THE TEAM NEWS
- Bottom-of-the-league Silkeborg entered the enforced break whilst on their best run of form this season with a win and two draws giving them some hope of climbing up off the foot of the table.
- Their last outing just before the postponement of the campaign was a 2-1 victory against third-placed AGF which came on the back of consecutive draws against Copenhagen and OB.
- Tightening up their defence has been a big factor in their improved competitiveness and is shown by the fact that they have conceded more than once in a game in only one of their last six league matches.
- Nordsjælland are in strong position to claim a place in the Championship Round having entered the enforced break with only one defeat from their last nine matches they restart the season in fifth place.
- Although they came up short of making it five wins in a row last time out against Brondby there was still a satisfaction in how they fought back twice from going a goal behind to eventually draw 2-2.
- Nordsjælland are the highest scoring team in the Danish Superliga so far this season with 46 goals in 24 matches played. Even when they fall behind in a match, they are confident they have the capabilities to strike back.
A look at the league table could suggest a routine win for the away team but it may not be as simple as that with Silkeborg proving to be tough opposition prior to the enforced break. Nordsjælland have plenty of goal threat, but their own defence has been susceptible and they just don’t inspire the confidence that they will keep a clean sheet. The reverse fixture between these two teams finished 2-2 and a similar outcome can’t be ruled out on this occasion too.
