Brondby ended their winless momentum last time out at home against slightly favored Midtjylland when they appeared sharp enough and recorded a 2:0 victory.
After a goalless first part when the guests had the initiative, Brondby performed with more concentration in the second, scoring two over Slimane in the 54th and Uhre in the 66th, keeping their sheet clean till the end, even though the visitors had a potential to score at least one.

Osasuna can be satisfied with how they appeared in the last round on the road against Levante when they managed to pull out a victory with a minimal result.
Both sides didn’t take too many risks, so it wasn’t surprising that no goals were scored after the first forty-five minutes. However, the second part was more exciting, visibly more dynamic compared to the first. The guests took the lead in the 74th over Budimir and can thank Herrera for a three-pointer, as he successfully anticipated the direction of the ball, and stopped the hosts to level up the score from the penalty in the 79th minute.
Osasuna is at 13th place in the standings, having some concerns, as they are only four points above the relegation placed Elche.
Randers continued the season after more than a month-long break in the best possible manner, as they routinely outplayed Horsens at home with a convincing 3:0 result.

They looked far better in the offense throughout the encounter, and with another one scored in the 58th minute via Kamara, recorded a convincing victory against a pretty passive visiting side.
Randers is positioned at 3rd place in the rankings, being five points in deficit compared to the leaders from Brondby.
