Derry v Midtjylland: Great Danes to be class apart again

Kick Off: 1945, 06/07/2017

Stadium: The Showgrounds

Derry may be looking at a damage limitation exercise when they host Midtjylland in the Europa League, having lost the first leg 6-1 in Denmark.

City predictably struggled against opponents who had beaten Manchester United at home in this competition a couple of years ago.

The Danes simply looked a class apart and 17/20 they again win by more than one goal is hard to resist in our Derry vs Midtjylland betting tips.

A Look At Derry City’s Betting Odds

Derry were on the back foot from the outset in Denmark and never recovered from going 2-0 down inside the first quarter of an hour.

All credit to Ronan Curtis for grabbing a consolation goal and he was unlucky not to be awarded a penalty when appearing to be brought down inside the area.

However, it is hard to see what Kenny Shiels can do to make much of a difference, even with home advantage in Sligo.

City will still try to get forward, though, so 9/5 for an away win and both teams to score seems a solid option from the Derry vs Midtjylland odds.

A Look At Midtjylland’s Betting Odds

Midtjylland also knocked Southampton out two seasons ago and appear to have rebuilt well after losing a number of key players following that successful campaign.

Head coach Jess Thorup has vowed not to rest on his laurels and merely seek to coast through the second leg after last week’s demolition job in Herning.

He told the Derry Journal: “You won’t see a new team on the pitch, it’ll be a lot of the same guys who played the last game. It will be important for our preparation for the next round.”

The aerial threat of 6ft 7in striker Paul Onuachu was there for all to see and 17/10 for an away win and over 3.5 goals is worth including in our Derry vs Midtjylland predictions.
