They are among the poster boys for analytics in European soccer, a team that scores nearly half of its goals from set pieces and operates a "justice league" that has nothing to do with superheroes. Now, FC Midtjylland - an upstart that has already upended the Danish game in its 21-year existence - is about to find out how its data-driven and statistical approach fares in the Champions League after qualifying for the competition's group stage for the first time. Getting drawn in a group containing six-time champion Liverpool, storied Dutch team Ajax and ascendant Italian club Atalanta is holding no fear for Midtjylland, whose outlook on soccer could easily be termed an experiment. "For us," captain Erik Sviatchenko said, "it's about looking underneath the surface." In 2014, Matthew Benham, a former professional gambler who owns a company that uses mathematical models to predict the results of sports matches, took a controlling interest in Midtjylland - a club from central Denmark formed 15 years earlier as a result of a merger between two rival teams. The arrival of Benham, who already owned second-tier English club Brentford, meant Midtjylland had access - via his company, Smartodds - to a database of players across all teams and leagues in Europe, and even beyond. The deep analysis of the players' performances, using metrics such as chances created and quality of crosses, helped Midtjylland pinpoint prospects who may have been undervalued because their underlying statistics suggested they were better than they appeared. "For instance, take a player in the third division in Germany," Sviatchenko told The Associated Press. "All the statistics they have, you put into the formula and you see this player would actually be able to cope at...
