Midtjylland vs Nordsjaelland
Date: Monday, 7 May 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: MCH Arena, Herning.
Midtjylland lost ground to Brondby in the battle for the very top of the Superligaen standings after losing the direct clash to Drengene Fra Vestegnen three weeks ago2-3 at home. The Wolves had a two-goal cushion in that match, but they just could not hold on to the lead.
The team led by Jess Thorup could not recover from such loss in the following game when they were held to a 3-3 draw by AaB whom they dispatched with ease just a week later 3-0 in front of the home crowd at MCH Arena. The gap behind Brondby is still as high as five, but with four games left to play and the H2H clash with the main title challengers upcoming, the hosts still have some sort of chance.
In order to keep it, Thorup and his men need to claim a three-pointer on Monday evening when they are set to drop the curtain to the Matchday No 33, hosting Nordsjaelland in what is expected to be the most interesting tie of the round.
Midtjylland vs Nordsjaelland: Head-to-head
Midtjylland were the more successful outfit over the course of history.
The Wolves won 22 and lost 16 of 51 meetings with the Wild Tigers.
Nordsjaelland only won 4 of 26 matches at MCH Arena in Herning.
All of last six head to head matches ended with both teams scoring at least once.
Midtjylland vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
Nordsjaelland shipped two or more goals in all of last five games in the league, including as many as seven in back-to-back losses to Brondby in last two rounds. They are particularly vulnerable at the back on the road and we do have reasons to expect another high-scoring contest when they travel to Herning to tackle one of league’s best attacking lines on Monday.
The hosts are worth backing to net three or more goals at the odds of 2.20, while the value pick would be Midtjylland to win & BTTS at the 2.50 odds.
