FC Midtjylland vs FC Copenhagen Prediction, Preview, Lineups & Betting Tips
The title race in Danish Superliga continues on Monday night, 9 April 2018, when FC Midtjylland welcomes last year’s champion FC Copenhagen, who apparently won’t be able to defend its trophy. The question is whether FC Midtjylland will win their second ever Superliga trophy after the one from 2015 or Brondby will win the league for the first time since 2005. If “The Wolves” from Jutland want to stay on top they must chase a mandatory success over the team from capital Copenhagen that shows progress in the last couple of weeks, winning its last six league games. However, FCK’s last domestic defeat was exactly against FCM when Jess Thorup’s men have won 3-1 at home in mid-February, achieving a full comeback without the two injured Nigerians – Rilwan Hassan and Paul Onuachu, who are still questionable. Frank Onyeka, Mikkel Duelund and Marc Dal Hende were the goalscorers for FC Midtjylland, while Pieros Sotiriou gave the lead to FC Copenhagen.

Superliga: FC Midtjylland vs FC Copenhagen – Prediction and Betting Tips
Now, already knocked out of the Danish Cup from rivals Brondby, “The Lions” from Copenhagen hope to climb up to the third Superliga position, which will award them a Europa League position. Despite their 2-1 win over FC Nordsjælland last Monday, Stale Solbakken’s men are still six points behind third-placed FCN, who have won 3-1 vs AaB on Friday night. So an eventual win over FCM in Herning will reduce the gap back to three points but FC Midtjylland can’t afford losing as well.
FC Midtjylland returns back home after a narrow success in Horsens last Tuesday, which leveled them back on top alongside Brondby, but their opponents are currently first due to the better goal difference they have. Furthermore, Brondby have a home match against Horsens on Sunday afternoon so if they achieve an anticipated victory there – they’ll sit on top individually, at least for a little more than 24 hours. Update: Brondby succeeded to beat Horsens 5-1 and now have three points more than FC Midtjylland.
We expect goals at the “MCH Arena” in Herning on Monday evening. Our betting experts recommend a bet on “Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 Goals” – that was a winning bet in each of the last seven meetings between FC Midtjylland and FC Copenhagen.
