Silkeborg vs Midtjylland
Denmark – Superliga
Date: Monday, 5 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:05 UK
Venue: JYSK Park, Silkeborg.
Intense battle between Midtjylland and Brodby for the top of Danish Superliga continues. The Bears have had huge advantage in late 2017, but narrow lost to the biggest rivals on Thursday night and a couple of other slip ups have made that advantage disappear. I personally was impressed with the efficiency Midtjylland presented in the first half of the championship and the way they demolished the reigning champions FC Copenhagen. Beating Silkeborg on Monday night is a must for them to keep up!
Even though they are going against the 9th placed team on the table, bookies are heavily backing The Bears at 1.53 for the win. Silkeborg collected 27 points from the 23 duels so far, still hoping to start series of victories which could push them into the top 6 positions. 2018 have brought some good results to their fans (victories against AaB and Sonderjyske), but the unbeaten run was interrupted on Thursday with convincing 3-1 loss to Nordsjaelland.
Midtjylland are having amazing stats up front, bagging 55 goals (2nd highest in the league), but the back line is rarely keeping a clean sheet. That happened in only one out of the last nine encounters across competitions.
Silkeborg vs Midtjylland: Head-to-head
Silkeborg have caused a lot of troubles to Midtjylland in the last three meetings, having won two of those. When it comes to the previous duels at this stadium only, visitors have small 8-7 lead in terms of victories. Midtjylland won the first meeting against Silkeborg in July 2017 comfortably 3-0.
Silkeborg vs Midtjylland: Prediction
Midtjylland have struggled a lot to cause some threat to Brondby’s defenders on Thursday night. On the other hand, Silkeborg have stepped up recently and performed great at this stadium. I am expecting to see a lot of goals, and potential upset. BTTS is the main bet, while double chance home win or draw should be backed with small stake.
