Silkeborg vs Hobro
Denmark – Superleague
Date: Friday, 2 August 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Jysk Park (Silkeborg).
Despite earning promotion to the first division as the table-toppers in the second tier, Silkeborg have failed to live up to their expectations so far and are on a three-match losing streak.
The last clash for the hosts saw them succumb to a disappointing 3-1 loss to Aalborg on the road. The squad are currently at the bottom of the table, with all other sides salvaging at least a point from all of their previous clashes.
Hobro have been sharing the spoils in their previous three fixtures. Their most recent clash against Randers at home saw them feature in a four-goal thriller, which finished 2-2 at the last blast of the whistle.
Considering that they are unbeaten in their last three games, Hobro will be the more optimistic of the two sides, in picking up the win, as they travel to the Jysk Park this week to take on the struggling Silkeborg side.

Silkeborg vs Hobro Prediction
The hosts have stumbled in all of their games so far, and have admitted defeat by a two-goal margin or more in the process. They have also found the back of the net just once and have been at the receiving end of nine goals as well.
Home advantage has not worked its charm for Silkeborg this season as they are yet to get their names on the scoresheet here, let alone pick up the win.
Hobro have scored as many as they have conceded in their respective games building up to the tie this week. Considering that they have also picked up the win in two of their previous three fixtures at this venue, the visitors are sizing up as the ones to bag all three points on Friday.
Three of Hobro’s last four goals have come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game, so expect them to get their names on the scoresheet after the restart without fail.
