Midtjylland vs Vendsyssel
Date: Monday, 11 February 2019
Kick-off @ 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Nord Energi Arena (Hjorring).
FC Midtjylland wraps up the round 21 of 2018/19 Danish Superliga with the away trip to Vendsyssel this Monday.
The Wolves went into the winter break sitting 3 points behind Copenhagen and the gap could be stretches to 6 points if the team from capital city snatch a win against Odense on Sunday.
This, a win is extremely important for Kenneth Andersen’s men as we are in the final quarter of the league season.
Things are totally opposite at Vendsyssel as they are involved in the relegation battle. This is a team that just got promoted and their life in top flight could be cut short if a drastic improvement in results do not come from now.
Vendsyssel went into the winter break on the back of a superb 3-2 win away at Brondby, their first league victory in 6 games.
Midtjylland vs Vendsyssel Head-to-head
Midtjylland bagged an easy 3-0 win when they met Vendsyssel for the first time in Danish Superliga early this season.
Their only other 2 competitive meetings happened in the cup competition, in 2013 and 2007, both games won by the Wolves.
Midtjylland vs Vendsyssel Prediction
It is quite normal to have some rustiness since both teams are off from competitive fixtures since second week of December. This is why I expect a slow start to the game at the Nord Energi Arena.
Yet, I have little doubt on this Midtjylland squad, the defending champions, who hardly drop points against team sitting at the lower half of the league table.
We can confidently back an away win here, while brave punters can even thing of a -1.5 AH on the visitors.
As I mentioned earlier, the match is most likely to open up in the last 30 minutes and thus we may select second half as the highest scoring half of the match.
