Midtjylland vs The New Saints Match Preview

Most people would see this encounter as a miss match as TNS the Welsh side are minnows compared to FC Midtjylland, but the home side have been training and preparing hard for this game.

Over the 2 legs it looks almost impossible not to think that FC Midtjylland will not qualify, but TNS will want to give a good account of themselves in this game.

They have come this far and al the coach will ask is that even if they are to lose this game at home they don’t concede too many goals and can have their heads held up high.

Still the bookmakers believe it will be a long night for the Welsh team and they are priced up at a huge 10.00 to win this game. The away side are big odds on favourites at 1.30 to take an advantage back home.

TNS will need to keep it tight and concentrate in the opening exchanges. If they concede early against this type of class then they could go on to lose by a large score.

We don’t think they can qualify from this tie but this is the game in front of their home fans where they need to show passion and commitment and at least have the 2nd leg open next week. This is all about giving themselves a chance even if it is small.
