Team News: Randers
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Randers gaffer Thomas Thomasberg to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Mikkel Kallesöe (Shoulder fracture) won’t play.
It’s our opinion that Hestene could use a 4-4-2 system, handing starts to Patrik Carlgren, Adam Andersson, Hugo Andersson, Simon Graves, Bjoern Kopplin, Tosin Kehinde, Lasse Berg Johnsen, Frederik Lauenborg, Jakob Ankersen, Marvin Egho and F. B. Kristensen.
Team News: Silkeborg IF
From a largely available squad, there is only the one fitness problem for the Silkeborg IF manager Kent Nielsen to be concerned with. Gustav Dahl (Concussion) won’t be playing here.
It’s our belief that De røde appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-3-2-1 lineup, choosing Nicolai Larsen, Oliver Sonne, Tobias Salquist, Andre Calisir, Lukas Engel, Stefan Thordarson, Mark Brink, Anders Klynge, Sebastian Joergensen, Kasper Kusk and Nicklas Helenius.
We’ve got the feeling that Silkeborg IF and Randers are both capable of scoring here.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. Our tip is therefore for a hard-fought 1-1 score at the end of the match.
