Awer Mabil’s chances of winning the Danish Superliga with FC Midtjylland are still alive after a 2-1 comeback victory over Nordsjælland on Tuesday morning (AEST).
Nigerian forward Paul Onuachu scored a double in 11 second-half minutes to cancel out an early opener from Jonathan Amon, with Caltex Socceroo Mabil making a late cameo from the bench.
Midtjylland – who last Monday lost consecutive Superliga matches for the first time in two years – remain on the tail of leaders FC Copenhagen: but only just.
