Midtjylland vs Odense PREVIEW & PREDICTION 07/12/2018

Danish league match between Midtjylland and Odense.

They face the 2nd and the 3rd classified of the league with clear local favoritism despite being only one place above their opponents. Even so, there are 11 points of difference between both teams.

The premises are in a situation similar to last year’s, where they became champions; and they are in the high zone, 3 points behind the leader Copenhagen. Odense, for its part, has improved its performance compared to last season, in which I fight in the relegation group; but still I see him far from his rivals today.

Midtjylland has a total of 38 points, the result of 11 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. They have scored 44 goals while they have conceded 18. playing at home there is no one to cough; 8 vitorias and 1 draw; without knowing the defeat. That tie was before the Aarhus surprisingly, but that already in the 1st day; since then, all victories. With a goalscorer balance of 28 goals in favor and 6 against, his last performances have been: 5-0; 3-2 (Brondby); 3-0; 5-2; 3-1. As we see a large number of goals and loose wins except Brondby, which is a strong team.

Odense, on the other hand, is surprising both locals and strangers, placed in 3rd place ahead of teams like Brondby (although it is true that they are tied on points). They accumulate a total of 27 points, the result of 7 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses; where they have managed to score 25 goals and fit 18. In their displacements are placed in the middle of the table, with 3 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 11 goals and conceded as many.

Regarding the last performances between both teams, we are very optimistic because:

04.12.17 SL Midtjylland Odense 3: 1
28.11.16 SL Midtjylland Odense 1: 0
22.04.16 SL Midtjylland Odense 2: 0
31.07.15 SL Midtjylland Odense 1: 0
23.02.15 SL Midtjylland Odense 3: 0

As we see, we would always have green or null. However, seeing the offensive potential of the locals and the few goals that fit make us go with that local victory with Asian handicap -1 with stake 2.

PREDICTION: Midtjylland to win @ 1.72
