4-3 - Lost
Midtjylland welcome current league leaders Nordsjaelland in the 5th round of the Danish league season. Home team have had a mixed first 4 matches winning both games played at home and losing both away matches. They will be particularly disappointed with the manner of their loss against league newcomers Helsingor last weekend by 2-1. Of particular concern is their defense line that has only kept one clean sheet in the last 6 games. They also have an away trip to Apollon in the Europa league four days later which I think will be a slight distraction to them especially considering the quality of their opponent in this game.
Nordsjaelland have been brilliant so far winning all four opening games and scoring an impressive 12 goals which is an average of 3 goals per game. One plus for them this season is that they have no European commitment unlike Midtjylland and Kobenhavn whose domestic form is taking a hit due to their involvement in European club qualifiers.
Midtjylland have always had the better of the h2h clashes and have won 4 of the last 5. But there is not a better time for the away side to break that duck than right now. There are in superb goal scoring form, they have no commitment else where, all they need to do is focus on the league and although I agree this is a very risky bet, I think I will take my chances and back the away side on the DNB market where we get our stake returned in case it ends in a draw. Goodluck.
