Lyngby finished the last season in the 3rd position after the memorable five-game winning streak. The hosts haven’t engaged in any friendly games as they took on Bangor City in the first round of UEFA Europa League qualification. After the disappointing 1-0 victory in Denmark, they left a better impression in Wales with the 0-3 triumph.
Lyngby faced Slovan in the first leg of Europa League qualifying on Thursday. They grabbed the 0-1 victory in Bratislava, but the tie is far from decided.
The visitors concluded 2016/17 season in the Relegation Group. This season, Silkeborg will shoot for the top six among the huge Danish competition.
Silkeborg’s preseason wasn’t ideal. In the first friendly match, they suffered the 1-2 defeat inflicted by Viborg. In the second duel, they managed to beat Skive with 2-1, only to endure another defeat by Aarhus in their last prep game.
