Team News: FC Midtjylland
Pablo Ortiz (Foot Injury) and Júnior Brumado (Muscle Injury) are not available for FC Midtjylland boss Albert Capellas.
We think that Ulvene may well go for a 4-3-3 system for the game featuring Jonas Loessl, Joel Andersson, Henrik Dalsgaard, Erik Sviatchenko, Paulinho, Kristoffer Olsson, Emiliano Martinez, Evander Ferreira, Anders Dreyer, Sory Kaba and Gustav Isaksen.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there’s just the one fitness problem for the FC Copenhagen boss Jess Thorup to contend with. Akinkunmi Amoo (Ruptured knee ligament) won’t be in action.
From our viewpoint, FCK could decide to make use of a 4-3-3 formation, going with Mathew Ryan, Kevin Diks, Denis Vavro, Davit Khocholava, Victor Kristiansen, H. Arnar Haraldsson, Zeca, Marko Stamenic, I. B. Johannesson, Viktor Claesson and Mohamed Daramy.
We feel that FC Copenhagen and FC Midtjylland should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw. We’re therefore anticipating a very even match with a 1-1 scoreline at full-time.
