Midtjylland taking on Randers. The match will take place at MCH Arena in Herning on Friday, July 15.
Middletjylland remains a leader in the country’s football. The “Wolves”, which were established in 1999, are still in existence. They quickly advanced and became the champions of the country three times, less than 25 years later. In 2020, the last time gold was achieved was in 2012. The team was crowned vice-champion twice and won the cup in spring, making it the 2nd most successful cup in history. They also aim to be successful in European competitions. The Danes lost only on penalties in the playoffs for the Conference League to PAOK. Bo Henriksen was able to keep his job after this draw. He became a coach in 2021. Recent years have seen good results for
. The Horses are a small club. They were promoted to the Danish Super League in 2012, and took bronze immediately after that. It was not possible to repeat this feat. In the last championship, it was 6th. It was possible to win this cup in 2021 for the second consecutive time (2006 was a success). The Danes were able to reach the Conference League and Randers was 2nd in their group with AZ Jablonec, CFR (Cluj) and CFR (Cluj). Randers made it to the playoffs thanks to this success. However, Leicester won the match and the English team took victory with a score of 3-1 and 4-1. While this did affect the domestic performances, it does not threaten Thomas Thomasberg’s position. In 2018, this mentor assumed the role of head coach and is now rightfully considered to be the key creator of recent Horses’ successes.
Randers won a head to head fight 10 years ago. Then, it was within the cup. Invariably, all four of the last head-to–head fights ended in Midtjylland’s wins. Randers will not be able to reverse this negative trend by partnering with a strong opponent. We back Midtjylland to win again.
Prediction: Midtjylland will win.
