Team News: FC Midtjylland
Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the FC Midtjylland gaffer Bo Henriksen to be concerned with due to a largely intact group. Elías Rafn Ólafsson (Fractured Arm) is out of contention.
It’s our opinion that Ulvene may well go for a 3-4-3 system, beginning the first half with David Ousted, Daniel Hoeegh, Erik Sviatchenko, Juninho, Henrik Dalsgaard, Raphael Onyedika, Evander Ferreira, Joel Andersson, Gustav Isaksen, Anders Dreyer and Junior Brumado.
Team News: Brøndby IF
Owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from, the Brøndby IF boss Niels Fredriksen has zero fitness concerns at all before this match.
From our viewpoint, Drengene fra Vestegnen will likely utilise a 4-1-2-1-2 system, giving starts to Mads Hermansen, Andreas Bruus, Sigurd Rosted, Andreas Maxsoe, Blas Riveros, Joe Bell, Josip Radosevic, Anis Ben Slimane, Mathias Greve, Mathias Kvistgaarden and Marko Divkovic.
In our opinion, Brøndby IF have the capability to break down this FC Midtjylland outfit, however it probably won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
Our tip is for a close game with a 2-1 winning score for FC Midtjylland at the end of this one. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
