Viborg FF will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-0 Superliga loss in their previous game against FC Copenhagen.
In that game, Viborg FF managed 41% possession and 8 shots at goal with 2 on target. At the other end, FC Copenhagen got 21 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. Roony Bardghji (8') and Denis Vavro (48') scored for FC Copenhagen.
It’s been seldom in recent times where Viborg FF have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Viborg FF have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 7 goals during that time. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
Looking at their past form shows that Viborg FF:
- are winless against FC Midtjylland in their last 7 league games.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
FC Midtjylland will go into the clash following on from a 0-13 DBU Pokalen win as they beat Aabenraa in their last fixture.
For FC Midtjylland, goals were scored by André Rømer (8'), Adam Gabriel (16'), Ola Brynhildsen (36'), Marrony (44') and Charles (83', 90').
The stats tell the story, and FC Midtjylland have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 9 goals in total. In defence, FC Midtjylland have some weaknesses to address.
Coming into this fixture, FC Midtjylland are undefeated by Viborg FF when having played them away from home in the previous 9 league matches. What an away run they have had against them.

Team News: Viborg FF
The Viborg FF manager Jacob Friis doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of before this game with a completely injury-free group available for selection.
It seems likely that De Grønne will probably use a 4-3-3 system for the game, handing starts to Lucas Lund Pedersen, Daniel Anyembe, Zan Zaletel, Nicolas Buergy, O. B. Kristensen, Jakob Bonde, Jeppe Groenning, Magnus Westergaard, Ibrahim Said, Anosike Ementa and Serginho.
Team News: FC Midtjylland
From our viewpoint, Ulvene appear most likely to utilise a 4-4-2 formation by sending out Jonas Loessl, Adam Gabriel, Juninho, Mads Bech, Paulinho, Oliver Soerensen, Armin Gigovic, Iver Fossum, Aral Simsir, Franculino and Gue-Sung Cho.
Our thinking is that FC Midtjylland and Viborg FF could well cancel each other out, with goals at a real premium.
A draw is a real possibility, as a clear-cut winner doesn’t appear to be obvious. Therefore, we predict a tight encounter with a 0-0 draw by the conclusion of this game.
