FC Midtjylland vs Viborg
Competition: Danish Superligaen
Date: 19th February 2017
Kick-off: 18:00 CET
FC Midtjylland host Viborg at the MCH Arena in Sunday’s Danish Superligaen clash, and are favourites to come out on top to return to winning ways. The home side have hit a dip in form ahead of this weekend’s meeting but will fancy their chances of a turnaround given the visitors are rock bottom in the division.
Home side FC Midtjylland are currently fourth in the division with 32 points from 21 games, coming of the back of four defeats from their last five, having lost three on the bounce ahead of Sunday’s meeting. Four wins from their last six wins at the MCH Arena sees Midtjylland strong on home soil, but they still need a response given the recent defeats.
Visitors Viborg find themselves rock bottom of the Danish Superligaen with 17 points this season, having lost three and drawn two of their last six games. Away from home, Viborg have suffered five defeats from six ahead of their trip to the MCH Arena – having conceded the second-most amount of goals – and are expected to come unstuck this weekend as a result.
FC Midtjylland vs Viborg: Head to head stats
Viborg have the superior record in recent meetings with Midtjylland, winning one and drawing two of their last three head-to-heads. However, Midtjylland have only lost once to Viborg since 2005. They did lose their last home meeting in the Danish Superligaen, but seldom come unstuck at the MCH Arena which should mean they return to form this weekend.
FC Midtjylland vs Viborg: Prediction
FC Midtjylland are in poor form ahead of their meeting with Viborg but have been more convincing on home soil and have a formidable record at the MCH Arena which should see them getting back to winning ways. The two sides are at opposite ends of the Danish Superligaen table and the gulf in class should be telling. A win should see the hosts move up into the top-three while the visitors can, at best, finish the day in 12th.
