Midtjylland vs Lyngby by Isaiah
Midtjylland comes from two consecutive victories now, as the firstly won over champions from Copenhagen 3:2 in front of own fans, but then also on the road to Nordsjaelland last Saturday evening with the same 3:2 result. It was obvious that the players of Midtjylland desired the victory much more and open the game very strongly from the off.
They took the lead already in first minute via Onuachu, while same player doubled up their lead in 29th minute, with Romer writing 3:0 on the scoreline in 72nd minute. However, they stood playing with a man less in 74th minute when dfefensive midfielder Drachmann got red carded, with the hosts reducing four minutes later via Bartolec. Moreover, their defender Halsti also left the field with a red card in 87th minute, making the end of the match very interesting as the hosts reduced again in fifth minute of additional time via Maxso, but had no time to make more threatening situations anymore.
They will now have to do without suspended defender Markus Halsti (15/0) and defensive midfielder Janus Drachmann (9/0) due red cards, while left back and sometimes offensive player Marc Dal Hende (4/0) accumulated yellow cards, with other midfielder, Tim Sparv (4/0) remaining injured.
Lyngby, on the other side, comes from a 3:1 home victory over Copenhagen last Sunday afternoon, as the team used the opportunity of visiting side playing without competitive motive and having Cup's finals few days later, to get a convincing and much needed victory against a strong and reputable club.
Even though players of Copenhagen weren't outplayed, nothing close to that and actually were just a bit better overall, it must be said that the desire of home players was bigger, as they took the lead in 16th minute via Rygaard Jensen, while Jonasson and Odgaard increaed their lead a bit against the flow of the match in last fifteen minutes of the match, with Pavlovic reducing the final score to 3:1 in second minute of additional time.
Visitors continue to miss central defender and team captain Mathias Tauber (25/1) with a knee injury. Offensive left winger/forward David Boysen (14/2) has suspension due yellow cards limit reach.
With this game being the last round of Superliga and just a point difference between two teams, this game comes as a very important one for both of the sides. Midtjylland needs to get a victory in order to keep secure the Europa League qualifiers high, while Lyngby comes in good form and would fulfill the target with a point as well. However, with Midtjylland being a home team and in a must win situation, I can't see this game but being very open and attacking one from both sides, since the game comes pretty much as "all or nothing", while they both do work better in attack than what their defensive lineup stands reliable.
