FC Copenhagen vs Midtjylland Betting Tips: FC COPENHAGEN TO WIN

While both sides are level on points, a vastly superior goal difference puts FC Copenhagen at the top of the table with three games to go, and Thursday's top-class shoowdown could decide whether the Superliga title remains at Parken for the third consecutive year or goes into other hands.

Following a horrendous start to the Championship round, managing a meager point out of nine on offer, the Lions staged an amazing resurgence by winning all of their next four challenges, with the latest coming against city rivals Brondby in a come-from-behind 3-1 victory to take the top spot in the division for the first time since November 2023.

Long-awaited return to the summit of the Superliga table is something Neestrup's men have been yearning for, and they won't easily let it slip away, yet their league encounters this term with the main title challenger Midtjylland have been anything but successful, with the capital club remaining winless in all three top-flight H2Hs (D1, L2), although they edged past FCM 1-0 in an October Landspokal Cup tie.

Despite being the champions of the regular season, Midtjylland carelessly relinquished their leading position due to unimpressive performances throughout April, where they had only one victory to show from five opening playoff fixtures, but things took a positive turn for FCM in May, where back-to-back narrow successes over Brondby (3-2) and Aarhus (2-1) put them shoulder-to-shoulder with FC Copenhagen at the top.

Both of May's green results came in front of their home crowd, but recent battles on foreign soil present a grim read for the Ulvene, who left their last two away trips with bowed heads in a 1-2 loss to Brondby and a hammering 0-3 by the weakest playoff side Silkeborg, with defensive vulnerability also a concern ahead of the big clash, as FCM have conceded 2+ in four of their last five outings.

If there's anyone who knows how to become champions and win when it matters most on Danish soil, it's undoubtedly FC Copenhagen, a side that should continue their energetic and free-scoring style - netting exactly three times in three consecutive contests in the Championship round - to surge to the top against defensively frail FCM and virtually sealed the deal for a third consecutive Super League crown.

FC Copenhagen team news

Ahead of the top-table clash, FC Copenhagen will definitely be without Nicolai Boilesen and backup goalkeeper Theo Sander, while second-top scorer Ronny Bardghji and seasoned forward Andreas Cornelius are doubtful after missing the last two matches.

Regular defender Elias Jelert will aslo be unavailable for THursday's contest as the 20-year-old received his fifth yellow card in the 3-1 comeback win over Brodby, resulting in a one-match suspension.

Midtjylland team news

Midtjylland will need to assess tha fitness of Andre Former and Ola Brynhildsen before traveling to the Danish capital, as they were not involved in the 2-1 win over Aarhus last time out.

Coach Thomas Thomasberg, by the way, should take to the field with an identical side that showed a reversal of fortunes in May with back-to-back wins over Brondby and the aforementioned Aarhus.
