Midtjylland vs Esbjerg Match Preview
Midtjylland failed to challenge Copenhagen for the title late in the campaign and sit 11 points behind the crowned champions as they host Esbjerg on Saturday, who seemingly have a lot more to play for at MCH Arena as they sit 3rd with just a one-point gap to the 4th placed OB.
Ulvene have seen a convincing 4-1 loss at Brondby just days after beating the rivals in DBU Pokalen (on penalties after a 1-1 draw) as their unpredictable run through April and May continued. They will now want to end the campaign in a good mood but could be in for a tough challenge.
Esbjerg have struggled for consistency on the road and have been regularly conceding goals, which will feel more worrying. They’ve beaten Copenhagen in a seven-goal thriller on Sunday and will now want to rather build on such a display in the final third, which promises a thrilling contest on the day.
EFB have suffered just one loss in their last eight outings too and this should have them just as motivated here, despite possibly the toughest challenge yet. They’ve been scoring and conceding numbers of goals lately and we feel we’re in for another such occasion in Herning.
We will now stick our necks out for Esbjerg to snatch an important point and this could still see them out of the Europa League spots too, where we back a Draw at 11/4 with William Hill and hope for a tough deadlock to break.
We still hope to see goals and with both sides’ recent goalscoring (as well as the poor defensive tally) in mind, going for a Yes on Both teams to score feels like buying money for old rope at 4/9 with bet365. We’ve seen both regularly enjoying such clashes lately and this looks like another such occasion in the making.
