Along with Copenhagen, Midtjylland has been the best Danish club for a few years now. Two seasons ago, they passed the qualifying and made it to the Champions League group stage. Last year, they participated in the Europa League. In the group with Red Star, Braga, and Ludogorets, finished in third place. After that, they were eliminated by PAOK in the Conference League knockout stage.
If they eliminate AEK Larnaca, Midtjylland will secure an appearance in the Europa League group stage once again. That is a primary goal for this club, and this tie is extremely important for them. During the summer, Midtjylland changed several players. After a few months of loan, Anders Dreyer was signed from Rubin for 5 million euros, and they expected a lot from him. Talented Oscar Fraulo was sold to Borrusia Monchengladbach, while Marrony went to Fluminense.
Last weekend, the Danish Superliga started. In the first round, Midtjylland played 1:1 against Randers at home. Defensively, they had a lot of mistakes during the match, and they will have to correct that if they want to beat AEK Larnaca.
Last season, AEK Larnaca finished second in the Cyprus League for the fifth time in their history. Thanks to the good results of Cypriot clubs in Europe, they will play in the Champions League qualifying. In the worst case scenario, they will have to overcome one of three opponents to secure the Conference League group stage.
Passing into the third round of the Champions League qualifying would automatically guarantee a spot in the Europa League group stage. That’s why they will approach this clash very seriously. One of the difficulties for AEK Larnaca is that their domestic championship starts in mid-August. Their opponent will welcome this match much more prepared.
Like all Cypriot clubs, AEK Larnaca plays incomparably better at home than on the road. This is especially the case in the qualifying over summer when the heat is sweltering in Cyprus. They signed a lot of new players in order to be ready for the Champions League games. Some of new names are Kenan Piric, Rafa Lopes, Bruno Gama, Ismael Casas and Oier Sanjurjo.
Midtjylland and AEK Larnaca have never played against each other in the past.
Junior Brumado is injured, and he won’t be able to play for Midtjylland in this game. All players are available for AEK Larnaca.
