Our prediction for this Denmark Superliga match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Brondby, Midtjylland will be looking to return to winning ways in Superliga when they host Aarhus at their MCH Arena. The league leaders aim to move one step closer to winning the title, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football game. First-choice goalkeeper Jesper Hansen has overcome his injury, but Brazilian midfielder Evander is likely to miss the Aarhus game after picking up a knock in the clash against Brondby.
David Jean Nielsen’s troops, on the other hand, defeated Nordsjaelland 2-1 in their last league match, with key attacker Patrick Mortensen scoring his 14th goal of the game. Aarhus aim to stay in the race for a place in the Europa League, and seeing that Midtjylland have been having their ups and downs of late, share of spoils is on the cards.
Highlighted Team (Midtjylland):
Despite being founded on February 2, 1999, FC Midtjylland is considered one of the best Danish clubs. The Wolves have quickly established themselves as one of the dominant forces in Superliga, with the team clinching their first league title in the 2014/15 season.
Three seasons later Midtjylland repeated the success, with the team finishing the process four points clear of second-place Brondby. In the 2019/20 season the Wolves won their third domestic trophy, leaving Danish giants Copenhagen in the second place. Midtjylland welcome their rivals at MCH Arena, the venue which can hold up to 11,432 people.
In the 2020/21 season the Wolves did well to book their place in the Champions League group stages, with the team being grouped with the likes of Liverpool, Ajax, and Atalanta. Midtjylland are well known for their excellent scouting system, with a number of young and talented players from Africa joining the club year by year.
