For the first time in club history, FC Midtjylland has reached the Champions League group stage.
And what a way to do that.
Despite being behind after only 3 minutes, the Wolves fought in the second half to win 4-1 over Slavia Prague in Herning.
With the score 1-1, the last ten minutes were about as exciting as possible.
A VAR check on a handball in the box led to a penalty kick for FCM, but Sory Kaba – goal scorer of the equalizer earlier in the half – missed.

But wait! VAR was not finished at night and the referee ordered a resumption of the penalty because the goalkeeper left his line too early.
Alexander Scholz withdrew the second attempt and FCM added two more late on counters to win 4-1 at night and overall.
It is the first time since FC Copenhagen in 2016 that a Danish team reaches the Champions League group stage.
Later today, FCK can join FCM in Europe if they beat the Croatian side NK Rijeka tonight in the Europa League play-offs in Copenhagen.
