Silkeborg vs Horsens
Competition: Danish Superligaen
Date: 18th February 2017
Kick-off: 16:00 CET
Silkeborg welcome Horsens to Silkeborg Stadion in Saturday afternoon’s Danish Superligaen clash, and are favourites to pick up all three points to leapfrog their opponents in the table and potentially narrow the gap to the top-three. Silkeborg were in good form prior to the winter break, while Horsens couldn’t stop losing games, and the hosts could well edge a victory this weekend as a result.
Home side Silkeborg are currently 10th in the Danish Superligaen table with 24 points from 21 games this season, having lost just two of their last 14 outings. On home soil, the favourites have been convincing too, boasting four wins and three draws from their previous seven at Silkeborg Stadion, and the poor form of Horsens could see them making it three home wins in four.
As for the visitors, Horsens are three places and three points better off the division than Silkeborg, but their recent form has been poor. The away side have lost three of their last four outings in the league, while failing to win four of their last five games on the road. Their defensive record is one of the worst in the Superligaen but they’re frequent scorers, so Saturday’s clash might be an entertaining outing.
Silkeborg vs Horsens: Head to head stats
It’s Horsens who boast the bragging rights from recent meetings, having beaten Silkeborg three times in their last five head-to-heads. And the visitors have, in fact, enjoyed a six-year unbeaten run against Silkeborg in the Danish Superligaen. This weekend could see a turnaround, however, as the two sides drew the reverse fixture earlier this season, and haven’t met at Silkeborg Stadion for four years.
Silkeborg vs Horsens: Prediction
With Silkeborg enjoying the better form and being strong on home soil, they should enough to dispatch of an Horsens side who can’t build up any momentum on the road. There could be goals, however, as the visitors score and concede at free will while Silkeborg have been prolific on home soil.
