Aarhus is hosting FC Copenhagen at Ceres Park in round 5 of the Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Aarhus is a solid team that is in 3rd place in the standings with 54 points, the last place that leads to the Europa League. Aarhus has scored 49 goals so far this season while conceding 36 goals in 30 games. In their last 4 games since the Championship Round started, Aarhus has 2 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss from their most recent match. During these 4 games, Aarhus has scored 7 goals and conceded 8 goals. In their last Superliga game against Aalborg at home, Aarhus had had 47% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and low 70% of the correct passes. Aarhus’ defense was just not working in this match and they conceded 3 goals from 38th until the 44th minute of the first half. Aarhus was able to score a goal, but it wasn’t enough for them to turn the game around. In the 91st minute Aarhus has conceded another goal, and, in the end, they lost this match 1-4. Mortensen is Aarhus’ top goal scorer with 14 goals, while Thorsteinsson and Bundu added 8 goals each. Bundu also added 7 assists. Duncan and Kaastrup are both injured, while Juelsgaard is suspended because of the yellow cards. Aarhus is 6 points ahead of Brondby, but they are still in danger of losing the Europa League spot. Aarhus has to get back on the winning track as soon as possible.
Copenhagen has been wildly inconsistent since the Championship Round started and they have won only 1 game, alongside 2 draws and 1 loss. Copenhagen is in 2nd place in the Championship Round standings with 61 points, 52 scored goals, and 33 conceded goals, massive 11 points behind Midtjylland, and with only 6 games left, I just don’t see Copenhagen catching up to them. Sotiriou has scored 9 goals for Copenhagen, while N’Doye added 8 goals, and Santos has 7 goals. Viktor Fischer is the best assistant in Copenhagen with 8 assists. N’Doye, Fischer, and Santos are all injured and will not be playing in this game. In their last Superliga game against Midtjylland at home, Copenhagen has had more possession, 66%, 7 corner kicks, 80% of accurate passes, but not a single shot on goal and the only goal they scored was actually an own goal by Midtjylland. Copenhagen has lost this game 1-2. The injuries of three of their best players certainly had an impact on Copenhagen’s game, but what kept them from being closer to the top is their bad defense this season. Maybe next year Copenhagen, maybe.
Copenhagen was dominant in this matchup and the last game that Aarhus has won against Copenhagen at home was back in 2009. This one could go either way and for that reason, I will rather pick something on goals here.
