Aussies Abroad: Mabil's Midtjylland go 12 points clear while Amini celebrates baby girl
Socceroos forward Awer Mabil helped Midtjylland extend their lead atop the Danish Superliga ladder with a 2-0 win over Randers overnight.
With the match played without spectators at Cepheus Park due to coronavirus measures, Mabil started his 11th consecutive match for the Wolves and was involved in the creation of an early chance for his side.
The league leaders hit the lead via Alexander Scholz on 26 minutes and doubled their tally before half time thanks to Evander's penalty.
It is a fourth consecutive win and fourth straight clean sheet for Midtjylland, who are 12 points above reigning champions Copenhagen on the table.
Our Socceroos in Denmark are sure loving life right now - on and off the pitch!

Congratulations to Mustafa and Natalie!
