Aarhus vs Aalborg
Danish Superliga Playoffs,
Friday, 28 May 2021
Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park & Arena.
Aarhus and Aalborg are set to battle it out for a place in the UEFA Conference League qualifications on Friday afternoon when they take on each other in the last Superliga action of the season at Ceres Park & Arena.
Aarhus have been the better of the two teams throughout the season and they will thus have the home court advantage in a single-legged Danish UEFA Conference League playoffs.
While fans are allowed to visit stadiums in Denmark, we do wonder if the home turf will play such a significant factor for the hosts here, considering the two teams’ form going into the clash.
Aalborg will certainly enter the game in much higher spirits after celebrating a demolishing 0-4 victory over SonderjyskE in a direct clash for the top spot in the Relegation Round.
AaB needed a victory away at SonderjyskE on the final day and they got it in some style, putting four goals past the direct rivals for the European place and boosting up the confidence ahead of this playoffs tie.
To make things even better for the head coach Marti Cifuentes, his team had four different players on the scoreline on the occasion.
The story is opposite with AGF Aarhus who have been on the wrong end on a 0-4 thumping on the final day. They conceded four unanswered goals away at title hopefuls Midtjylland on Monday afternoon.
However, it is worth noting that the head coach David Nielsen took advantage of the opportunity to rest his main stars, including the team’s top scorer Patrick Mortensen, on the occasion.
Aarhus vs Aalborg Head-to-head
Aalborg have been the more successful side in this match-up historically, winning 38 and losing 27 of 86 clashes against Aarhus.
Nevertheless, Aarhus came on top when the two teams last played each other, celebrating a demolishing 3-0 victory in late-December last year at Ceres Park & Arena.
Three or more goals were seen in four of the last six H2H outings.
Aarhus vs Aalborg Prediction
There is little value in backing the home win at the 1.75 odds here. The visitors will come into the game in much higher spirits after netting four goals away at SonderjyskE on Monday. Aarhus, on the other side, lost two in a row (to top two teams in Denmark, though).
Moving forward, Aarhus won only two of the last eight home matches in the competition. They also won only one of the last five encounters with Aalborg. This is why we see the value in backing the visitors not to lose at the odds of 2.00.
You can also hardly make a mistake backing the Both Teams To Score pick at the 1.72 odds.
