Midtjylland vs Horsens Prediction & Betting tips
Two games have to be completed in the Danish Superligaen before the long-awaited playoffs begin. The points are taken over and two games are played against the top teams in the league. Therefore, despite the comfortable lead from league leaders FC Midtjylland, it remains exciting in the title race.
Danish football had been off for almost three months. The teams will have to prepare for the crucial playoffs after the long season break. This applies to the upper but also to the lower half of the table, where the struggle for relegation will intensify in just under two weeks. On matchday 25 there will be a duel between Midtjylland and Horsens.
The best bookmakers see the league leaders as favorites in the Monday duel between Midtjylland and Horsens according to odds. There is no alternative to predicting this on the 1X2 market, but no really profitable quotes are currently being offered. Accordingly, alternative bets, such as half-time / final or handicap bets, should be considered in this match.
It is important for FC Midtjylland to maintain the good starting position for the playoffs with two wins. In addition, the “Ulvene” want to find their rhythm again after the long game break. AC Horsens may find the league leaders comfortable this game day. With 42 goals conceded in 24 games, the tenth placed the second weakest defensive of the superleagues.
It is quite possible that FC Midtjylland will deliver a rifle festival on Monday afternoon. Further tips on the Monday games of the Danish Superligaen can be found in the betting base section International soccer tips.
FC Midtjylland is on course for the title. The decisive championship playoffs are scheduled for the “Ulvene” in just under two weeks. If the current cushion of points is maintained, the league leaders of the Superligaen start the playoffs by a lead of twelve points. The favorite role in the title race is therefore understandable.
In the playoffs, FC Copenhagen is undisputedly the only serious title competitor. As in the previous season, there will probably be a duel between the two top Danish clubs. If the “Ulvene” can continue the strong regular season before the season breaks, the third championship in club history is within reach.
The championship leader will want to minimize the risk of injury on the last two match days of the regular season. Nevertheless, the best contingent of the “Ulvene” can be expected, especially since every point loss leads to a worse starting position in the playoffs. On Monday, the championship leader can warm up in the duel against the second worst defense of the Superligaen.
Since the beginning of the second half of the season, the “Ulvene” have not conceded a single goal in the four games this calendar year. The clean slate has been preserved against teams such as Lyngby, Hobro, Sonderjyske and Randers. Compared to the offensives of the youngest opponents, there is now a comparatively easier task for the defensive bulwark of the leaders.
In the 24 games of the regular season, FC Midtjylland have only conceded 13 goals. Cross-season, this is the best defensive value of the Superligaen since the 2016/17 season. It is precisely these defensive qualities that could make the difference in the playoffs. The quote from the US sport “Offensive wins games, Defensive wins championships” can certainly be transferred to the “Ulvene”.
Coach Brian Priske will have no serious losses at home against AC Horsens. In the test game almost a week ago, the 43-year-old coach of the “Ulvene” last rotated the entire team. Now Priske will probably bet on his regular elf again.
AC Horsens can no longer leave a place in the relegation playoffs. The fact that “Den Gule Fare” should not be underestimated, however, was felt recently by the table runners-up from Copenhagen. Before the almost three-month break in the season, the guests from Horsens succeeded in a surprising away coup with the Danish record champions.
According to the statistics from the regular season, the relegation of AC Horsens is not yet fixed. In contrast to last season, there are three direct relegations. In the next season, only twelve teams will be represented in the Danish Superligaen. It is all the more important for AC Horsens to make up for the upcoming playoffs.
The fact that the team has qualities has already been proven against FC Copenhagen. However, there is a lack of consistency to call up such services over the season. After the long break, the momentum from the victory over the Danish record champions should have evaporated again. At Midtjylland vs. Horsens is not really recommended to guests.
This season only Silkeborg (53) conceded more goals than Horsens (42). On average there were 1.75 goals conceded per game for “Den Gule Fare”, including high defeats against Nordsjaelland (0: 6) and Aalborg (0: 4). How difficult the upcoming away game for the league leaders will be, is also made clear by the offensive values of the tenth.
AC Horsens is the second worst offensive in the league and has to line up at the strongest defensive bulwark. The long-time coach Bo Henriksen will also have two serious failures. Neither Ayo Simon Okosun nor Bjarke Jacobsen will be available at the restart. Both midfielders are missing a yellow card.
In view of the fact that two key players – including the important six-player Okosun – are now missing, Midtjylland vs. Horsens hardly anything for a forecast on the guests.
