One of the biggest surprises in the season, AC Horsens, meets in the late Friday match Silkeborg, who, with just one victory in the last five matches, is fighting for life at the bottom of the Superliga.
It speaks for the game:
Horsens has found stability – they have only lost one out of the last seven matches (against FCM)
The pressure Horsens put on deadbolts can be a problem for Silkeborg, who is not known to possess great strength in the air game.
Silkeborg played a terrible battle against FC Helsingør, where personal mistakes were transformed into goals.
Tobias Salquist has had major problems in the center defense of Silkeborg in Flinta’s absence. Here he is forced to the fullest by Finnbogason.
Shooting and Fun in the center of Silkeborg can be a hard task for the physical monsters in Okosun and Bjarke Jacobsen.
Silkeborg only succeeds in scoring over 2 goals four times in the season, while they are bad at closing bagi (26 goals closed)
Sikosek is incredibly vulnerable in the air game – if Horsens can get posts from the right to the back post, he does not win many duels.
Twice Silkeborg has met top 6 teams at home this season, both times being defeated.
It speaks against the game:
The artificial grass speaks for Silkeborg. Faster ball move and the like. does not fit Horsens perfectly.
Silkeborg is much better home than out. 12 out of 14 points are collected at home.
Robert Skov also has a tendency to play fantastic at home – a player who hurts most teams.
The reverse meeting between the two teams was a messy affair. Can Silkeborg avoid it, they have a good chance.
