Midtjylland vs FC Copenhagen
Denmark – Superliga
Date: 9th April 2018, Monday
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: MCH Arena (Herning).
Midtjylland emerged as a powerhouse in Danish league this season and they are battling it out with Brondby for the second title in four years. The two mentioned teams are locked on 63 points apiece at the time of writing this article and Brondby may pull three points clear since they have an easy home fixture against Horsens on Sunday.
For Midtjylland, it is important to secure three points on Monday to keep the pressure, but Copenhagen are a wounded tiger sitting at fourth and out of the title race, but still looking to restore some pride with a strong finish to the campaign.
Yet, we believe it is difficult to take points away from Midtjylland at the MCH Arena. They lost just once all season, which came recently against the brilliant Brondby and the remaining 12 matches saw 11 wins and 1 draw. Moreover, they are a free scoring team who netted two or more in 11 of their 13 home games this season.
Sitting 16 points behind the two league leaders, Copenhagen are on a brilliant run since February. They won six on the bounce including a key 2-1 victory against third placed Nordsjaelland for Europa League qualification spot.
Yet, they do have a habit of dropping their heads at times in away matches. They managed only 17 points from their 13 away games so far this season and had difficulties in breaking down strong defensive sides.
Midtjylland vs Copenhagen: Head-to-head
FC Copenhagen were dominant in these h2h meetings, but Midtjylland started pulling things back in the past two season. They did beat the record Champions twice in the space of four matches, both coming at the home turf.
Also, the past 7 meetings between Midtjylland and Copenhagen were full of goals (36). All of them saw both teams netting at least once and the minimum number of goals in each is 4.
Midtjylland vs Copenhagen: Prediction
Copenhagen are an improved side at the tail end of the season, yet Midtjylland along with Brondby are the two most consistent sides in the league. Judging by the recent history between these sides, we can once again expect an open contest on Monday night. To sum up, backing goal markets is the safe way in this particular fixture, considering the strong forms of the teams involved.
