FC Midtjylland vs FC Nordsjaelland
Denmark – Superligaen Championship Playoff
Date: Friday, 17 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: MCH Arena.
The Wolves have already ensured themselves the Danish title, and have taken the title from the hands of Copenhagen in style. They have been so dominant this season, that they have a lead of 16 points over the second-placed Copenhagen, and that too with three more match-days remaining.
Their defense has been the prime reason for their superiority this campaign. In fact, had the Wild Tigers one more goal, they would have let in exactly double the number of goals as that of their counterparts.
Considering the results of h2h clashes (which have predominantly been in favor of the new champions), and their impressive form all through this campaign – expect a Midtjylland win this Friday.

Midtjylland vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
The Wolves have crowned themselves champions of the league, and with their impending CL qualifiers in mind, they would love to extend their impressive run.
Their backline deserves immense praise for this achievement. They have conceded a total of 23 goals so far – while the next best is 37 goals.
On the other hand, the Wild Tigers are placed dead-last in the Championship Group, and with just three matches remaining, they have zero chance of making it to Europe. Keep note that they were winless in seven of their last eight overall match-ups.
Going on, the toppers are on a four-match winning run in h2h matches, and have recorded the last ten such wins as well. They have also registered 19 of the preceding 23 wins at this stadium against this foe.
Taking into account these observations, expect a dominating win by Midtjylland this Friday.
