Lyngby vs Silkeborg
Competition: Danish Superligaen
Date: 10th December 2016
Kick-off: 16:00 CET
Lyngby welcome Silkeborg to Lyngby Stadion in Saturday’s Danish Superligaen clash, and are favourites to come out on top to end their recent dip in form. Lyngby have struggled in recent weeks, but have a tight defensive record which should see them contain a Silkeborg outfit who have been impotent on the road of late. Three points for the hosts could see them go third in the table, while Silkeborg risk their points advantage over the bottom-three being halved.
Home side Lyngby are currently fifth in the Danish Superligaen with 30 points from 20 games this season, having won only two from their last five ahead of this weekend’s clash. Lyngby have won three and lost three of their previous six at Lyngby Stadion, but their impressive defensive record at home (10 games, 7 goals conceded) could see them nullifying Silkeborg who haven’t been too full of goals on their travels in 2016/17.
Silkeborg find themselves 11th in the division with 23 points, having won two and drawn one of their last four. Away from the home, however, the visitors have been short of results. Silkeborg have picked up eight points from a possible 30 on their travels this season, having failed to score in three of their last five away outings, but boast a good record at Lyngby Stadion in recent meetings.
Lyngby vs Silkeborg: Head to head stats
Silkeborg have won three of their last four head-to-heads in the Danish Superligaen with Lyngby, although they did lost their most recent clash back in August. Lyngby haven’t managed a won at home to Silkeborg post-millennium, but they could well change that this weekend.
Lyngby vs Silkeborg: Prediction
Lyngby haven’t been in the most convincing form ahead of their clash with Silkeborg, and their head-to-head record doesn’t make for impressive reading either. However, Lyngby have a tight defence on home soil which could see them keep Silkeborg at bay to potentially move into the top-three of the Danish Superligaen.
