Wolves off to good start in Europa League

Own goal sealed the deal against Legia in Herning

FC Midtjylland are off to a good start in the Europa League thanks to a 1-0 win at home against Polish outfit Legia Warsaw last night in Group D.

In a tight match, the Wolves went ahead courtesy of an own goal from a deflected cross 15 minutes into the second half.

“We were up against a really good Polish team, and they came close to punishing us with their counterattacks – particularly in the first half,” Kristian Bach Bak, FCM’s captain, told Bold.dk.

“In the second half we dominated and got a deserved win after a half during which we played very smartly. Now we are on the board.”

Bruised Brugges up next
Another team on the board in Group D is Napoli, which hammered Belgian club Club Brugge 5-0 in Naples in the other match.

Up next for FCM on October 1 are the beleaguered Belgians, who have developed a nasty habit of beating Danish teams in recent years at home.

Elsewhere in the Europa League, Viktor Fischer and Lasse Schøne both scored as Ajax Amsterdam drew 2-2 with Celtic at home, while Tobias Mikkelsen scored in Rosenborg’s 2-2 draw with Saint Etienne.
