Odense BK and Getafe CF are in an unenviable position as they reconvene on Matchday 5, with the wrong combination of results in Group H potentially leading to both sides' elimination from the UEFA Europa League with a game to spare.
• No scenario can result in the two clubs reaching the round of 32. A draw coupled with a win for BSC Young Boys against section leaders VfB Stuttgart will mean the end of the road for both.
• Substitute Pedro Ríos converted a splendid free-kick nine minutes from time as Getafe won 2-1 when the sides met for the first time on Matchday 1.
• OB's ten games against Spanish sides have ended W2 D0 L8 (W1 D0 L3 at home).
• The most celebrated of those meetings was OB's 2-0 away win against Getafe's near neighbours Real Madrid CF to secure a 4-3 aggregate victory that knocked the Spanish giants out of the 1994/95 UEFA Cup third round. That triumph was celebrated as 'The Miracle in Madrid'.
• Getafe's only previous meeting with Danish opponents prior to Matchday 1 resulted in a 2-1 win at Aalborg BK in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup group stage.
• A 2-0 win against Young Boys last time out ended a three-game losing streak for OB. Their 2-0 Matchday 2 defeat by Stuttgart was OB's only home loss in their last 12 UEFA club competition matches in Odense.
• Getafe's 3-0 loss to Stuttgart on Matchday 4 was their worst ever result at home in UEFA club competition.
• Getafe have lost all three of their games without scoring since beating OB. They have not won in four continental away ties since defeating SL Benfica 2-1 in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup round of 16.
• OB parted ways with coach Lars Olsen on 14 September, bringing to an end a three-year tenure at the club. They have installed Uffe Pedersen in a caretaker's role, the 56-year-old having previously been in charge at OB between 2002 and 2004.
• 'The Miracle in Madrid' was the only one of OB's four games against Real Madrid that Getafe coach Míchel did not play in. The former midfielder featured in a 4-1 win in Odense, a 6-0 triumph at the Santiago Bernabéu in a 1990/91 European Champion Clubs' Cup first round tie, and another 3-2 win in Denmark in the first leg of the fateful 1994/95 encounter.
• One of the five locally born players at the heart of Madrid's successful 1980s and 1990s sides – dubbed the Quinta del Buitre (the Vulture's Cohort, in honour of their leader Emilio Butragueño) – Míchel won six Spanish titles and two UEFA Cups as a Madrid player. Initially a TV pundit after retirement, Míchel went into coaching with Rayo Vallecano, joining Getafe in April 2009 after a spell with Real Madrid's academy.
