Midtjylland vs Young Boys Free Betting Tips

Slavia Prague is waiting in the playoffs

Competition: Champions League Qualifi 2020
Date: 16.09.2020
Betting Tips: Midtjylland
Odds: 2.06
Stake: 5/10 units

Six places in the field of participants in the 2020/21 Champions League season are still vacant. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the teams that will be able to fight for the coveted tickets in the playoffs in the next two weeks will be determined. Unlike in previous years, all matches will be played without a second leg up to and including the third qualifying round. Only in the playoffs do you need concentrated performance over 180 instead of 90 minutes.

One of the most interesting duels on Wednesday will certainly take place in Denmark. There it comes to the duel Midtjylland against the Young Boys. The odds of the best bookmakers illustrate the high tension, because a clear favorite is not apparent when looking at the betting base odds comparison, below. Rather, a balanced duel at eye level is expected, in which the form of the day should ultimately be decisive.

Although spectators are still not allowed in UEFA competitions, the Northern Europeans are relying on the home advantage in the MCH Arena, as they are at least allowed to play on the familiar track, a good natural grass pitch, and are not forced to approach artificial turf in the Stade de Suisse play.

In addition, before the duel Midtjylland against Young Boys, the prediction should also be taken into account that the Danes mastered a complicated challenge against Ludogorez Razgrad in the second round, while the Swiss title holder had a very simple task against Klaksvik. By the way, it is already clear that the winner of this encounter will meet Slavia Prague in the playoffs.

Betting Tips: Victory Midtjylland
Odds: 2.88

Midtjylland – Statistics & current form

FC Midtjylland has never reached the group stage of the UEFA Champions League in the history of the club. In 2015/2016 and 2018/2019, the Danes were allowed to try their hand at qualifying, but failed there in round three and two respectively. The spell should finally be broken this season.

The chances for this are not bad, especially since both the Young Boys in the qualifying semifinals and the potential opponent in the playoffs, Slavia Prague, seem anything but invincible. The fact that the Danes are definitely hoping to participate in the premier class for the first time became clear after the 1-0 victory at the internationally experienced club Ludogorez Razgrad in round two, which many would not necessarily have expected in advance.

Bad start to the season for the Danish champions

Before the game Midtjylland against Young Boys, the starting position is similar. The odds are slightly in favor of the opponent, but are very close to each other, which is why a 50/50 match is to be expected. Among other things, the home advantage speaks in favor of the three-time Danish champion, which in these times is not due to the mood, but simply to the familiar atmosphere. The intact team chemistry and the majority of the squad, which has been well established for many years, make a home win seem realistic.

The only downer in the analysis of the Red-Blacks is the damned season opener last weekend, when the reigning title holder surprisingly lost 2-0 at Sonderyjsk. It is quite possible that coach Jess Thorup will rebuild his team and build on new faces. For example, newcomer Pione Sisto (came from Celta Vigo) could get the chance right from the start and lift the offensive to a different level qualitatively.

  • Probable formation of Midtjylland:
    Hansen – Paulinho, Scholz, Sviatchenko, Cools – Madsen, Cajuste – Sisto, Kraev, Dreyer – Kaba

Young Boys – Statistics & Current Form

Compared to FC Midtjylland, the Young Boys from Bern are almost old hands in the most important European club competition. In 2018/2019 the current Swiss figurehead qualified for the premier class for the first time, but last year the Oberlanders failed in the playoffs at Red Star Belgrade.

In general, it should make you think that the yellow-blacks have so far got stuck in seven out of eight cases. Mostly it was the away games in which the BSC revealed bigger problems. Incidentally, this trend was also evident in the past Super League season. The double winner received all six defeats of the season in the distance and was seven points behind St. Gallen in the final statement of the away table.

Will the weakness away from home also become a problem internationally?

A certain weakness in opposing stadiums is therefore indispensable and definitely a good argument to dare to predict the success of the home side on Wednesday evening between Midtjylland and the Young Boys.

Furthermore, at this point in the season we are missing a valid reference about the current condition of the Swiss, who did not splurge themselves with fame in the second qualifying round against the underdog Klaksvik at 3-1 (0-0 at break). In addition, the Seoane, who lost only one top performer from the previous season in Jordan Lotomba, only played one friendly match, which was won 5-2 against Lausanne.

  • Probable formation of Young Boys:
    Von Ballmoos – Garcia, Camara, Lustenberger, Lefort – Martins Pereira, Aebischer – Ngame, Fassnacht, Sulejmani – Nsame

Midtjylland vs Young Boys Direct comparison / H2H comparison

The only two direct duels go back to 2012. At that time, the teams faced each other in the Europa League qualification. The BSC Young Boys prevailed 3-0 in the first leg in Denmark, but almost lost their advantage in the second leg. Ultimately, however, the 2-0 defeat in front of their own fans was enough to move into the group stage of the competition.

Midtjylland vs Young Boys Free Betting Tips

Two champions want to enter the Champions League! This is the credo for the meeting of the Danish and Swiss title holders on Wednesday evening. A maximum of three matches separate both clubs from financially and athletically attractive participation in the premier class. If we believe the odds between Midtjylland and the Young Boys, then it will be the guests who will fight against Slavia Prague for one of the last vacant tickets in the next two weeks.

To speak of a clear favorite role in favor of the yellow-blacks would still be completely presumptuous. Instead, we’re looking forward to a balanced duel, in which a decision will definitely have to be made on Wednesday, be it after extra time or a penalty shoot-out. We believe that this do-or-die character is more likely to play the home side in the cards because they have the home advantage on their side, despite the lack of fans.

Key facts – Midtjylland vs Young Boys tips

❗️ Midtjylland has never been in the group stage of the CL
❗️ Young Boys did not do well away from home in 2019/20
❗️ In 2012/2013, the Swiss prevailed 3-2 after the two legs

In addition, it should be stated that the Swiss revealed real weaknesses away from home in the past season. If you compare the appearances of both teams in the second qualifying round, we think a bet on the supposed underdog is very interesting.

The bottom line is that we decide between Midtjylland and the Young Boys for the tip that the Danish title holder will reach the playoffs.
