The chances of a good game for the hosts will increase with the return of captain Rasmus Würtz from ban. The defensive midfielder is excellent to set the pace and i expect to see an improved AaB team compared to the last match, while Esbjerg will probably be without influential central midfielder Magnus Lekven, who also missed the last two matches. Another important absence is right back Ryan Laursen. Laursen have played all matches this season, but misses the match with a ban. Esbjerg do not have any back alternatives and will therefore be forced to use a central defender in the position.
With the AaB midfield reunited, they should be clear favourites.
