Silkeborg – Early momentum with Monday’s hosts?

Buoyed by their highest league finish in more than two decades, Silkeborg have sprinted out of the traps to assume second spot, behind Nordsjaelland who are the only team to have won every match so far. After a shaky start initially, when former Aston Villa striker Nicklas Helenius struck twice in the second half to rescue a 2-2 draw away at newly-promoted Lyngby, the one-time Danish league champions have found their stride.

Victory last time out against Brondby, defeating last season’s fourth place side 2-0 at home, earned Kent Nielsen and his team their second successive three point haul. This after producing arguably the display of the campaign thus far to inflict a 3-1 loss upon Midtjylland away from home on Matchday 2. Now, they return to JYSK Park where they can boast wins in five of their past six Superliga home fixtures.

Key Stat: Last week’s 2-0 win at home to Brondby snapped a five-game streak without a clean sheet for Silkeborg, whose shutout record isn’t the best having registered only three across 17 previous Superliga matches.


Silkeborg Win & Both Teams Score



Aalborg – Winless stretch into double digits?

Only the big two of FC Copenhagen and Midtjylland won more matches (both 10) on the road in 2021-22’s Danish Superliga than the seven of Aalborg, whose tally of 25 points from 16 away games was very nearly as many as opponents Silkeborg would earn on home soil. It is this which should serve as inspiration as De Rode go about arresting their longest winless run in the top-flight for thirteen years.

AaB find only Odense beneath them in the standings after three games of the new season. Lars Friis’ side opened with successive defeats to Viborg (2-1) and FC Copenhagen (1-3) before putting their first point on the board with last week’s goalless draw at home to promoted Horsens. The raw numbers suggest they should have won that game, but they didn’t, and are now 10 SL games without winning (D2 L8).

Key Stat: Aalborg would lose four of the last five Superliga away games (D1 L4), after previously recording five consecutive away victories in the competition.
