Viborg take on the visitors Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga’s final match for participation in Conference League. The match will be played on Friday, June 9th at Energi Viborg Arena (Viborg).
Viborg had a very impressive season. For a while, they even led the championship but ultimately finished the regular season in third place. In the Championship playoff, Viborg ended up in fourth position, narrowly missing out on third place to Aarhus based on additional criteria despite having the same number of points. Now they will have to fight Midtjylland for the opportunity to play in the Conference League. The hosts approach this match in less than ideal form and mood. In their last five league matches, Viborg managed only one victory, with two defeats and two draws. It was due to this poor finish that they missed out on direct qualification for European competition. Winning this match will be a tough task for the hosts.

Midtjylland had a disappointing regular season, failing to secure a spot in the top six. However, according to the peculiar rules of the Danish Superliga, they still have a chance to qualify for the Conference League. The team had a strong finish in the final part of the championship, finishing seventh with a five-point lead over their closest competitor and winning their relegation group. They recorded three victories in their last four matches: against Horsens (3-1), Aalborg (2-0), and Odense (4-2). Physically and mentally, the guests appear stronger for the upcoming encounter. Additionally, Midtjylland has more experience in the fight for European competitions compared to their opponent. I believe the team is more than capable of salvaging their disappointing season and securing at least a place in the Conference League.
While Midtjylland was earning points and comfortably dispatching opponents of lower caliber, Viborg's players let their direct ticket to the Europa League qualification slip through their fingers match after match. The demoralized hosts will face significant challenges in their quest for European football. While I don't rule out their overall victory, I certainly don't expect them to win in regular time. The head-to-head statistics strongly favor Midtjylland, with two wins, two draws, and only one defeat in their last five encounters. Bookmakers give a slight preference to Viborg due to the match being played on their home turf. However, it's worth noting that Midtjylland has suffered only one away defeat throughout the entire championship. Meanwhile, Viborg has won less than half of their home matches. In their two most recent matches against this opponent, Viborg was soundly defeated with the same score of 0-4, both in the league and the cup, on their own turf. My prediction is X2, the guests will not lose in regular time.
Prediction for the match: Midtjylland not to lose (X2).
