Vendsyssel vs AaB Aalborg
Date: Monday, 6th August 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Nord Energy Arena (Hjorring).
Vendsyssel made a good first impression at the Danish Superliga, but they face a tough test in AaB from Aalborg on Monday evening.
After finishing third in the Danish First Division last season, Vendsyssel earned the chance of playing in Superliga for the first time by beating Lyngby in the play-offs.
The team from Hjorring then made a positive start to the campaign with back-to-back wins by exact 3-2 score-line. However, their first real test arrived last week against Nordsjaelland, a test they failed with a 0-3 defeat.
AaB on the other hand, made a similar start by beating Sonderjyske and defending champions Midtjylland. Yet, they were brought back to ground with the humbling 0-4 defeat at Copenhagen last week.
The team from Aalborg were 5th in the last season and they are potential candidates to challenge the dominance of big three this season.
Vendsyssel vs AaB Aalborg Head-to-head
The teams met just once in a competitive meeting so far, which happened in the Cup tie back in 2015. Vendsyssel, who hosted the game lost 2-0 to their Monday’s visitors.
We can see that the teams have met 6 times in friendlies since 2010 and AaB are unbeaten with 5 wins and 1 draw.
Vendsyssel vs AaB Aalborg Prediction
Despite a positive start to the season, Vendsyssel’s defensive woes are clearly visible with the team conceding 7 goals in the space of three games. They have 6 points in the bag, but those came against Odense and Esbjerg, the teams yet to open their account this time.
Aalborg are contenders for a top half finish this season and they have the service of a better experienced squad than the newly promoted boys.
With their last fixture being a humiliating defeat against Copenhagen, Morten Wieghorst’s men are expected to raise their game and bag an away win here.
