Midtjylland vs Apollon: Preview and Predictions
Ioannis Pittas bagged the 93th minute winner for Apollon to give them side at least some advantage ahead of the rematch in Herning.
However, keeping it will be quite a challenge for the Cypriot side since Midtjylland have eight wins on the trot at MCH Arena in all competitions.
The hosts entered the new season with sky-high ambitions and a strengthened lineup (compared to the one they had last year when they also reached the playoffs stage in Europa League).
Jess Thorup’s men are especially dangerous in the final third as they have bagged at least two goals in each of their last six matches on the home ground.
The visitors got a major confidence boost two weeks ago when they saw off APOEL in the Cypriot Super Cup final.
Sofronis Avgousti’s side has previously eliminated Zaria and Aberdeen, but they showed certain vulnerabilities in the defensive line in a 1-2 defeat to Nea Salamis (friendly).
Midtjylland vs Apollon: Head to head
The first ever head to head encounter between the two teams offered an open game with the Cypriots coming on top at the end (3-2).
Midtjylland’s most recent acquisition Alexander Sorloth proved his qualify by netting a brace for the Danes at AEK Arena.
Midtjylland vs Apollon: Prediction
This one simply has to offer a goal fest given that the hosts play super attacking football, especially on the home patch.
The Norwegian striker Sorloth has been red-hot lately as he backed up the fine display from Larnaca with a brace in the weekend’s 0-2 win over OB and he will be our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 7/4.
Midtjylland vs Apollon: Bet Tips
