However, OB are unbeaten since the winter break, and goals on 62 and 82 minutes from Thomas Lindrup turned the game and gave the visitors a 2-1 victory.

AaB victory
In the only all-Superliga tie, AaB repeated their recent 2-0 home league victory against Viborg FF. Martin Ericsson's 21st-minute penalty broke the deadlock, and Christian Lundberg doubled the advantage midway through the second half.
