Team News: Hobro IK
Hobro IK boss Peter Sørensen doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match with a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
In all likelihood, Hobro should kick off with a 4-1-4-1 formation for this game, handing starts to Adrian Kappenberger, Frederik Elkaer, Simon Jakobsen, Brandon Onkony, Mathias Haarup, Nicholas Gotfredsen, Imed Louati, Mathies Skjellerup, Hamse Hussein, Mads Hvilsom and Pål Alexander Kirkevold.
Team News: Lyngby BK
Due to a mostly full-strength group, there is only the one fitness problem for the Lyngby BK gaffer Christian Nielsen to contend with. Adam Sörensen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We are inclined to think that De kongeblå seem most likely to play in a 3-5-2 system, starting Frederik Schram, Filip Panjeskovic, Lasse Nielsen, Frederik Winther, Pascal Gregor, Jesper Christjansen, Ertugrul Teksen, Magnus Westergaard, Gustav Marcussen, Emil Nielsen and Frederik Gytkjær.
We’re of the opinion that Lyngby BK might need a bit of good fortune to put one past this Hobro IK side who we think will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
Therefore, we predict a very competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Hobro IK at the end of the match.
