2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 3rd August 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: MCH Arena.
Rafal Siemaszko bagged the match-winner for Arka Gdynia to secure at least a minimum advantage ahead of the rematch at MCH Arena.
Midtjylland, however, still remain massive favourites to go through to the next round and match their last year’s success when they were stopped by Osmanlispor in Europa League playoffs.
Ulvene managed to bounce back after a horrendous 4-0 defeat to Brondby at the start of the new Superligaen campaign.
Jess Thorup’s men picked up back-to-back wins over Silkeborg and Randers to get their domestic league campaign back on track, but they will have to see off Arka Gdynia this Thursday in order to make it through to the playoffs stage of the competition.
The Polish side is off to a decent kick off to the new Ekstraklasa campaign as they have collected five points in opening three rounds of the competition.
The manager Leszek Ojrzynski can be thrilled with his team’s attacking form at the start of the season, primarily with the Brazilian striker Marcus Vinicius who contributed to the win over Midtjylland with a brace seven days ago at Stadion Miejski.
Midtjylland vs Arka Gdynia: Head to head
The first head to head encounter between the two teams offered a goal fest, just as everyone expected following the attacking playing style both teams favour.
Interestingly, the first half of the match played a week ago saw as many as four goals as the mentioned strike from Siemaszko made all the difference making it 3-2 for Arka ahead of the rematch at MCH Arena.
Midtjylland vs Arka Gdynia: Prediction
It just can’t be a low-scoring contest in the second leg as we expect the hosts to go forward in search for an early opener which would ease their way towards the next round.
Paul Onuachu has four goals to his name so far in the competition and we must see him as the top option for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 3/4.
