FC Midtjylland v Southampton Preview, Europa Play-Off 2nd Leg, Thursday 27th August 2015

FC Midtjylland of Denmark played exceptionally well in the first leg away from home, and although they could of faced a far different result in the South of England they now actually come away as contenders to go through to the group stages. The club are currently top of the SuperLiga in Denmark with a four point lead after only six games played and even managed to drop four points in their last two league games having drew against Kobenhavn and Esbjerg. They are just 90 minutes away from Europa League group stage action on Thursday night, even though all of the top bookmakers are setting away side Southampton as clear favourites on the night.

Southampton are seriously struggling for form right now and currently sit in eighteenth position in the Premier League with only two points to their name. With two draws against Newcastle United and Watford, teams they would of beaten easily last season, they then have to deal with a 3 – 0 loss at home to Everton. Southampton had one of the divisions easier starts to the season and by the look of it could fail to capitalize on that seeing as though Norwich City, West Brom and Manchester United have all had far better starts to the campaign. Southampton are the bookmakers favourites for the win tomorrow night with a majority of the bookmaker setting them as evens for the victory.

FC Midtjylland Team News:

The club will be hoping they have a fully fit squad for tomorrows fixture against Southampton and of course be able to field the clubs current scorers of Sisto, Rasmussen and Onuachu who have all scored two each during their early domestic league games. Midfielder Tim Sparv was the scorer in last weeks first leg encounter which was also his first goal of the season so far.

Southampton Team News:

Southampton are without Fraser Forster who by the time he has returned will be close to a year out with his knee injury. Ryan Bertrand is due back early next month with him recovering from a knock to his knee and new signing Jordy Clasie should also return at the same time after missing a few games due to his ankle. Another long term injury is that to Florin Gardos and wont be back until late February. Sadio Mane picked up an injury last weekend and should be back in a couple of days.

FC Midtjylland v Southampton Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Europa League Qualifier action on Thursday night can be seen live on BT Sports Europe High Definition channel and features home side FC Midtjylland against current Premier League strugglers Southampton. After the year Southampton had previously I am seriously shocked to see them start so poorly for this campaign. The club have sold a few important players, yet have also signed some really good talent with the likes of Jordy Clasie who is sadly currently injured.

Southampton have so far only earned two points out of a possible nine with the club having drawn two of their three fixtures. The other ended in an embarrassing 3 – 0 defeat at home to Everton and some improvements will need to be seen when they come to face newcomers Norwich City at the weekend. They then have to face West Brom who look sharper than usual and then welcome Manchester United to the south on the 20th of September. Midtjylland are currently top of their domestic league with a four point gap, even though they themselves have dropped points in their last two games which ended as draws.

My predictions for Thursday nights Europa League Qualifier will see Southampton to qualify one way or the other, even though the odds on them doing so are not the greatest when it comes down to being a punter. The other I am going to go for will be that of a win in which I plan to take a correct score of Southampton to win 2 – 1 on the night. however they will seriously need to step up and start to play to a much higher standard, as the group stage will certainly promise to be far tougher than what they have currently experienced.
