Venue: MCH Arena.
Round 1 of Denmark Superliga is kick-starting this week as Midtjylland play host Randers in their debut game of the new 2022/23 season. These two teams will be seen clashing at MCH Arena, this Friday.
Midtjylland came close to securing the Superliga title last season and will be hoping to go one step further this year. In the 2015 season, they won the Danish football championship for the first time and later on, they won two league titles in 2018 and 2020. They even qualified to the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in their history, that same year.
The hosts head into this match after a1-2 Club friendly loss against Gent, the previous week. Fixtures involving Midtjylland have often been entertaining ones of late with plenty of scoring expected. Over their past 6 games alone, a grand total of 22 goals have been recorded for both teams combined.
On the other side, Randers claimed 5th place in the division last season and will be happy to avoid defeat away at one of this season’s expected title challengers. As of 2022 the club had won the Danish Cup twice in its history.
The visitors head into this match after a 1-1 Club friendly stalemate against Fredericia. They have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 10 goals overall. In defense, Randers have been far from perfect.

Each of the last three meetings between these two clubs have produced over 2.5 goals with Midtjylland scoring exactly 3 goals in each of their last 3 h2hs. Also the visitors have lost their last 2 away games in a row.
