Aarhus is hosting Midtjylland at Ceres Park in round 7 in the Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Aarhus is doing well so far, and with 57 points, Aarhus is in 3rd place in the standings, just 4 points away from the Europa League, and seeing how bad Copenhagen is playing right now, Aarhus has a good shot at getting there. In their last 6 games in the Championship Round, Aarhus has 3 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw. During this stretch, Aarhus has scored 8 goals, while conceding 9 goals. With 50 scored goals, Aarhus is the lowest-scoring team in the Championship Round, but with only 37 conceded goals, Aarhus is the second-best defensive team. Mortensen has scored 14 goals so far for Aarhus, while Bundu and Thorsteinsson added 8 goals each. Bundu also has 7 assists. Duncan and Kaastrup are injured, while Poulsen is suspended because of the red card. In their latest Championship Round against Aalborg on the road, Aarhus has had 48% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and low 64% of the correct passes. Aarhus conceded a goal in the 38th minute and then conceded a red card in the 51st minute, and in the end, Aarhus has lost this match 1-0. Aarhus is a solid team that deserves to get to the Europa League because they are playing better soccer than Copenhagen and Brondby, and I hope they do get there.
With 3 straight wins in the Championship Round, Midtjylland is the new champions of the Superliga. Even though there are still 4 games left to be played in the season, Midtjylland is in the first place with 78 points, huge 17 points ahead of Copenhagen, and since there are only 12 points left to be won, Midtjylland has won the title 4 games before the end of the season. The thing that brought Midtjylland to the top and kept them there is their outstanding defense this season, Midtjylland has conceded only 20 goals while scoring 53 goals. In their latest Superliga game against Copenhagen at home, Midtjylland has had 42% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 72% of the correct passes. Midtjylland’s defense got their job done, but their offense was fantastic, and they have scored 4 goals from 4 shots. Midtjylland has won this match 4-0. Mabil is Midtjylland’s top goalscorer with only 8 goals, while Evander and Kaba both added 7 goals. Evander also added 9 assists. Olsen, Isaksen, Sparv, and Riis are all injured and will not be in the lineup for this game. There is not much to say except mission accomplished, and congratulations to Midtjylland on the title.
I’m sure that Midtjylland’s players will be in an excellent mood after securing the title, but that doesn’t mean they will just roll over in the last 4 games. Aarhus needs the win, which means they will attack, and that could potentially leave them open for the counterattacks. I will pick something on goals here.
