Danish Superliga leaders Midtjylland continue their Atlantic Cup group stage campaign on Monday night when they face Swedish top flight side Göteborg in Portugal.

Midtjylland have been cooking with gas this season. The Wolves currently sit on top of the tree in the Danish Superliga and have lost only three of their seventeen league games so far. However, Thomas Thomasberg's men didn’t start their Atlantic Cup group stage campaign the way they would have liked, losing 1-2 to Norwegian side Molde and will be keen to respond on Monday.

Göteborg meanwhile finished their 2023 campaign in 9th place in the Allsvenskan, but that is good for a team that narrowly avoided relegation the previous season. The Angels have performed poorly of late though, winning just one of their last eight league games and also started their Atlantic Cup group stage campaign with a 2-3 defeat to Silkeborg on Friday night.

Midtjylland vs IFK Göteborg Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Scoring goals has been Midtjylland's biggest weapon this season. The Wolves scored at least twice in 12 of their last 15 games in all competitions, but kept just four clean sheets in that spell. Each of their last six games has produced at least five goals, and we expect this trend to continue on Monday.

Gothenburg may not be able to score many goals, but they rarely go scoreless. Jens Berthel Askou's side have only failed to score in two of their last eight games, and five of those games featured at least three goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Midtjylland vs IFK Göteborg prediction: 2-1

IFK Göteborg team news

Göteborg will continue to rely on the services of Arbnor Muçolli, Gustaf Norlin and Thomas Santos, who together contributed 19 goals and assists last season.

After conceding three goals against Silkeborg on Matchday 1, head coach Jens Berthel Askou is likely to make some changes in defence.

Johan Bångsbo and Anders Trondsen are among those who will be hoping to make the most of this shake-up.
