STURM GRAZ vs MIDTJYLLAND – PICK
Everyone is siding with Midtjylland, but we disagree with that assessment! In this instance, the betting value is punting against public perception.
Sturm Graz didn’t get far in this competition last year, but they were involved in a tough group. In fact, they only managed two points from 6 games against Monaco, Real Sociedad and PSV Eindhoven. On this occasion, Feyenoord, Midtjylland and Dynamo Kyiv are opponents.
In the Sturm Graz press interview, it was revealed that 10,000 tickets had already been sold for today’s match. Consequently, by kickoff time, the 15000-capacity stadium is expected to be full!
Head coach Christian Ilzer revealed that his squad is in good physical shape. In some journals, goalkeeper Jorg Siebenhandl was listed as doubtful, but that is not the case.
For the record, Sturm is without suspended Manprit Sakaria. The other two absentees are the injured Jakob Jantscher and Otar Kiteishvili. Niklas Geyrhofer is back in training, and the core of the team is available.
Meanwhile, Midtjylland progressed under the ownership of Matthew Benham. In the near past, this club won the Danish Superliga and played Champions League football.
However, for some reason, Midtjylland has been struggling. As a consequence, former head coach Bo Henriksen was sacked and replaced by Albert Capellas. Since taking charge on 24th August, the Wolves beat Brondby before losing the weekend game in Aalborg.
Midtjylland will travel without Junior Brumado due to a strained knee, and Pablo Ortiz is doubtful with a foot injury. The former Brentford defender Henrik Dalsgaard is likely to slot in at right-back.
At the weekend, the hosts disappointed against Hartberg (0-0), suggesting the players had one eye on this game. A recent league win against Rapid Vienna suggests Sturm is good to go!
