Midtjylland finished the 2021/22 season with a penalty shoot-out victory over Odense in the Danish cup final. In the off-season, the future hosts played three friendlies against Odense, Aalborg and Gent. They won against their compatriots, losing 1:2 to the Belgians. Last weekend, Midtjylland played their first official Danish league game of the season against Randers. The game ended 1:1, with the home side opening the scoring first but failing to maintain their advantage with a 60th minute penalty. Last season, Celtic knocked them out in the second round of qualifying and knocked out by PSV in the third.
In contrast to the Danish championship, the Cyprus championship has not yet started. AEK has played only three friendlies against Rapid, Kisvarda and APOEL: a win and two draws. For AEK, the start of the tournament is the first ever at this level. The Cypriots last played in European competitions in the 2019/20 season in the Europa League and didn't make it past any rounds, slowed down by Belgium's Gent. A lack of proper experience could be a big problem for future visitors.
Expert Betting Tips
Midtjylland is the logical favorite for the game. The Danes have the home-field factor on their side, and it's also worth remembering that the Scandinavians have plenty of experience at the international level, while AEK don't. Midtjylland will try not just to win the upcoming game, but also create a difference in the return leg. That said, we doubt the upcoming game will be very goal scoring.
