Fergie to field strongest possible team against Aalborg

By Soccer Blog | Sep 30, 2008

Ahead of tonight’s trip to the Energi Nord Arena, Sir Alex Ferguson has stated that he will field his strongest possible team against Danish side Aalborg. The Danish champions are coached by Bruce Rioch, the man who brought Dennis Bergkamp to Arsenal, and who certainly knows a thing or two about beating United.

United, who drew 0-0 with Villareal two weeks ago, know that a slip up against tiny Aalborg could cost them dear. Barring Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves, Sir Alex has most of his stars ready to take the pitch, and we could see Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov all in action today. The last time United visited Denmark was in 2006, when a second string lineup lost to FC Copenhagen.

Aalborg drew 0-0 with Celtic at Parkhead in their first group game, with Barry Robson missing a penalty for the Scottish giants.

Moroccan keeper Karim Zaza may have plenty to do if United play their free flowing style of football that saw them dominate nation and continent last season.

And if Aalborg do win, you can be rest assured that the 10,500 capacity Energi Nord Arena will do more than just erupt.
