Midtjylland vs Silkeborg: Prediction
Superliga table-toppers Midtjylland maintained their excellent form with a 2-1 win away to Odense. They come into this game on the back of a six-game winning streak, scoring 13 goals in the process, including a 4-1 demolition of FC Copenhagen.
With 14 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat, Midtjylland are seven points clear of FCK and 13 points ahead of Brondby.
FCM have win-draw-loss record of 6-1-1 with 12:5 goal difference at MCH Arena this season, averaging 1.50 goals scored per game, whilst shipping 0.63 per bout. They have won their last two fixtures at this venue – vs FCK and Randers (2-1).
With just seven points from 17 games, Silkeborg are dead-last on the ladder, two wins away from Esbjerg. The newcomers, managed by Kent Nielsen, have claimed only one win so far this season – vs AGF Aarhus on the road, achieved on October 20th.
Since then, they drew with Hobro (1-1) and lost three on the trot – to Brondby (0-1), Horsens (1-2) and Esbjerg (1-2).
SIF are not the league’s worst travelers – they have picked up 6 points from 9 games on the road. They have an average of 1.44 goals scored per match (above league average), but they tend to concede more than anyone else – 2.44 per tie.
With depressing odds around 1.15 for a home win, it’s not difficult to guess the outcome.
Midtjylland are two classes above Silkeborg and anything but a comprehensive home victory on Monday would represent an upset.
Silkeborg’s attacking style of football gives me hope that we might see an entertaining, high-scoring game here . With 4-1 hunch, I’ll take the two-time Danish champions to win & both teams to score and pick over 3.5 as an alternative bet.
