Soren Frederiksen of Aalborg BK
Aalborg was a total disappointment in this match. Their players had numerous attempts but couldn't put anything on target. Now they find themselves down three goals. I believe they will win at home but making up three goals will be to much. Dila will score at least one goal and that will be enough for them to pull off the upset and advance to the third qualifying round. As the first big club from one of the top leagues around Europe Aalborg have disappointed us all.
