AaB Aalborg vs Rio Ave by Nvieira
Lets say first of all that the 0-6 result in bucarest is deceiving, because the 6 goals were scored in 20 minutes, after the goal keeper from aalborg was showed the red card, and in a complete period of disorientation from aalborg - apart from that the game was very balanced and aalborg showed a good performance.Usually aalborg ia a team that is very strong in defence (mainly when playing at home), they have a big number of draws in the Danish championship so far (5 draws in 9 games) and although this game is a must win for them, they are going to be very focused in not suffering any goals (the psychological impact of last europe league game will tempt them to not take too much risks).
Rio Ave is im my view a better team, playing a better football, but in the last couple of games haven't really had the results to show - they lost to Braga away (a game where they played with a player less because of a red card in the first half), they lost at home to Arouca, a game where they had a huge amount of goal scoring opportunities that they didn't take, and were somewhat unfortunate to not win - and again the game against D Kiyev where they lost clearly (0-3) to a much stronger team - so confidence isn't at the highest peak now, and I believe a draw will make them happy, because the fighting will be between these 3 teams (steaua , Rio Ave and Alborg) in achieving one spot in the next round. For me this will be a game where both teams will try to secure their defence more then attack and take many risks.
Alborg will have to (maybe on the 2nd part) take a few more risks, but Rio Ave is usually quite good in defence and I believe a draw in this game will be a very likely outcome.
