Copenhagen vs Midtjylland: Preview and Predictions

Copenhagen vs Midtjylland
Danish Superliga
Date: Friday, 18 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Telia Parken (Copenhagen).

Derby match of the 35th round in Danish Superliga is going to be contested between Copenhagen and Midtjylland.

Home side made a step back in their battle for the Europa League spot after suffering a defeat away to Aalborg in the latest round. Although they haven’t been so close to the 3rd spot after the regular season, a series of good results launched them to the top three. However, Nordsjaelland have the same number of points and the battle between these two sides for the Europa League is expected in the remaining rounds.

On the other hand, Midtjylland got back in the title race after celebrating an important victory over top placed Brondby. They made the title race super exciting as the two sides have the same number of points, two rounds before the end of the season. Bubacarr Saneh scored the winner and that one goal was enough for the visitors to get back home with three points. However, if they want to materialize that victory, they need to celebrate in this one too.

Copenhagen vs Midtjylland: Head-to-head

When these two sides are facing each other, the hosting team is usually the one who takes all three points. The hosts celebrated seven times in the last eight matches, which also were extremely efficient, with no less than four goals per match.

Copenhagen vs Midtjylland: Prediction

This one is very tricky to predict since the stake is high for both sides. However, according to the tradition and since the hosts had one day more for the recovery from a mid-week game, they should have a slight advantage.

Another open clash is expected and since both sides are very efficient this season, the crowd won’t miss goals in the action. It is natural to expect that both teams will be capable of scoring at least once.
