On Thursday, Nordsjaelland took a major step towards qualifying for the Conference League groups, following an impressive 5-0 home win over Partizan. Coach Johannes Thorup is doing a tremendous job, producing future top-quality players with an offensive-minded philosophy. They opened the new season with two superb performances counting 6 wins and 1 draw (against FCSB with a player less from the 59th minute), while in the last league round they suffered the first defeat away to Silkeborg, where many key players were rested. The 3-3 home draw with Legia left open accounts for the Conference League playoffs. In the championship, Thomas Thomasberg’s team was defeated by Brondby 0-1. and lined up with the main players. They are 6 points away from the top, and due to the important game on Thursday in Warsaw, the main players will be rested, while Gue-Sung (5/3), Paulinho (5/0), Dalsgaard (4/0), and Ingason (3/0) have injury problems.
After a superb performance against Nordsjaelland is sky-flipping. The score allows them to use a starting lineup today, as only a miracle will keep them away from the Conference group league stage. On the contrary, Midtjylland with several absences and an important match on Thursday will have a difficult evening at Right to Dream Park.
