The Danish top flight season commences on Friday night with the opening fixture featuring a clash between Midtjylland and Esbjerg as the betting tips continue at the MCH Arena.

Midtjylland Prediction – Can Midtjylland get off to a good start?

After finishing runners-up to perennial Danish champions, Copenhagen, at the end of last season, Midtjylland will be aiming to go one step better this time around.

A margin of 11 points separated them from the Superliga champions at the end of the second phase of the season in the Championship Round group.

This margin was down to inconsistent results by Midtjylland in the second phase of the season, and this has seemed to continue in pre-season too.

Midtjylland finished last season by losing 3 of their last 4 matches overall which included defeats to OB, Brondby and tonight’s opponents, Esbjerg.

Pre-season matches saw Friday night’s hosts lose 2 of their 3 games played with defeats incurred against Esbjerg (again) and Polish club, Lech Poznan.

Following an excellent unbeaten run of 16 matches in all competitions on home turf at their MCH Arena, inconsistency crept in.

A 0-0 draw with Nordsjaelland was followed by wins over OB and Copenhagen but also losses to Brondby and Esbjerg.

Forward, Onuachu (14 goals) was Midtjylland’s top scorer last season.

Esbjerg Prediction – Can Esbjerg strike again?

Although they find themselves away from home in this opening match of the new Danish Superliga season, Esbjerg won’t be too fazed by this.

The visitors have won their last two visits to the MCH Arena against tonight’s opponents, Midtjylland, and will be aiming for a third win on the trot here.

Unlike Midtjylland, Esbjerg finished last season in strong fashion as they lost just 1 of their last 9 matches overall in the Superliga.

This impressive run-in saw Esbjerg claim 5 wins with victories over Nordsjaelland, Brondby (home and away), Copenhagen and Midtjylland.

Their one defeat during this 9-match sequence was a heavy 4-1 loss at OB, but the visitors still managed to get on the scoresheet.

Away from home, Esbjerg also finished in positive fashion as they won 3 of their final 4 matches on their travels in the Danish top flight.

Victories at Nordsjaelland, Brondby and Midtjylland helped Esbjerg finish their domestic season on a high note.


Key-Facts – Midtjylland v Esbjerg

  • Midtjylland lost 3 of their last 4 matches at the end of last season
  • Esbjerg won 3 of their last 4 away matches of last season
  • 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict
