Aarhus vs Midtjylland
Date: Sunday, 28 July 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park (Aarhus).
Aarhus have been deprived of a win so far, with their last two games on the road returning a draw and a loss respectively. Their most recently concluded clash was a defeat against the reigning champions Copenhagen by a 2-1 scoreline.
The hosts managed ten attempts at goal in that game but failed to convert all but one into the back of the net. The squad made the goalkeeper work on just two occasions throughout the ninety minutes while their foes were on target five times.
Midtjylland, who came in second last season, are off to a flying start and are unbeaten in their last two ties. The visitors won with a clean sheet in hand in their opening clash against Esbjerg, while their last matchup saw them clinch a 2-1 win against Nordsjaelland.
The away side were certainly the better of the two teams in the latter game and came close to finding the back of the net on eight instances, while their opponents managed just one shot on target.
The home team’s performances on the road have been far from convincing and will be hoping for a much more positive run on home soil when they welcome Midtjylland to the Ceres Park on Sunday.

Aarhus vs Midtjylland Prediction
The hosts have conceded more than what they have scored so far, and have been struggling to clinch the win in their last two games.
The fact that Aarhus will be having home advantage at their side for the first time this season, matters very little, as they have not fared well against the visitors in their recent clashes at this venue.
Midtjylland have been recording back to back wins in their last two trips here and have scored five in the process whilst conceding just once. Add that to the run of form that they are going through right now, and we have them as the favorites come out on top this weekend.
Both the winning goals for the guests have come in the second half of the game, so expect Midtjylland to find the back of the net, post the restart, without fail.
