The Danish champion Midtjylland hosts Wales’ The New Saints in a second leg from the Europa League 3rd round qualifiers. Let’s examine this clash in our soccer betting tips for today.
Midtjylland are very close to reaching the playoffs of the Europa League. The Danish team won the first match in Wales with 2-0, which gives them a comfortable advantage before the second leg. The big hero for Midtjylland in the first leg was the Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu, who scored both goals for the Scandinavians. Midtjylland showed bigger class and had some more chances to score a third goal as well, but they didn’t.
Even before the first leg it was clear that Midtjylland are a huge favourite against The New Saints. The teams from Wales are usually not performing very successfully in Europe, because of their low quality. For The New Saints it’s a success to reach the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League. But as it seems now, they would hardly do something more than this.
In the Danish Superliga Midtjylland kicked off their season with 10 points from the first 5 rounds. The champions won three of their games so far, but also made one draw and suffered one defeat during the visit to AaB. They are currently just 2 points behind the leader Kobenhavn, so there’s no room for panic just yet.
The New Saints started the new season in Wales’ Premier League with a 5-1 win over Barry Town United in the first round. They played very good in this game, but let’s be real – the difference between Barry Town and Midtjylland is pretty huge.
