Aalborg is welcoming Aarhus to Aalborg Portland Park in round 6 of the Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Aalborg is in the last place of the Championship Round standings with only 44 points, and despite winning their last two Superliga games, Aalborg is not playing well overall, and they lost in the DBU Pokalen finals against Sonderjyske last week. In their last Superliga game against Brondby at home, Aalborg was the better team with 49% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, and 75% of the correct passes. With 1 goal in each half, Aalborg has won this game 2-0. In the attacking end this season, Aalborg has scored good 50 goals and is among the best offensive teams in Superliga, but their defense hasn’t been good enough and they conceded 42 goals. Andersen has scored 10 goals and added 8 assists for Aalborg so far this season, while Van Weert added 8 goals. Kusk also has 8 assists for Aalborg this season. Kouizine is the only injured player for Aalborg and will not be in the lineup for this game. If only Aalborg started to play the soccer they are playing now just a bit sooner, they might have been closer to the Europa League, but with only 5 games left, and massive 13 points from the last Europa League spot, Aalborg doesn’t have anything to play for, expect their pride of course.
Aarhus is solid this season and they are in 3rd place in the Championship Round standings with 57 points, close to the second place, but massive 18 points from the top of the standings. There are a few teams that have scored a lot of goals in Superliga this season, and Aarhus is one of those teams with 50 scored goals, while their defense has been decent with 36 conceded goals. Mortensen is the top goal scorer for Aarhus with 14 goals, while Thorsteinsson added 8 goals, and Bundu has 8 goals and 7 assists. Duncan and Kaastrup are both injured, and the season is over for them. Since the Championship Round started, Aarhus has 3 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw, alongside 8 scored goals and 8 conceded goals. In their most recent Superliga game against Copenhagen at home, Aarhus has had only 35% of ball possession, but 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and low 65% of the correct passes. Aarhus has won this game 1-0 by an own goal from Copenhagen in the 75th minute. Aarhus could still go down in the standings, but I don’t think they will, and I believe Aarhus will end up going to the Europa League qualifications.
During the last 39 games with Aalborg playing at home, Aalborg has won 20 games, Aarhus has won 10 games, while 9 games ended in a draw. Aarhus can still climb the standings to second place, but Aalborg’s season is basically over. Frankly, this one could go either way and for that reason, I will pick something on goals here.
