Teams look for their first win of the season when they lock horns on Monday night.
Silkeborg are getting back to home turf after suffering back-to-back away defeats. They lost to Lyngby 2-1 on matchday 1 and 2-0 to Midtjylland last Sunday.
AGF Aarhus remained at home for the first two match-weeks. They were defeated by Horsens 1-2 in the season opener, before getting back to winning ways against the newly promoted Hobro by a comfortable 2-0 margin.
Both teams survived relegation last season through play-offs rounds. Silkeborg finished 9th in the regular season last season and finished top of their relegation pool. Meantime, AGF survived knock-out scares against Esbjerg and Viborg after failing to make through their group.
Silkeborg vs Aarhus: Head-to-head
The matches between these two are often too tight to call and presents an inconsistent trend over the years. Silkeborg are the better side in recent seasons after picking 3 wins and 2 draws from six games, losing only once.
At home, Silkeborg share 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses with Aarhus from the last 7 meetings. Overall, they had lost just 6 of the 23 home matches against AGF, raking up 18 wins and 3 draws in the process.
Silkeborg vs Aarhus: Prediction
This will be another cagey affair with both teams having plenty of vulnerabilities in all departments of play. However, Silkeborg emerge as slim favourites to win this one with Aarhus being one of the traditionally poor away sides in the league.
