Team News: Silkeborg IF
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Silkeborg IF gaffer Kent Nielsen to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group. Gustav Dahl (Concussion) will miss out.
In all likelihood, De røde should use a 4-3-3 formation for the game featuring Nicolai Larsen, Oliver Sonne, Tobias Salquist, Joel Felix, Lukas Engel, Stefan Thordarson, Mark Brink, Mads Kaalund, Sebastian Joergensen, Nicklas Helenius and Nicolai Vallys.
Team News: Aalborg BK
Owing to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the Aalborg BK manager Lars Friis has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
From our viewpoint, Aalborg BK will likely elect for a 4-3-3 lineup, going with Josip Posavec, Kristoffer Pallesen, Mathias Ross, Lars Kramer, Jakob Ahlmann, Louka Prip, Malthe Hoejholt, Iver Fossum, Allan Sousa, Anosike Ementa and Lucas Andersen.
Silkeborg IF should have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the same time, Aalborg BK are also probably going to find it difficult to score a goal of their own but we can see them converting at least once as well.
Accordingly, we see a comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Silkeborg IF at the conclusion of the game.
