Nordsjaelland restored parity in the 36th minute following Mathias Jensen's close range strike before Ernest Asante added the second for the host in the 54th minute after he was put through by Emiliano Marcondes.
Aalborg equalized on the 70th minute mark courtesy an own goal by right full back Vicktor Tranberg. But, Marcondes, who provided the assist for Asante's goal grabbed the winner in the 73rd minute.
Last week's two-goal hero Godsway Donyoh made way for M Rasmussen in the 88th minute when the victory seemed to have been bagged.
Meanwhile, Collins Tanor made a cameo appearance for coach Kasper Hjulmand's side in the 76th minute.
