Q – Prague Post: “What do you think about your opponent?”.

Coach Yannis Kotakis: “I think it is a powerful team. We know that they have 2 danish talent in Mads & Loke. They have some great players on the midfield and in the attack. If i should mention a week spot i would be their defense and in the goal, but i rather talk about us instead”.

Let me start this post RL. Panathinaikos – Odense 3-4, what joy, and an incredible good effort. Take a look at the goals from the games in Athens.


MS Odense will try to replicate the stunning effort in today’s cup match against FC Netroma. We have an incredibly difficult task ahead of us today. The match is played on MS Park at 16:30

Ideas and comments on MSO – NFC coming up later


Odense back on track.

The cup match against SuperMule was a close encounter with few opportunities for both teams and therefore the winner was determined by penalty shootout. Both teams went into battle with thoughts on defensive play and two penalties was needed to make 1-1 after 90 minutes. Kim Kristensen made ​​it 1-0 after 49 minutes and in a game without big chances MS Odense were right on track for the 4th round of the cup. The referee wanted some different and after 77 minutes he gave visitors a golden opportunity to get back into matches with a chance from the spot. Cliff Sejrsen did what he had to do and the match went to extra time.

The only chance of scoring in open play went to MS Odense on the 94th minutes when Flemming Overskov had the opportunity to score a golden goal, but Elias Rytter had no trouble getting control of the shoot. In the penalty shootout MS Odense showed no mercy, only Peter Ivarsson failed to score and when the experienced MSO keeper Mikael Jonasson took all shoots from the SuperMule, MSO players could finally celebrate a victory against a reasonable opponent. The club is for the first time in fourth round and although the match is difficult we will hunt opportunity for yet another advancement, but Netroma FC is a very strong opponent, and only an underestimation or an unreasonable GE can send victory to Odense.

RL: Odense still got a chance to go into the Champions League after a fine 1-1 against Panathinaikos 😉 http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/season=2012/matches/round=2000261/match=2007533/postmatch/report/index.html
