This season started disastrously for Midtjylland. After just four games, head coach Bo Henriksen was fired and four weeks later a replacement still hasn’t been found. Even after his departure, form didn’t improve and Midtjylland continues to record very poor results.
After five rounds in the Danish Superliga, Midtyjlland is in seventh place with six points. They won only one game and in the last two rounds they conceded a total of six goals against Horsens and Lyngby. Only Odense conceded more goals than Midtyjlland so far. This is something that new coach will have to fix urgently if this club wants to fight for the title again.
The only good thing is that they managed to qualify for the Europa League group stage, so good football will be played in Herning at least until November. Midtjylland has good players, but there are obviously some problems within locker room that are causing poor results. In the last two rounds, they led 3:0 at road against Lyngby and Horsens but didn’t win. It ended 3:3 both times.
Last season, Aarhus fought to avoid relegation in the Danish Superliga until the last round. In the end, they finished in 10th place, just one point ahead of Vejle. Because of this, there were certain changes during this summer, so former head coach David Nielsen left Aarhus after five years. Experienced Uwe Rosler was hired instead.
Aarhus sold big talent Albert Gronbaek to Bodo/Glimt for a record amount of three million euros, but this didn’t affect them too much. They have 10 points after five rounds and they are in third place currently. All this indicates that fight for survival won’t be Aarhus problem this season. It’s much more realistic that they will hunt fourth place, which will most likely bring a spot in the Conference League qualifying.
Rosler has improved defense drastically. Aarhus conceded only three goals in five games so far. There is no doubt that against Midtjylland they will primarily try to save their goal, and only then try to threaten the opponent.
Midtjylland and Aarhus played two completely different matches last season. Midtjylland won 4:0 at home, while in Aarhus it was 3:0 for home team.
Henrik Dalsgaard and Juninho are suspended and won’t play for Midtjylland in sixth round of the Danish Superliga. All players are available for Aarhus.
Midtjylland vs. Aarhus Prediction
It’s time for Midtjylland to finally play a good game from start to finish. Against Lyngby and Horsens, it only looked good in the first 45 minutes. It’s completely unbelievable that they blew a 3-0 lead twice in a row, but it should motivate them to throw out all anger on Aarhus. Looking at quality of both teams, Midtjylland is a much better team than their opponents.
