Brondby IF is welcoming Aalborg to Brondby Stadium in round 8 of the Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Brondby is in 4th place in the standings with 52 points, and with only 3 games left, Brondby doesn’t have a chance of getting to the Europa League because they are 10 points away from Copenhagen in second place. With 54 scored goals and 40 conceded goals, Brondby is an average team in this Championship Round, and to be honest, they are right where they are supposed to be. In their latest Superliga game against Copenhagen on the road, Brondby was the better team with 51% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and solid 83% of the correct passes. Both teams were struggling in the attacking end of their game, and this match ended in a 0-0 draw. Wilczek is the leading goal scorer for Brondby with 17 goals, while Kaiser added 8 goals. Hedlund has assisted with 10 goals for Brondby this season. There are no injuries in Brondby, but Rosted is suspended because of the yellow cards. Brondby has been in a solid form in the Championship Round, and they have lost only 1 of their last 7 games, but Brondby also has 4 draws during this stretch, which is too many dropped points, and that is what cost Brondby their Europa League spot.
Since they lost in the DBU Pokalen finals 2 weeks ago, Aalborg has been in good form and they haven’t lost any of their last three games, during which they scored 3 goals and conceded 0 goals. With 48 points, 51 scored goals, and 42 conceded goals, Aalborg is in 5th place in this Championship Round standings, and they could still go up or down in the table, but it doesn’t mean anything. Andersen’s is Aalborg’s top goalscorer with 10 goals and 8 assists, while Van Weert added 8 goals, and Kaufmann has 7 goals. Kusk also added 8 assists this season. In their most recent Superliga game against Nordsjaelland on the road, Aalborg has had 41% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 77% of the correct passes. We had a few good chances on both sides in this match, but nothing too exciting, and this match ended in a 0-0 draw. Kouzine is the only injured player for Aalborg, and he will not be playing again this season. Aalborg has been getting better on both ends as of late, but their biggest chance to win a trophy was in the Danish cup competition, DBU Pokalen, which Aalborg lost, and that was certainly a big disappointment for this club. Whether they win or lose their last three games, it doesn’t matter much to Aalborg as far as the standings are concerned, but it’s certainly better to finish the season with a few wins than a few losses.
When playing at home, Brondby has not lost to Aalborg in their last 6 games, and they haven’t lost any of their last 6 home games overall. Neither of these teams could benefit much from the win here, and with that being said, I will pick something on goals here.
