 1st division in contrary to the superliga. They should take this, they play defensively and i really like the addition of Dalgaard up front. He’s a poacher and will score no matter where he plays.
Blokhus – Roskilde
Roskilde will make a busride across the entire country(about 4-5 hour ride) to meet Blokhus in Northern Jutland here.
Blokhus is a technical, young team. They’re fighting for survival, against Roskilde, which makes this an interesting match. Blokhus usually have a lot of rotation in their squad, as players receive short performance contracts. They did however make a good loan deal in Mikkel Petersen from Thisted, alongside with Mark Tubæk who never broke through in the U.S. They have impressed in their friendly matches, beating 2nd division deep-squad team Lindholm, and then also beating Thisted and Viborg – all solid teams.
Roskilde with a very limited squad. They have Jeppe Kjær up front who continues to impress, but he can’t make it all happen himself. Furthermore, Andreas Bak had to stop his career due to injuries, a big blow for their defense. Coach Carsten Broe of Roskilde have stated himself that they have played in too slow tempo in the friendlies, which imo. should make this match difficult for them, as Blokhus play really fast paced and offensively, with a lot of passes constantly. Fine value on the hosts here.
Bronshoj – Vejle
Bronshoj out: Pierre Kanstrup (mf 13/1), Peter Ørbæk Larsen (df 13/0), Stefan Schmidt (mf 11/1)
Vejle out: Godwin Antwi (df 3/0) and Azer Busuladzic (mf 13/1)
Bronshoj leave 8 players, they bring 9 new players (mostly free) so it is questionable are they stronger than before and of course there need time for acclimate.
Germany Bundesliga 2
Gr Furth – Cottbus
I remember last seasons Greuther always playing good, had chance for promote but always in last rounds play unbeliveble bad and loose playoff spot. In normal circumstances this will be sure home win
Furth out: Kingsley Onuegbu (att 1/0), Stephan Schrock (mf 24/3), Robert Zillner (mf 7/1), Bernd Nehrig(mf 26/6)
Energie out: Markus Brzenska (df 2/0), Christopher Schorch (df 10/0), Alexander Ludwig(mf12/1), Leo Bittencourt (mf 23/2), Uwe Hunemeier (df 20/1)
Doubtful is Marius Bilasco (att 4/0). Engel (df 9/0) and Ziebig (df 24/0) back
Hansa Rostock vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Hansa out: Stephan Gusche (df 9/0), Mohammed Lartey (mf 14/0), Pavel Kostal (df 10/1), Bjorn Ziegenbein (mf 15/1), Sebastian Pelzer (df 21/0), Kevin Muller (gk 26/0), Matthias Holst(df 20/2)
Muller (df 22/1) and Borg (att 9/5) are fit.
Fortuna out: Andreas Lambertz (mf 26/4), Sascha Rosler (att 25/12), Robbie Kruse (att 11/0), Thomas Broeker (att 26/7), Johannes van den Bergh (df 27/0)
