Odense vs Midtjylland
Date: Sunday, 19 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Nature Energy Park (Odense).
OB and Midtjylland are going to wrap up the Sunday’s action in the 6th round of Danish Superliga.
Home side has a disappointing start of the season as they are sitting on the bottom of the table by snatching just a point from the first five games.
Although Jakob Michelsen’s side is not too bad in the front, they need to improve their defending urgently.
OB also closed the previous season with three defeats in a row and they really need to find the winning formula to get out of the trouble.
However, they had a very successful pre-season where they booked all five victories, but then failed to a poor streak again.
After an insecure start of the campaign, the defending champions tied three victories in a row. They managed to tighten up the defence, while Jakob Poulsen and the lads started producing more goals.
The visitors didn’t have a successful campaign in the Champions League qualifiers, but they managed to reach the playoffs in Europa League.
Midtjylland celebrated in last four clashes with a goal difference 11-2. They are two points behind Copenhagen and are looking forward to keeping up the chase for the top spot.
Odense vs Midtjylland: Head-to-head
Midtjylland celebrated six straight wins against their opponents and in the last eight encounters they missed the chance to win only once.
The visitors managed to keep the clean sheet five times in the last six occasions when playing against OB.
Odense vs Midtjylland: Prediction
Midtjylland are strong favourites in this one and they should take advantage of the opposition’s bad momentum for winning all three points from this trip. Although they are playing at home ground, OB should be looking for points elsewhere.
Both sides have been involved in high scoring clashes lately and they should be able to keep up with that trend. Their head to head clashes have also been pretty efficient, therefore this one should go over 2.5 margin.
