Silkeborg hope to sell some tickets for this game even though the season has been rough so far with 15 points and a 14th position in the Superliga table. Visiting Nordsjælland holds 5th place with 38 pts.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

For Silkeborg relegation is already certain this season. Only divine intervention and/or time travel can save them and neither look likely. Nordsjælland are still fighting for top positions and their benefits.

Nordsjælland form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team, who have the most scored goals (46) in Superliga, on their Superliga travels is 4 wins, 2 draws and 6 defeats. It could be a hat trick of victories away for Nordsjælland, as they have won on their previous two travels.

There were no winners in Nordsjælland's previous match, a Superliga home game that ended 2-2 vs Brøndby (placed 4th). Before that one, a nice away victory 2-1 at Esbjerg.

Nordsjælland has displayed an ability to score goals in away matches in the league this season, 22 goals from 12 games. The Nordsjælland manager F. Pedersen has some worries about the defense as 24 goals have been conceded in these travels.
