The Søllerød Gold Diggers (1-1) will play host to the Aarhus Tigers (0-2) Saturday, August 29 as the Danish National League heads into the third round and midway point of the shortened 2020 season.
The two teams played each other only once in 2019 with Søllerød coming out on top, 48-28.
The Gold Diggers enter this game with a 1-1 record after disposing of the Aalborg 89ers 62-12 in an impressive showing to open the season but dropping a 29-26 decision to the Copenhagen Towers after leading by two touchdowns late in the contest. Aarhus has had a rough start to the season dropping both games by lopsided scores. They lost to the Triangle Razorbacks 41-6 in their first game and then were beaten 56-12 by the AaB 89ers last weekend.
Søllerød is the highest scoring team in the Danish league so far having scored 88 points in the two games while surrendering 41. Meanwhile, Aarhus has given up 97 points while scoring just 18.
Gold Diggers quarterback Tanner Gueller has thrown for 333 yards and three touchdowns in two games while rushing for 127 and another three scores. He has plenty of weapons led by receiver Frederik Oldenburg who has a pair of touchdowns so far, as well as running back Rasmus Carøe who has three touchdowns so far this season.
On the year, the Tigers young quarterback Alexander Schwartz has thrown for 211 yards and three touchdowns. He key targets are Markus Hachenberg and Magnus Urth along with wide receiver Frederik Andersen.
With heavy rain forecast for game time, expect the Gold Diggers ground game led by Gueller and Carøe to be a major factor
