A home win is expected from this fixture if the league table is anything to judge by. The Midtjylland fans are optimistic that the difference between 1st and Horsens's 10th place in the table will show on the pitch.
This should be an interesting game with lots of spark and energy as both teams are well rested since they last saw competitive action. Game on!
Midtjylland are already the Superliga winners and can relax with the season objective secured. If they do relax it might give the away team a slightly better chance in this one. Horsens are nearing the end of this stay in this division as relegation is now unavoidable.
