It is on the basis of the european seats are distributed, and with the new Europa League 2 it is essential that Denmark can sneak up on at least 15. square.
- And therefore pisses us violently, to FC Midtjylland in the summer threw a great opportunity away to play in a group stage. It could have given Denmark some points and a buffer for the years to come.
- We may just find that it is too little, there is only one team that plays team play every year, " says Niels-Christian Holmstrøm, vice-president of the Park Sports & Entertainment, to Ekstra Bladet.
