Brøndby IF manager Niels Fredriksen will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash thanks to a completely healthy group available for selection.
Team News: FC Midtjylland
From a largely full-strength squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the FC Midtjylland gaffer Brian Priske to be concerned about. Mikkel Andersen (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game.
We’re envisaging that Brøndby IF might need a bit of good fortune to get anything against this FC Midtjylland side who we think will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore see a very even contest with a 0-1 winning score for FC Midtjylland when the full-time whistle blows.
We’ll see what happens.
