MS Odense showed an intimidating strength in against last season’s number 2. 35021 spectators defied the rain and were witnesses to a game where the home team had no trouble at all. The prelude to the match was affected by uncertainty about the strength of the two teams but Odense quickly put a stop to these thoughts, and showed great strength in defense and midfield. Swedish Ivarsson has on several occasions shown his ability to score while the Greek midfielder showed great quality as both scored 2 goals in the match and Mpatistas was exited about his performance.

“I am enormously pleased to contribute to the success we are experiencing right now. Goals have been lacking on my part and it is a relief to contribute to the size of the victory. I think we perform at a high level against a good opponent and as long as we can play like this we will be difficult to beat and I hope I can keep my place on the team and score more goals during the season”.

– MS Odense player Dimosthenis Mpatistas

The promising start to the season gives MS Odense the impressive score of 15-1 in 2 games and Odense taking the lead in VI.979. Next up is the cup tie versus Eskebjerg FC and it shouldn’t give to many sleepless nights.

MS Odense kicked off the new season with a solid performance at “Stade de Sønderjylland” and is ready for the 2. round in The Danish Cup. Full back Morten Skytte started the show after 5 minutes of play and “The Toon” sealed the victory scoring the last goal with 6 minutes left of the game. The 7000 spectators got a one-way game with Sønderjylland HFK being over matched in every part of the game and on all positions on the field.

“We are very pleased with the result and got the start of the season we where hoping for. We got a couple of yellow cards and a shocker with Baggio being rough handled in the start of the match so it was not all easy as it might seems. I know we shouldn’t complain about a game like this and on a personal matter I did well, but you never know what happens in these games and in some parts we got lucky today”.

The game started very well but Kotakis got a bit worried when “The Next Big Thing” Paolo Baggio was laying on the ground in pain, after 12. minutes, but the talented Scotsman got back on his feet and finished the game and again he managed to get a clean sheet. Winger Flemming Overskov got a fine start to the season too scoring 2 times today and Odense icon Sam Mahmoud Abu-Aziz once again showed his skills, scoring the second goal of the game and being MOM

“We wasn’t tested today and that’s the truth, but it is always nice to get a big win to kick off the season. Come Sunday and it will be a much different opponent – That’s what we should be thinking about. Today we just did as expected. Nothing more, nothing less”.
