Midtjylland vs. Derry City match will be played on Thursday, June 29, at the MCH Arena, Herning. This is the first leg of Europa League first qualifying round. Midtjylland was 5th in the 2016/17 season, and they beat Randers by 3:0 in the Europa League playoffs final, while Derry City is currently 5th in the Danish league with 28 points after 19 matches.


  • Midtjylland recorded five victories and only one defeat in their last six games in all competitions. It is interesting that they recorded only one draw in their last 16 games in all competitions.
  • Derry City won only three games in their last 16 matches in all competitions, although they recorded 12 consecutive victories before this unbelievable drop of form. They lost two games in a row in the league. We saw over 2.5 goals in both of those matches.


So far, these teams haven't played against each other.


Midtjylland finished the previous season successfully, although they were outsiders in the fight for the place in Europa League. In 2015/16 they even reached the first knockout phase of the competition, where they were kicked out by the hands of Manchester United, while in the previous season they started qualifying cycle from the first qualifying phase as well, eliminated Suduva, Vaduz, and Videotron, before Osmanlispor finished their run in the last qualifying stage.

Derry City is currently trailing by five points behind Bray Wanderers, which is the place that leads to Europa League qualifiers at the end of the season. Derry will have to find their form as soon as possible, or they will fail to accomplish their goals for this season.
