Midtjylland vs OB Odense (By: Meese)
After defeat away to Copenhagen, players of Midtjylland managed to respond with far better performance and a win taken away to Randers last Sunday with a 1:2 result. It was even more open game than what the final result says, with the guests probably deserving even high margin victory. they are now three points behind leaders from Copenhagen and need badly another win here.
Odense comes from yet another win, their fourth consecutive in Superliga as the side won 2:0 comfortably at home Vendyssel last weekend. With a goal from Kadrii in each halftime, it wasn't much of a task against a very defensive opponent. It was their eighth consecutive game without defeat, as they have climbed up now to share the third position together with Brondby.
Forward Dovbyk (2/0) and midfielder Okosun (8/0) are injured for the home side, while suspended should be defender Sviatchenko (13/1) and forward Onuachu (16/10). Goalkeeper Mande remains long-term absentee for the guests.
These two teams are next to each other on the table and Odense is in a good form, but the individual quality still speaks in favor of the visiting side, at least in my eyes. Midtjylland does extremely well in front of own fans this season and should have no problems winning against Odense that still remains modest on the road, even though it must be said that they miss two important players.
