Horsens

Ground: CASA Arena

Visits: 1

Date: 19th September 2010

Match: Horsens - Esbjerg  0-3  (Superligaen)

Attendance: 3 839

 

Last match on this trip was to be in Horsens, situated some 45 km south of Aarhus where I stayed the night. AC Horsens was founded in 1994 as a merger of three local clubs. After playing four season in Superligaen the club was relegated to 1. Division in 2009 but the club only stayed in that division for a year, being promoted back to Superligaen as champions of the second tier of Danish football. They have had a decent start to this season and were mid-table before this match. I arrived at CASA Arena 90 minutes prior to kick-off and bought a ticket for the North Stand. CASA Arena nowdays has a capacity of 10 400 (7 500 seats) and is a nice ground to visit. The spectacular flood-lights are almost alone worth making the trip to Horsens. As the game started Esbjerg were by far the best team and after a nice own-goal by a Horsens player the visitors went 1-0 up. It was 2-0 by half-time and since Esbjerg were in a relegation spot before the game this was not was I had expected. In the second half Esbjerg scord again to win the game 3-0. If Horsens are to avoid being relegated back to 1. Divisionen they certainly have to improve their defending. I was not complaining though. 14 goals in three matches made this trip one to remember.
