Horsens – Has the bubble been burst?

On seven points after four Superliga games (W2 D1 L1), Horsens can be reasonably satisfied with their early endeavours. As one of two newly-promoted sides, Horsens – last season’s 1. division champions – have defied early expectations to occupy fourth in the table, sitting five off the lead. Maintaining this momentum is now the key, particularly after seeing their unbeaten start ended last time out against Randers.

A 1-0 loss away to a side which finished sixth last term shouldn’t cause too much consternation. Of greater concern, though, has to be the lack of goals we’ve been seeing in matches so far. There has been only three goals (2 for, 1 conceded) spread across Horsens’ first four Superliga outings, with this at least four fewer than any other side in the Danish top-flight. Randers being the first to score past them in 2022-23.

Key Stat: Having earned a 1-0 win in their sole home fixture so far this season, AC Horsens are now up to 10 home league games without losing (W6 D4).


Under 2.5 Goals



Midtjylland – Change of manager had desired affect?

Five consecutive seasons finishing in either first (twice) or second (three) meant expectations were naturally high coming into the season. Four games in and it is fair assessment to say early performances had been underwhelming. Those in charge were clearly of a similar opinion because, after taking a point from the first two games, Bo Henriksen was dismissed as manager. The response from the team has been stark.

Although a permanent head coach is still to be appointed, the players are thriving once more. They have since taking four points from two subsequent Superliga outings, following up an electric performance in their 5-1 away win over Odense by racing into a 3-0 lead with 32 minutes gone of last week’s contest at Lyngby. They ended up drawing the latter, however, leaving them languishing eighth (W1 D2 L1).

Key Stat: FC Midtjylland have gone ahead in three of their opening four Superliga games this season but went on to win only one of these contests.

Horsens Vs Midtjylland Betting Advice

For a side that has put up one win from Matchday 1 to 4 of this season’s Superliga, it is true Midtjylland are on the short side at 4/5 to win Friday’s contest at the CASA Arena Horsens. A ground where the home side, Horsens, are currently enjoying a 10-game unbeaten league run (W6 D4). Most of those games were played in the second tier, though, and a visit from the second best team in the country is a considerable upgrade.


Horsens Vs Midtjylland – Key Facts:

  • Last season’s second tier champions, AC Horsens, boast a better record (7 points; W2 D1 L1) through the first four rounds of the 2022-23 Danish Superliga than last season’s top tier runners-up, FC Midtjylland (5 points; W1 D2 L1).
  • Horsens will strive to preserve a 10-game unbeaten league run at home (W6 D4), albeit nine of these games were played in the division below. Just three of these games, meanwhile, saw them bank a clean sheet.
  • Midtjylland’s games so far have seen a total of 18 goals (10 scored, 8 conceded) with all of these games seeing BTTS and only one not going Over 2.5. This is 15 more than Horsens whose four fixtures thus far all featured Under 2.5 Goals and BTTS No.


Tuesday’s Champions League exit will also fuel the visitor’s motivation, as they look get back on track domestically and ensure they qualify next season. Eight scored across their last two Superliga fixtures suggests a team back to something like their former selves, and a similarly potent display would be enough for all three points against opponents in Horsens who’ve scored only twice in four Superliga games thus far.
