Midtjylland – Aiming for one better than last season?

Bo Henriksen overseen an eight-game unbeaten sequence as FC Midtjylland manager, comprising six wins and two draws, to close out the 2021-22 season in Denmark. It still wasn’t enough to rein in FC Copenhagen, though, who would hang on to top spot by three points. A third second place finish in four campaigns then for Ulvene (The Wolves) who are 8/5 second favourites to claim their first title since 2020.

Midtjylland displayed an indifference towards playing at home or away in the previous league season, posting near identical records: W10 D2 L4 when at home, W10 D3 L3 on the road. However, what they would excel at when at their MCH Arena was scoring. No Danish Superliga side racked up more home goals than their 32, coming at a rate of two a game. As such, seven of ten home wins featured three or more goals.

Key Stat: Last season, FC Midtjylland preserved their clean sheet in just one of the final six league games – and in two of ten previous encounters as the home side.


Midtjylland Win & Both To Score



Randers – Mid-table specialists with plenty to find?

Successive sixth place finishes for Randers, in 2020-21 and 2021-22, at least highlights a consistency of sorts. They last finished higher in 2015, but are more recently synonymous with mid-table mediocrity. Not that this has held them back from having a say at the top. Very nearly doing Friday’s opponents, Midtjylland, a favour with their 1-0 victory away in Copenhagen during last season’s run-in as an 11/2 underdog.

They were no match for Midtjylland. Beaten on all four occasions the sides clashed last term, managing four goals to the ten of their opponents. Bringing their head-to-head record since their last victory, which was all the way back in 2012, to four draws and 23 losses in 27 SuperLiga meetings. Fairly damning stuff. As was an away goal tally last season of 15 (0.94 per game), the fourth worst in Denmark’s top tier.

Key Stat: Four of seven Randers away defeats in last season’s Danish Superliga were in games to see three or more goals. Among them a 3-2 scoreline on the final day at Friday’s venue.

FC Midtjylland Vs Randers Betting Advice

If the pair’s pre-season warm up games are anything to go by, we should be treated to a fair few goals at MCH Arena. This venue has served up Over 2.5 Goals in nine of 12 prior Superliga meetings between the sides, including the most recent: a 3-2 victory for the hosts, FC Midtjylland. The latter sealing a seventh home win in eight against Randers, whose last road win in this fixtures dates back to 2009!


Midtjylland Vs Randers – Key Facts:

  • These teams met four times during last season’s Danish Superliga. Midtjylland won all four encounters, scoring ten and conceding four. They’re not unbeaten in the league against their opponents since 2012.
  • Midtjylland finished 2021-22 strongly by remaining unbeaten across the last eight Superliga fixtures (W6 D2). This run was bookended by 3-1 and 3-2 victories over Randers, the latter as the home side.
  • Clean sheets were sparse at Midtjylland’s MCH Arena though. Across their final 10 Superliga fixtures in 2021-22, only two yielded a clean sheet for Bo Henriksen’s side.


I’m slightly wary of backing the hosts on this occasion however. Ulvene were beaten 2-1 by Odense in their very first Superliga outing last term, which was also at their MCH Arena in the West of Denmark. Randers would also make a strong start in 2021-22, opening with four wins in five with three of these successes coming on the road. With this in mind, the cautious approach is backing another goal laden meeting.
