FC Midtjylland is welcoming FC Nordsjaelland to MCH Arena in round 8 of Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Despite losing their latest Superliga game, Midtjylland is the new champion because they have 16 points to spare in front of Copenhagen, and there are only 3 games left in the season. Midtjylland is at the top of the standings with 78 points, solid 33 scored goals, and only 23 conceded goals, which make Midtjylland the best defensive team in the league. In their last Superliga game against Aarhus, Midtjylland has had 61% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. Midtjylland has lost this game 3-0. Mabil is Midtjylland’s top goalscorer with 8 goals, while Kaba and Evander have 7 goals. Evander also added 9 assists. Olsen, Isaksen, Sparv, and Riis are all injured and none of them will be in the lineup for this game. Winning the title this early makes the season less competitive, and Midtjylland can now relax until the end of the season. I’m sure Midtjylland won’t just roll over because it’s a lot better to end the season with a win than with a loss, but I don’t expect Midtjylland to play some tough soccer and risk additional injuries. Well, nothing else to say, except, congratulations, Midtjylland.
Nordsjaelland is the worse team in the Championship Round, well, maybe not the worse, but in the worst form for sure. In their last 7 games in the Championship Round, Nordsjaelland has won only 1 game, lost 4, while the other 2 ended in a draw. With 46 points, Nordsjaelland is in the last place of the Championship Round standings, and they could go a spot higher, but seeing how terrible their form is, I don’t see Nordsjaelland anywhere but the last place. With 54 scored goals, Nordsjaelland is the best offensive team in Superliga, but with 45 conceded goals, they are the worst defensive team in the Championship Round. Nordsjaelland hasn’t won any of their last 4 games while conceding 7 goals, and scoring 0 goals during that stretch. Kudus and Damsgaard have both scored 11 goals for Nordsjaelland this season, while Atanga added 7 goals. Rygaard added 6 assists. In their last game against Aalborg at home, Nordsjaelland was the better team with 59% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 83% of the correct passes. Despite having a lot of good chances, Nordsjaelland wasn’t able to score a goal, and this game ended in a 0-0 draw. Nordsjaelland did get into the Championship Round, but everything after that was a disappointment for Nordsjaelland. Hopefully, the next season will be better for them.
The trends are on Midtjylland’s side but seeing how they have already won the title could make Midtjylland relax and approach this game without full focus. Nordsjaelland hasn’t scored a goal in their last 4 games, but I think they will finally get one here.
