AMSTERDAM – Conor O'Brien and FC Nordsjælland missed the chance go clear in the race for Denmark's second Champions League invite on Monday, settling for a 1-1 draw at FC Midtjylland.

After wasting a fine set-up from the American at the quarter-hour, Uffe Beck hit for his first Wild Tigers goal near the break.

The visitors would concede with 20 minutes left, however, leaving FCN with a two-point advantage over third-place AC Horsens.
