Midtjylland have a nearly impossible task to overcome the 1-4 deficit from the first leg against a very tough team. The Wolves played in the group stages of the Champions League and the Europa League of the previous last two seasons. Even if they are eliminated now, Midtjylland will have the chance to play in the UEL.
In Europe, Midtjylland won one drew four, and lost two of their last seven home games including last season. This shows that the Wolves are not very successful in their European home games scoring six goals in the seven games and conceding ten.
Benfica are ten-time finalists in European competitions having won the European Cup in 1961 and 1962. The Eagles are Portugal’s most decorated team with 80 domestic trophies. Benfica finished third in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season and have to go through the UCL qualification round.
In the first leg, Benfica completely dominated the match with 22 goal attempts of which 11 were on target. The Eagles had an excellent preseason winning all of their five friendlies. Coach Roger Schmidt will be keen his team doesn’t face any surprises and thus have to be serious in their approach.
