Head to Head


Midtjylland hold a 10-2 head to head record over Odense from the last 14 meetings. There have also been two draws.

The sides met four times last season with Midtjylland winning three times and the other ending in a draw.

Midtjylland Form


Midtjylland failed to go back to back in the Danish Superliga as the 2019/20 champions could only finish second last season.

Since ending the Danish Superliga season with a 4-0 win over Aarhus, Midtjylland have played three friendlies in preparation for the new campaign.

They were 2-1 winners against Malmo before losing 3-2 to Lech Poznan. A 2-1 victory over Sigma Olomouc finalised their pre-season build-up.

Coach Brian Priske has left to join Royal Antwerp with ex-Horsens coach Bo Henriksen replacing him in charge.

Midtjylland Team News


Midtylland have been busy in the transfer market. Defenders Juninho and Henrik Dalsgaard have been signed along with midfielder Charles and winger Sebastian Buch.

Goalkeepers Jesper Hansen and Mikkel Andersen, defenders Alexander Scholz, Manjrekar James and Kristian Dirks Riis and forward Casper Tengstedt have all left.

Odense Form


Odense ended last season on a decent run of form, but it was only good enough for a disappointing ninth placed finish in the Superliga.

They signed off the campaign with an unbeaten four-game run including victories over Aalborg, Lyngby and Horsens and a draw with Vejle.

Swede Andreas Alm, who has had previous experience in Denmark with Vejle, has replaced Michael Hemmingsen in charge of OB.

Alm has overseen four friendlies since taking over. Odense have beaten Naesby 3-1 and Fremad Amager 7-0 and drawn 1-1 with Brondby and 2-2 with St Pauli.

Odense Team News


Odense have allowed right-back Oliver Lund, midfielder Janus Drachmann and forward Rasmus Nissen leave for pastures new.

OB have brought in forward Rasmus Nissen and promoted defenders Robin Öström, Jonathan Khemdee and Mathias Brems from the U19 squad.
