Paul Onuachu scored twice as nine-man Midtjlland defeated Nordsjelland 3-2 at the Farum Stadium on Saturday.

The Nigerian's brace plus Andre Romer's strike helped them outscore Kasper Hjulmand's side despite Karlo Bartolec and Andreas Maxso's strikes for the home team.

The 22-year-old scored the Wolves first and the second goal in the first and 28th-minute before Roemer's goal in the 72nd minute handed the visitors a 3-0 lead.

In final 16 minutes, Janus Drachmann and Markus Halsti were sent off, reducing Jess Thorup's men to nine-man but Bartolec and Maxso's goals failed to see the hosts escape defeat.

The goals were Onuachu's 17th and 18th goal in 34 appearances for the Danish topflight outfit as his side moves to third on the log with 54 points from 35 games.

The Europa League place chasing Wolves will welcome fourth-placed Lyngby in their next game at the MCH Arena on May 28.
