      Tip Reasoning

      Southampton showed their defensive frailties on Saturday when they hosted Everton at St Mary’s. The loss of Alderweireld, Clyne, and Schneiderlin seems to have hit them harder than expected.

      They lost 3-0 to Everton, and conceding 3 goals in 1 match at a ground where they only conceded 13 times last season was a huge shock.

      Before this, they drew 2-2 away to Newcastle in their opening game of the season, making it a much slower start than they enjoyed last season.

      However, the Europa League still beckons. They beat Vitesse comprehensively to make it to the Europa League playoffs, with the 5-0 aggregate scoreline showcasing their talents.

      Midtjylland started their domestic campaign some time ago, with their opening match being played back in the middle of July.

      Their goalless draw with Kobenhavn on Friday was their 5th match of the season, and after these 5 matches they find themselves at the top of the Danish Superliga with 13 points.

      This is 4 points ahead of their nearest competitors, and they will be confident that they have the ability to retain their league title.

      They were knocked out of the Champions League in the 2nd round of qualifying by APOEL, with the Cypriot team beating them on away goals after a tight clash.

      However, they have won 3 of their last 4 matches in all competitions, so come to St Mary’s in high spirits against a team with a new found defensive problem.

      This will be the first time these 2 sides have met, and the bookies are heavily favouring the Premier League side. I do think they have the best chance of winning, but the odds are just too short to find any value.

      Considering their lacklustre performance against Everton, I think that odds of 12/5 for a Midtjylland Win or Draw double chance are very good value.
