Silkeborg vs FC Copenhagen
Danish Superligaen
Date: 19 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: JYSK Park (Silkeborg).

Silkeborg host FC Copenhagen in one of the most exciting games of the first Superligaen Matchday after the winter break on Sunday afternoon at JYSK Park.

The two teams sit right next to each other in the third and fourth position of the league table respectively after the opening 17 rounds of the competition.

With just five games left to play until the end of the regular season, both outfits will be highly motivated to lock in their top-six finish and make it to the Championship Round in the postseason action.

FC Copenhagen climbed to the third place in the Superligaen standings by clinching three successive victories in November. They have overtaken their Sunday’s counterparts in the process as Silkeborg lost three of the last four league affairs.

The lack of defensive meticulousness has been the biggest issue for Silkeborg0s head coach Kent Nielsen.

Nielsen did not have many reasons to be satisfied with this segment in particular during the midseason exhibitions. Silkeborg allowed at least two goals in each of the previous three friendlies against Norrkoping, Bodo/Glimt, and Sogndal.

FC Copenhagen certainly have enough offensive firepower to exploit the obvious holes in their rivals’ defense.

They have done well in the recent Atlantic Cup games, beating Elfsborg and AIK and drawing to Viking in three matches of the Scandinavian exhibition tournament.

Silkeborg vs FC Copenhagen Head-to-head

  • The teams have two wins each in the previous four head to head encounters.
  • FC Copenhagen celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory over Silkeborg when they locked horns in the first part of the season in September last year in Danish capital.
  • Only two of the previous six head to head encounters between these outfits provided three or more goals.

Silkeborg vs FC Copenhagen Prediction

Silkeborg have been too easy to break down before the winter break and they do not seem to have fixed the defensive holes after the midseason friendlies either. The visitors went on the break with a run of three consecutive league wins.

We will back FC Copenhagen to win & Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the 3.20 odds, while you can alternatively back the visitors’ top scorer Victor Claesson to score anytime at the 2.87 odds.
