Emil Holten (Unknown Injury), Milan Massop (Unknown Injury), Anders Hagelskjaer (Unknown Injury), Valance Nambishi (Unknown Injury) and Oscar Hedvall (Knee Injury) are unavailable for Silkeborg gaffer Kent Nielsen.
Team News: Esbjerg
Owing to an otherwise available squad, there’s just a single fitness issue for the Esbjerg manager Troels Bech to be concerned about. Joni Kauko (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here.
For this match, we think that Esbjerg have enough to put one past this Silkeborg IF side, however it probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re tipping a 2-1 advantage for Silkeborg IF at full-time. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
