AaB vs Nordsjaelland
Denmark – Superligaen
Date: Sunday, 25 February 2018
Kick-Off at 13:00 UK
Venue: Aalborg Portland Park (Aalborg).
Nordsjaelland have rebounded from the 2-1 loss away at SoderjyskE beating the top six rivals OB with the same scoreline in front of their crowd last weekend. They’ve thus taken advantage of Brondby’s slip up to narrow the gap between them and the second place to five points and a win here might keep them in position to keep the dream of challenging the second place alive.
Nonetheless, getting the victory at Aalborg Portland Park will not be an easy task given that AaB generally tend to play very well in front of the home fans. The hosts hare actually winless in last four matches at Aalborg Portland Park, but the opposition included the likes of Midtjylland, Copenhagen and Brondby in the last three rounds which. Prior to this streak, AaB were on a run of three straight wins at home in Superligaen.
The Wild Tigers have lost their top scorer Emiliano Marcondes in January (bagged 17 goals in the first part of the season) which will affect their attacking performances in the rest of the season. Kasper Hjulmand will thus need to find the formula for keeping thing quiet at the back since Nordsjaelland have really tended to concede loads in the first half of the season, particularly on travels. This is why nine of their ten matches away from home in this term saw both teams on target.
AaB vs Nordsjaelland: Head-to-head
AaB have been slightly more successful over the course of history and they lead the head to head tie by four wins ahead of their 46th encounter with the Wild Tigers.
All of last four head to head meetings between these rivals have seen the BTTS option “come in”.
AaB were on a run of three straight wins before Nordsjaelland picked up four points from last two H2H outings.
AaB vs Nordsjaelland: Prediction
Clearly, backing goals at both ends just has to be the way to go and we’ll take the 1.57 odds for this option with higher stakes.
Alternatively, we’ll go with the hosts to net two or more goals against the struggling defense of Nordsjaelland’s at the odds of 1.83.
