It is obvious from these Nordsjaelland vs Midtjylland odds that the home team are the expected winners, although the guests are clearly not without a chance either. After all, Midtjylland are the league leaders right now.

However, Nordsjaelland are only five points behind them and while it's highly unlikely, they could still win the title as well. At the very least, they need the points to finish in top three and secure European football next season.

With two wins in the last five duels with Midtjylland, along with one loss and a couple of draws, Nordsjaelland have done a bit better in this matchup lately. However, the situation is different when it comes to the overall H2H record between these teams —35-19-21 for Midtjylland.

Nordsjaelland preview: Can they recover from the loss in the last round?

After 10 games without a loss, of which they've won eight, Nordsjaelland's impressive streak came to a crushing halt against Brondby in the last round of the Danish Superliga. This loss most likely puts Nordsjaelland out of contention for the title since they're five points behind Midtjylland with two games left in the season, though mathematically they still have a small chance.

Meanwhile, Nordsjaelland's top scorer Marcus Ingvartsen remains out with an injury, while Erik Marxen is listed as doubtful.

Predicted Lineup: A. Hansen – Frese, K. Hansen, Nagalo, Villadsen – Svensson, Tverskov, Sertdemir – Schjelderup, Nygren, Osman

Midtjylland preview: Can they stay at the top?

After their impressive win over Copenhagen away from home in the last round, which was their third win in a row, Midtjylland have now taken over the top spot in the Superliga standings. With two games left until the end of the season, Midtjylland have the best chance of lifting the trophy.

However, the difference between them and their next opponent Nordsjaelland, who are fourth, is just five points, which means that we're in for an exciting finish. That being said, if Midtjylland can win both of their remaining matches, they will be the champions.

When it comes to team news, Marrony and Alhaji Kamara are all out with injuries ahead of this game, while Henrik Dalsgaard and Gue-sung Cho, the team's top scorer, are suspended.

Player to watch: Andreas Schjelderup

The 19-year-old is having a breakthrough season for Nordsjaelland as he's the team's top scorer with nine goals, along with Marcus Ingvartsen. With Ingvartsen out with an injury, Schjelderup will have to carry a bigger load on the offensive end, so he's our player to watch here.

Schjelderup to score in the second half?

Eight of the nine goals that Schjelderup has scored in the league so far have come in the second halves of respective games. Will we see the same in the upcoming duel with Midtjylland?
