Southampton vs Midtjylland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first leg of the final round in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League, Southampton take on Midtjylland.
Southampton eliminated Vitesse in the previous round with nil (0-3, 2-0) and it says a lot that they are more than interesting to play in the UEFA Europa League. The Premier league just started, but they have managed to take only one point in two games. The main goal for Southampton is to play in this competition and without any doubt they are big favorites to go through in the group phase. Ronald Koeman’s football philosophy is play attractive with many goal chances.
Midtjylland was better side against APOEL in the previous round and they will do their best to make a good result tonight and keep the chances to reach the group phase of Europa league. Their coach Jess Thorup said that their main goal is to hit the net at least once. Midtjylland started this season Denmark’s Superliga very good and after 5 rounds they are standing at the top of the table.
