Team News: Aalborg BK
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Aalborg BK manager Martí Cifuentes to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Lucas Andersen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: FC Midtjylland
Midtjylland manager Bo Henriksen has to currently contend with reduced team options. Aral Simsir (Corona virus) and Valdemar Birksö (Shoulder Injury) will miss out on this game.
We believe that Aalborg BK could find themselves struggling to score goals against this FC Midtjylland outfit who we reckon will get the vital goal that wins it.
We’re therefore seeing a good battle with a 0-1 advantage for FC Midtjylland when all is said and done.
