FC Nordsjaelland is welcoming Aarhus to Right to Dream Park in round 9 of the Championship Round in Danish Superliga.
Nordsjaelland is just not having a good time in this Championship Round, and with 46 points, Nordsjaelland is in the last place int eh standings. Offensively, Nordsjaelland has been decent with 57 scored goals, but their defense is the worst of all the teams in the Championship Round with 51 conceded goals. Nordsjaelland has only 1 win in this Championship Round, alongside 5 losses, and 2 draws. In their latest Championship Round game against Midtjylland on the road, Nordsjaelland has had only 32% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and low 68% of the correct passes. Nordsjaelland was leading 1-2 at the half time, but in the end, Nordsjaelland has lost this match 6-3. Kudus and Damsgaard both scored 11 goals for Nordsjaelland this season, while Atanaga added 7 goals. Rygaard added 6 assists for Nordsjaelland. Villdasen is injured, while Francis is suspended because of the yellow cards. Nordsjaelland is having a tough time, especially on the defensive end, but they got to the Championship Round. Nordsjaelland can’t get to the Europa League anymore this season, and with only 2 games left in the season, their struggles will be over soon.
Aarhus is playing solid soccer as of late, and they have scored 7 goals in their last 2 games while allowing only 2 goals. With two wins in their last two games, Aarhus has skipped Copenhagen in second place, and they are now in the spot that will take them to the Europa League. Aarhus now has 63 points, 57 scored goals, and 39 conceded goals. Mortensen is Aarhus’ leading goal scorer with 17 goals, while Bundu and Thorsteinsson both have 8 goals. Bundu also added 7 assists. Duncan and Kaastrup are both injured, while Poulsen and Thorsteinsson are both suspended because of the yellow cards. Aarhus was playing their direct Europa League competitor Copenhagen in their previous game, and they had 37% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and low 60% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a particularly good game for Aarhus, but Copenhagen had it worse. Aarhus has scored 2 goals in each half, and in the end, Aarhus has won this game 2-4. A win in this match against Nordsjaelland will enough for Aarhus to secure the Europa League spot only if Copenhagen doesn’t win one of their last two games, but Aarhus shouldn’t calculate and be dependable on other teams. Aarhus is in a good form, and I think that in the end, Aarhus will be the one going to the Europa League from the second place of the Superliga Championship Round.
Nordsjaelland is in a terrible form and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games, and they haven’t won any of their last 6 home games. I will side with the team in better form here, and that is Aarhus.
