Silkeborg vs Aalborg by Meese
Silkeborg is not having really good start into the season, since the team has only one victory in first ten rounds, but at least the team comes from three straight matches without defeat, having a victory and two draws and surely have improved their morale at least a bit.
They come from a goalless game away to Esbjerg last weekend, even though the team showed more out of two during the ninety minutes. They were more concrete and surely did deserve more being way more threatening side, still scoring goals remains one of their biggest worries so far, since the team has netted only seven goals so far in ten matches, by far the lowest number in Superliga. In front of own fans they have suffered three defeats prior to winning over Aarhus ten days ago and the team is surely aiming to continue undefeated streak and impress further in front of own fans.
Silkeborg will be missing first choice goalkeeper Jens Rinke (3/0) and other substitute goalkeeper Kristian Faeste (no performance so far in the season). Midfielder Sammy Skytte is also sidelined with injury from the start of the season.
Aalborg, on the other side, can not be completely satisfied with the start of the new season, but the team still resides in the upper part of the table and has every chances of improving further as the season progresses. Currently, they are at fifth position with a game less played, having seven points less than leaders from Copenhagen and just three less than second placed Brondby.
In the most recent game on Thursday evening, players of Aalborg managed to get a narrow 1:0 victory over Viborg at home, thanks to a goal from Pedersen in 58th minute. Overall, ball possession was shared equally, but the hosts were much more threatening and did deserve something more ouf of the game, being way more concrete out of the chances created. They have two victories, a draw and a defeat out of four matches on the road and need to impress here after two consecutive non-victories on the road (loss to Lyngby and a draw against Copenhagen).
Visitors are missing midfielder Rasmus Wurtz (10/1) who is suspended, while injured remain defender Jakob Ahlmann (4/0) and other midfielder, Thomas Enevoldsen (7/1).
- AaB have scored at least 2 goals in their last 5 matches against Silkeborg.
Silkeborg has improved recently, but Aalborg remains a favorite for this one. However, my first betting choice will be over goals, since both teams are coming in decent shape and the game itself, should be more open than what the bookies suggest. Aalborg should dominate, but I definitely see improved Silkeborg having plenty of chances to score as well.
