Midtjylland vs Brondby
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Thursday, 19 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: MCH Arena (Herning).
Brondby showed a huge mental strength to come back from a goal down and beat the defending champions Copenhagen in the weekend’s Superligaen classic at Brondby Stadion. It was Hany Mukhtar who bagged the match-winner for Drengene Fra Vestegnen in the 90th minute of the game to keep them in the con test for the title.
They are still levelled on points with Midtjylland at the very top of the standings ahead of the match which could determine the new Danish champion on Thursday evening at MCH Arena. The hosts come into this in an equally impressive form, having won five on the bounce.
Furthermore, Jess Thorup’s men bagged two or more goals in each of last three games across competitions and they managed to reach the semifinal of the DBU Pokalen beating Hobro 1-2 on the road along the way.

Midtjylland vs Brondby: Prediction
Both managers have strong attacking weapons and we would be truly surprised to see a low-scoring contest when these two likes are to lock horns at MCH Arena. Alexander Zorniger’s men notched seven goals in last two games past Horsens and Copenhagen, conceding one in each of the mentioned wins. On the other side, six of last seven games Midtjylland played in all competitions saw both teams on the scoreline. We thus just have to back the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS at the odds of 1.95 here.
Brondby0’s talisman Teemu Pukki is worth backing as the anytime goalscorer in what is expected to be a high-scoring contest. You can have the Finnish striker to find the net at 2.30 odds. He took his league tally to 15 netting a hat-trick in the mentioned drubbing of Horsens (5-1).
