Slavia Prague vs Midtjylland Soccer Betting Prediction – Champions League Playoffs
It’s been just over three weeks since Bayern won the Champions League. In these days, the playoffs of the premier class are on again. Unlike the previous qualifying rounds, however, the playoffs are played in a home and away leg. The decision whether Slavia Prague or Midtjylland will be part of our Champions League tips will therefore only be made on September 30th.
The well-known bookmakers see the Czech champions in a better position in the first leg between Slavia Prague and FC Midtjylland. Prague has at least more experience at this level, after all, the Czechs were already involved in the premier class last year.
Midtjylland has now won the Danish championship for the third time. In the group stage of the Champions League, the Danes would be a newcomer. We think it is conceivable that Brian Priske’s team will prevail over both games. To predict the progress of the Danes between Slavia Prague and Midtjylland does not seem absurd.
Both teams started the new season very well. That’s why we expect a match at eye level in the Czech Republic on Tuesday. The pressure is certainly on the Czech champions’ side, who have to present themselves in their stadium. But that does not mean that the first impulse in the match Slavia Prague against Midtjylland is a tip on the home win.
Betting Prediction: Victory Midtjylland
Slavia Prague – Statistics & current form
Slavia Prague has not left the competition in the Czech Republic behind, but Jindrich Trpisovsky’s team is now the market leader in its own country. Three championships in four years speak for themselves. In addition to the national successes, international attention is now to be drawn again in the long term.
Great start to the season for Slavia
As Czech champions, Slavia first has to enter the Champions League playoffs, so they will make their international debut this season on Tuesday. So far in the championship, it has been successful. With ten points from four games, Slavia is back in first place in the Czech league table.
Last Friday, FK Teplice visited the capital and was dealt with 5-1. However, the game couldn’t have gone any better. With goals from Peter Olayinka and Nicolae Stanciu, it was 2-0 after a quarter of an hour. As a result of the guests being sent off early, Petar Musa, Tomas Holes, and Laco Takacs increased the result even further.
On Tuesday it will certainly not be that easy, which is why a clear forecast of a home win between Slavia Prague and Midtjylland would be a bit too general. But the shape is right and everything is okay in terms of personnel. Jindrich Trpisovsky will most likely be able to send his desired formation into the race on Tuesday.
The probable lineup of Slavia Prague:
Kolar – Boril, Zima, Kudela, Coufal – Provod – Olayinka, Stanciu, Sevcik, Masopust – Musa

Midtjylland – Statistics & current form
The Danish champions did not get off to a perfect start. In preparation, it looked as if FC Midtjylland could build on last season. Maybe the defeat at the beginning of the season in Sönderjyske was also a shot in front of the bow at the right time.
Midtjylland’s false start has been corrected
Then there were two wins in a row, which were achieved convincingly. Above all, the success against Young Boys Bern was extremely high, because the great goal of the Danes is to finally move into the Champions League. We take the 3-0 win against the Swiss champions as an opportunity to predict the Danish title holder between Slavia Prague and Midtjylland, at least about qualifying for the group stage.

Last weekend, Midtjylland scored the first points in the championship. However, the home win against Lyngby was hard-won. Pione Sisto brought his team forward after a quarter of an hour, but it stayed that way until the end of the game. In the table of the Superligaen, the champions are still a bit behind.
However, we can assume that the focus will be fully on Tuesday’s game. Christian Dirks Riis and Oliver Olsen will be missing on the defensive. Otherwise, the Danish champions have all the players on board.
The probable lineup of Midtjylland:
Hansen – Paulinho, James, Scholz, Cools – Evander, Cajuste – Sisto, Kraev, Dreyer – Junior Brumado

Slavia Prague vs Midtjylland – Direct comparison
To date, Slavia Prague and FC Midtjylland have not faced each other on the pitch. We cannot therefore make a direct comparison in the conventional sense. We are therefore looking a little outside the box of this pairing. After all, Slavia Prague has already played seven games against Danish teams.
Slavia with a good record against Danish clubs
Of these seven duels with Danes, Slavia only lost once. There are three wins and three draws. Danish teams seem to suit the Czech champions. Midtjylland, on the other hand, has never measured strength with a Czech team.

The clear 3-0 win against the Young Boys from Bern, which for us is the fact that we perhaps odds the highest, was particularly impressive. That’s why we’re holding back on Tuesday between Slavia Prague and Midtjylland with a tip on the home win.

Slavia started the season successfully with three wins and one draw.
After a false start, Midtjylland has recently achieved two wins.
Slavia has only lost one of seven games against Danish teams.
In the first leg, both teams usually do not take a very big risk. The goal is a good starting position for the second leg.

That is why we are playing the odds on the double chance X2 between Slavia Prague and Midtjylland.
