Team News: FC Midtjylland
Oliver Olsen (Unknown Injury), Kristian Dirks Riis (Unknown Injury), Tim Sparv (Calf Problems) and Gustav Isaksen (Knee Surgery) are not available for Midtjylland boss Brian Priske.
In our view, Ulvene look set to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game, utilising Mikkel Andersen, Marc Dal Hende, Rasmus Nicolaisen, Alexander Scholz, Dion Cools, Frank Onyeka, Evander, Anders Dreyer, Ronnie Schwartz, Awer Mabil and Sory Kaba.
Team News: Aalborg BK
Due to a mostly full-strength group, there is only the one fitness problem for the Aalborg BK boss Jacob Friis to be concerned with. Aramis Kouzine (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
We reckon that Aalborg appear most likely to make use of a 3-4-3 lineup by sending out Jacob Rinne, Rasmus Thelander, Jores Okore, Mathias Ross Jensen, Kristoffer Pallesen, Malthe Höjholt, Robert Kakeeto, Lukas Klitten, Tom van Weert, Patrick Olsen and Oliver Klitten.
In this match, Aalborg BK will surely be able to find the back of the net against this FC Midtjylland outfit, but it is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re predicting a very close game with a 2-1 victory for FC Midtjylland when the full-time whistle blows. There looks to be little in this one.
