Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park (Aarhus).
The Whites convincingly put away Rosenborg in their Atlantic Cup tie with the aid of home advantage. The visitors did make an attempt to claw back into the game, by equalizing the opener in the 19th minute. But the second half really belonged to David Nielsen and his men. Dino Mikanovic and Youssef Toutouh combined to score two goals for the hosts. The match ended 3-2, after the guests slotted in a late consolation goal.
The team from West Jylland needs to pick up their away from if they are to stay safe in the Championship Group. Right now, just two points provide them safety, and they can no longer ride on their home form alone. Other teams are catching up.
The team’s last trip on the road ended in disaster against FC Copenhagen. Three unanswered goals went past them, and all John Lammers’s men could do was just stand and watch.

The City’s team is unbeaten in h2h ties for the last three years. Moreover, at their home, they perform a notch better and has recorded wins in the last four games on the trot. Also, they have won four of their last five home-ties, while their counterparts were winless in four of their last five trips on the road. It’s logical to back the hosts to win the tie.
