The 29th round of the Danish Superliga will be played on Wednesday and Thursday. The most interesting match will be Aalborg v FC Copenhagen on Thursday. Aalborg won The Double in 2014 after a 4-2 win in the Cup against FC Copenhagen. This year FC Copenhagen won the Cup with a 2-1 victory against AGF and look to take the Championship as well to secure The Double 2016.
AARHUS v ESBJERG WEDNESDAY 12th at 19:00
This might not be the match to choose if I was interested in selling the quality of the Danish Superliga to the wide football audience in Europe. Nevertheless the important part is to find value in the betting and that is exactly why I have chosen this match. Both teams are in horrible form just picking up 2 points from the last 5 matches.
Aarhus have the midfield motor Jens Jønsson out with suspension, but will have Danny Olsen, Elmar Bjarnason and Morten “Duncan” Rasmussen back in the squad. On Monday, Aarhus announced on their website that five players would not get a new contract at the end of the season. After losing the Cup Final last week, Aarhus have nothing to play for the remainder of the season.
Esbjerg will have Ronnie Schwartz out with suspension, but Mohammed Fellah, Bjørn Paulsen and Daniel Stenderup are back after missing the latest match. Their attack has been awful, scoring just 2 goals in 5 matches. This really makes you wonder if the bet for this match is correct, but I really expect to see two teams try something new as they have nothing left to play for this season.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Over 2.5 goals at 2.12
AALBORG v FC COPENHAGEN THURSDAY 12TH at 19:00
FC Copenhagen are cruising to another Championship, but the biggest hurdle on the way will be this match in Aalborg. Both teams are in great form with Aalborg bagging 10 points for the last 5 matches and FC Copenhagen with 11 points.
Aalborg will have Kenneth Emil Petersen (CB) back after suspension which will be important against the big attackers. Benjamin Verbic is out with suspension for FC Copenhagen, but it will not have a huge effect as the team has a lot of quality players to cover his position. The two teams top the ball possession with 54% and 53%, also the average goal per match with 1.9 and 1.8 and even shots on target per match with 5.5 and 5.0.
These stats might suggest that we could have match with many goals, but when the teams play in Aalborg there are not many goals. FC Copenhagen will have the ball most of the time and Aalborg will be ready with the counter attacks. This will be a very tactical match from the beginning and I find huge value in this.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Under 1 goal in 1st half at 1.88
Prices correct at the time of writing.
