Silkeborg have been without a win since October until they ended their streak of 14 games without a victory in the last round when they beat Midtjylland. Still, Silkeborg are bound to finish last in the Championship Group standings, but they will get a chance to win a trophy and secure a place in Europe for next season next week, when they meet Aarhus in the Danish Cup final.

Meanwhile, Pelle Mattsson is suspended at the moment, while Fredrik Carlsen and Alexander Busch are on the team's injury list at this time.

Copenhagen preview: Closing the gap in the title race

After two wins and a draw in the last three games in the league, Copenhagen have closed the gap behind Brondby, who are currently four points ahead. Also, Copenhagen have overtaken Midtjylland in the standings, so they are now second, but four teams are all within four points of each other at the top, with five games left in the season. So, we're in for a very exciting finish.

Magnus Mattsson, Lukas Lerager, Peter Ankersen, Khouma Babacar, Nicolai Boilesen, Theo Sander, David Khocholava, and the teen sensation Roony Bardghji are all out with injuries right now, while Rasmus Falk Jensen is suspended.

Predicted Lineup: Grabara – Jelert, Vavro, Diks, Sorensen – Goncalves, Clem, Claesson, Lerager, Falk, Elyounoussi – Achouri, Cornelius, Elyounoussi

Player to watch: Mohamed Elyounoussi

With six goals and four assists in the Superliga this season, Elyounoussi has been one of the most consistent contributors on the offensive end for Copenhagen.

Elyounoussi to score in the second half?

Four of the six goals scored by Elyounoussi in the Superliga this season came in the second halves of respective games. With that in mind, will we see the same in this match?
