Midtjylland managed to scrape through to the Europa League Playoff round on away goals against Polish underdogs Arka Gdynia last week, but the effort it took to come back from that deficit obviously took it’s toll. They followed it with a 2-1 loss away to the newly promoted FC Helsingor in the Danish Superliga.
The season is still very young, but their away form is a bit of a worry at the moment. They opened the domestic season with a 4-0 thrashing at Brondby, and their only other away day was that loss to Helsingor last weekend.
Fortunately for them they have managed to win both their home games in the league, but it could be difficult to continue that trend on Sunday. They come up against the form side in the Danish top flight.
Nordsjaelland continued their impressive start to the campaign last weekend with a 4-1 thrashing of Lyngby away from home, making it four wins on the bounce for them and taking their goals tally to a huge 12.
Midtjylland know it will be very difficult to stop the rampant Nordsjaelland from scoring, but fortunately the league leaders have proven very vulnerable at the other end of the pitch. They have conceded six goals in four games and are yet to keep a clean sheet.
Midtjylland have scored in three of their four league games this season but have only managed one clean sheet. This has resulted in some high scoring games from both teams, with all but one of their combined eight league fixtures seeing at last three goals. Six of these eight combined matches have had both teams on the scoresheet too. This makes odds of 4/5 for Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score look good value for money, so we’re backing that along with a high scoring 2-2 draw at 10/1.
We’re also opting for Ernest Asante to continue his excellent form for the visitors. He has scored five league goals already this season and hasn’t failed to find the net in any of their four games, so backing him for our anytime goalscorer predictions looks a great choice.
