Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the FC Copenhagen v Silkeborg IF game (plus the best game odds).
FC Copenhagen, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 4-1 Conference League Qualifiers success over Torpedo-BelAZ.
Matches involving FC Copenhagen have often been exciting affairs recently with plenty of scoring anticipated. Over their past six clashes, the sum total of 25 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 4.17 goals per game) with 15 of these coming from FCK.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that FC Copenhagen:
- are unbeaten in the league by Silkeborg IF in their last 9 matches. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- are unbeaten in their last 12 home league matches. A very good run at home.
In their previous fixture, Silkeborg IF drew 0-0 in the Superliga match with SønderjyskE.
In that match, Silkeborg IF managed 67% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 1 on target. On the other side, SønderjyskE had 9 shots at goal with 3 on target.
Proving their bias toward productive matches, we’ve seen goals 22 times in the previous 6 games in which Silkeborg IF have taken to the pitch, giving an average of 3.67 goals for each fixture. Their opponents have hit 8 from this total. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.
Taking a look at their past results, Silkeborg IF:
- have left without a victory over FC Copenhagen in games played away from home for the previous 13 league matches. A truly shameful run of away results.
- have not been beaten in their last 8 league matches away from home. They've been so good on the road.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league games.
Head to head
A study of their past head to head results going back to 15/10/2016 shows that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Silkeborg IF. They have not managed to get any wins whatsoever while FC Copenhagen have been superior, beating them in 83 per cent of those matches played.
Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 22 in all at an average of 3.67 goals per match.
The last league game between these sides was Superliga match day 22 on 23/02/2020 when it ended Silkeborg IF 1-1 FC Copenhagen.
The referee was Anders Poulsen.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the FC Copenhagen manager Jess Thorup to be concerned about due to a largely intact group of players. Bryan Oviedo (Cartilage Damage) is sidelined. Suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Victor Nelsson and Nicolai Boilesen.
Team News: Silkeborg IF
Silkeborg boss Kent Nielsen has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Joel Felix (Corona virus) and Milan Massop (Unknown Injury) will miss out on this game.
In our view, Silkeborg IF are capable enough to score against this FC Copenhagen lineup, although that isn’t expected to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see a narrow 2-1 winning score for FC Copenhagen by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. It really should be an interesting one.
