Midtjylland preview: Still in play for the title

Ahead of the final round of the Superliga season, Midtjylland share the top spot with Brondby. However, they are behind by seven goal on goal difference, so in addition to them beating Silkeborg, they will likely need Brondby to slip against Aarhus to win the title. Midtjylland enter this match on a four-game unbeaten run.

Meanwhile, Marrony and Alhaji Kamara are on Midtjylland's injury list at this time.

Silkeborg preview: Hoping to end the season with a bang

After losing in the last round to Brondby, Silkeborg are now certain to finish the Superliga season in the last place in the Championship Group. Given that they've only won twice in the last 20 league games, that's hardly a shock. Still, their fan will be very happy with this season overall since Silkeborg have won the Danish Cup and secured a place in the Europa League for next season.

When it comes to team news, Alexander Busch and Fredrik Carlsen are out with injuries at the moment.

Predicted Lineup: N. Larsen – Sonne, Rodin, Felix, Poulsen – Mattsson, Brink, M. Larsen – McCowatt, Lind, Thordarson

Can Cho score from the spot again?

Five of the 12 goals Cho netted in the Superliga so far were scored from penalties. If Silkeborg give him a chance, he might make them regret it.
