HJK vs Silkeborg Prediction & Betting tips
100% Scandinavian confrontation on Thursday evening from 17:00, in the first leg of the Europa League play-off, for group qualification, where HJK from Finland and Silkeborg from Denmark will face each other. Tonight’s match is a first for both teams, and this is because the team from Denmark does not have many participations in European cups. The team that prevails in this double leg will qualify for the Europa League groups, while the losing team will qualify for the Europa Conference League groups.
HJK has already played six games in the European cups this season, starting from the 1st preliminary round of the UEFA Champions League, where they beat RFS after 1-0 at home in the round and 2-2 in the second leg away from home. In the 2nd preliminary round of the Champions League, HJK was eliminated by Plzen who won both matches, 2-1 and 5-0. From the UEFA Champions League, HJK reached the 3rd preliminary round of the Europa League, where they passed Maribor from Slovenia with two victories, 2-0 and 1-0.
On the other hand, Silkeborg returns to European cups after a 21-year break, the last participation being in the 2001-2002 season, when the current Europa League competition was called the Uefa Cup. In that season, Silkeborg was eliminated from the first round by the Spanish team Zaragoza who won both matches 3-0 in the home round and 2-1 in the return leg in Denmark. Thanks to the 3rd place achieved in the championship last season, Silkeborg qualified directly for the Europa League play-off.
