Aarhus preview: Hoping to get revenge for the Cup final

As we mentioned before, Aarhus lost to Silkeborg in the Danish Cup final and given how fresh that memory is, they'll certainly be hoping for revenge. That being said, this game doesn't mean much for Aarhus otherwise since they're bound to finish either fifth or sixth in the standings. Aarhus enter this game on a streak of five losses in a row in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Michael Akoto, Kevin Yakob, Tobias Mølgaard Henriksen, Mats Knoester, and Mikkel Duelund are injured ahead of this game, while Frederik Brandhof is suspended.

Predicted Lineup: Peackock-Farrell – Anker, Tingager, Knoester – Andersen, Knudsen, Madsen, Links – Bach, Anderson – Mortensen

Silkeborg preview: Looking to repeat their performance from last week

With three games left in the season in the Superliga, Silkeborg sit in the last place in the Championship Group, six points behind their next opponent Aarhus. That being said, Silkeborg won't really mind finishing last in the group given that they've already secured their place in the Europa League by winning the Cup, along with lifting a trophy this season.

When it comes to team news, Fredrik Carlsen and Alexander Busch are on the Silkeborg's injury list at this time.

Predicted Lineup: N. Larsen – Poulsen, Felix, Rodin, Sonne – Klynge, Brink, Tengstedt – Thordarson, M. Larsen – Adamsen

Player to watch: Patrick Mortensen

With 12 goals and four assists in the Danish Superliga this season, the experienced forward has been Aarhus' top scorer in the league and he's our player to watch in this match.

Will Mortensen score from first?

We saw Mortensen score the first goal of the match six times this season in the Danish Superliga. Can he do it once again on the biggest stage, in the Danish Cup final?
