Aalborg is welcoming FC Copenhagen to Aalborg Portland Park in round 9 of the Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Aalborg is undefeated in their last 4 games in the Championship Round, but it’s too little too late for Aalborg because they don’t have a chance to get to the Europa League anymore. During their undefeated stretch, Aalborg has scored 4 goals, while they haven’t conceded a single goal in their last 4 games. Aalborg is in 5th place with 51 points, 52 scored goals, and 42 conceded goals. In their most recent match against Brondby on the road, Aalborg has had only 32% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 71% of the correct passes. Despite being forced to defend for most of the game, Aalborg has scored an early goal from a penalty kick, and after that, they defended really well. Aalborg has won this match 0-1. Andersen is Aalborg’s top goalscorer with 10 goals, while Van Weert added 9 goals. Andersen and Kusk both have 8 assists. Kouzine is the only injured player for Aalborg, and he will not play again this season. Aalborg doesn’t have a chance to get to that second place anymore, which means the only thing they have left to play for is their pride, and I have to say, they are doing a good job.
Copenhagen has been in a terrible, terrible form since the Championship Round started, and they have won only 1 of their last 8 games. Copenhagen has lost 4 of their last 5 games, and with that, Copenhagen has lost their second place in the standings, the place that leads into the Europa League next season. Copenhagen has scored solid 55 goals this season while conceding 41 goals, which is close to the other teams in this Championship Round. Sotiriou is Copenhagen’s top goalscorer with 9 goals, while N’Doye added 8 goals, and Santos has 7 goals. Viktor Fischer has added 8 assists. Santos is the only injured player for Copenhagen, but he should be ready for the Europa League which starts in a couple of weeks. In their last Championship Round game against Aarhus at home, Copenhagen has had more possession, 63%, solid 5 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and decent 76% of the correct passes, but Copenhagen was bad on the defensive end, and in the end, they have lost this match 2-4. Copenhagen is in 3rd place in the standings with 62 points, just 1 point behind Aarhus in second place, but even if Copenhagen wins both of their last two games, they no longer depend only on themselves. As far as the Europa League goes, Copenhagen will face Turkish leader Basaksehir at home, but they will need to get their form on track if Copenhagen wants to have a chance in this matchup.
Copenhagen hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, while Aalborg hasn’t lost any of their last 5 home games against Copenhagen. Aalborg is in a much better form in this matchup, but Copenhagen has been scoring a solid amount of goals, and for that reason, I will pick something on goals here.
