Champions League Third Qualifying Round Preview
It would seem as though Midtjylland’s journey in the Champions League is going to come to an end on Tuesday evening, as they face an uphill battle to overcome the defeat that they suffered in the first leg. PSV were far too strong in the first leg of the tie, as the Dutch side claimed a commanding 3-0 victory in Eindhoven. It was a slow start for the Danish side, which was ultimately costly to their chances of reaching the next round. Midtjylland conceded three goals in the opening half at the Phillips Stadion, with PSV going ahead after just 20 minutes through the very impressive Noni Madueke.
PSV didn’t let up on the pressure that they were putting Midtjylland under, as they scored two further goals in the next 15 minutes. Mario Gotze continued his excellent start to his career in the Netherlands by scoring the second goal, before Cody Gakpo ensured that PSV were able to take a commanding lead back to Denmark by scoring the third with 15 minutes of the first half remaining.
Midtjylland were able to bounce back to form in their most recent domestic outing, as they won 4-1 against Vejle BK. Gustav Isaksen opened the scoring, before second half strikes from Erik Sviatchenko, Anders Dreyer and Awer Mabil made sure of the win. PSV also started their domestic season with an emphatic success, as they beat Ajax 4-0 in the Johan Cruijff Shield. Madueke scored twice in that win over their rivals.
