Midtjylland vs Arka Gdynia by Filipson
The 1st game of the tie was amazing, and I expect nothing less from this one, as the result is very, very active and nothing has been decided yet. I see that everyone heavily underestimates Arka, who have had a very good season so far, which started with the win over Legia in the Polish Super cup. That surely says something about their quality, and they have been undefeated since then, with 2 draws and a win in the league, and that win over Midtjylland in the 1st game of this tie. The visitors performed very well in their 1st European game ever, and I am sure their motivation is sky-high after the win in the last minutes. They showed a considerable amount of attacking quality, for sure more than enough to endanger Midtjylland, so I think they won't sit back and wait for the hosts. Arka know they have to score given the result and they have nothing from defending. If they scored 3 goals in Poland, they can surely do that at least once in Denmark, as the hosts aren't the best defensive side.
Midtjylland conceded a very late goal in the 1st match, which showed they completely lack focus. The hosts are generally weak in defence, as they allow way too many chances, and it is actually a miracle they don't concede more often. Midtjylland have been good at home over the last months, and in fact, they have all 4 wins at home this season, 2 in the league and 2 in the EL qualifications. But they conceded in 3 of those games, and they did it even against Derry City, who are honestly a very weak team. However, the hosts have shown quite an attacking power in front of their fans, and I have no doubt they can score some goals tonight. They have scored at least 2 goals in 9 from the last 11 games at home, which is very good. On top of that, only 1 from their 8 games this season has ended with less than 3 goals, which surely points to the fact that their matches simply have to be open.
Whenever we see the 1st goal here, it will open the match and from that moment we can expect anything. I see this one being nothing less exciting than the previous one, so we should be prepared for goals. Good luck!
