Danish club FC Midtjylland puts SL Benfica at the forefront of securing Champions League qualification after the 4-1 win . The Portuguese giants are one of the biggest clubs on the European continent, having won the European Cup twice in 1960–61 and 1961–62.
Benfica started the season with an impressive victory over FC Tondela in the Portuguese and started brilliantly in the domestic scene against FC Arouca.
FC Midtjylland are one of the Danish league teams that have been consistent in the Champions League even though they’ve not recorded remarkable success lately. The most recent loss in the first leg in Portugal further cast doubts on qualifications for the next round.

FC Midtjylland vs Benfica Champions League 2022/23 Match Preview
German coach Roger Schmidt is optimistic about Benfica’s qualifications for the next round following the 4-1 victory in the first leg. The German utilised a 4 – 3 – 3 formation that was quite effective against the Danish club.
21-year-old Goncalo Ramos was on a hat trick against FC Midtjylland. The Portuguese forward has been outstanding since the start of the new season. He scored three goals in the preseason.
As preventive measures, Roger Schmidt rested Goncalo Ramos against FC Arouca last weekend.
FC Midtjylland, on the other hand, faces a tough test to overturn their heavy loss in Portugal. The Danish side would need three goals at least to keep the tie alive.
