Season ticket holders at Right to Dream Park haven’t seen too many victories this season, with Nordsjælland languishing in the 10th position so far. The guesting AaB will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.

Insights:
  • Nordsjælland haven’t played a single 0-0 game.
  • AaB have played more matches over 2,5 goals away than home.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

This stadium uses artifical turf, unlike AaB's home stadium. The visitors last four games on artifical turf have ended in 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.
