FC Midtjylland and Sturm Graz will go head-to-head at the MCH Arena in Group F of the UEFA Europa League on Thursday (November 3).
Graz are second in the group and need just a point to secure their place in the knockouts.
“Der er ingen undskyldninger,” fortæller Anders Dreyer om aftenens præstation mod OB.
Midtjylland failed to find their feet on Monday, as they fell to a 2-1 loss against Odense in the Danish Superliga. They have now failed to win their last three games across competitions since a 6-0 victory over third-tier side FA 2000 in the Danish Cup.
They now head to the Europa League, where they are fourth in Group F with five points from five games, three points off Sturm in the knockout stage qualification playoff spot.

Sturm will look to continue in the same vein in the Europa League, as they need just one point to clinch a playoff spot.
