Horsens vs FC Midtjylland Prediction, Preview, Lineups & Betting Tips
Horsens was somehow lucky to reach the Superliga Championship play-offs after five consecutive draws and will play its opening playoff match against title pretenders FC Midtjylland. Twenty-four hours after the game between AaB and Brondby, FCM will need the whole set of points in Horsens, no matter what happens in Aalborg. If “The Wolves” want to track Brondby, they must win by all means, especially if Brondby beat AaB. Anyway, if Brondby slips and FCM wins on the next day, which surely is their objective, Jess Thorup’s side will climb up to the top position before an upcoming home match vs FCK next Monday.

Superliga: Horsens vs FC Midtjylland – Prediction and Betting Tips
Many teams and people kind of underestimate Horsens because they don’t have many class players, but as a team they are very good and they have a very passionate coach since 2014 – Bo Henriksen. However, the 43-years-old Henriksen won’t be able to rely on the suspended key midfielder Ayo Simon Okosun and on the suspended attacker Oliver Drost.
FCM on the other hand is at completely different level, they have played outstanding this season and have very good players all over, good individualities and team spirit. Unfortunately, Jess Thorup yet can’t pick the missing Nigerian duo – Riiwan Hassan and Paul Onauchu, who both recover from injuries. Anyway, they still have good players in face of Marc Dal Hende, Mads Døhr Thychosen, Mikkel Duelund and Gustav Wikheim, who will play either in midfield or around the striker, while another talented Nigerian is expected to lead FCM’s attack – Frank Onyeka.
Horsens are undefeated (1 wins, 5 draws) since their first official match in 2018 – a 0-2 loss to FC Midtjylland at home. Paul Onuachu and Frank Onyeka, who came as a substitution in the closing minutes, were both goal scorers back then and even if Onuachu won’t feature here, we still believe that FCM have enough quality to outplay Horsens. The game is with greater importance for the away team and we place our stake on “The Wolves”: FC Midtjylland to win in Horsens – 1X2 Betting.
