Silkeborg vs Anderlecht
Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 3 November 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Jysk Park.
Both Silkeborg and Anderlecht are in the running for a second-place finish in Group B in the Europa Conference League. The two squads are separated by just one point, and as such this final group-stage fixture holds a lot of weight.
Whoever manages to win this fixture will make it to the next round, and it seems like a perfect recipe for a high-scoring affair.
Silkeborg have the confidence of scoring the most number of goals in the group – even more than the toppers, who have a perfect winning record.
It is also to be noted that they recorded a 5-0 win in their latest home appearance in the Conference League. And now with a ticket to the knockouts on stake, count on the team to deliver a compelling performance.
Meanwhile, Anderlecht have a perfect unbeaten record in the group, barring their fixtures against the toppers. Moreover, they have the added confidence of having recorded a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture against this opponent at home, back in the early stage of the competition.
Both these teams are scoring goals in good numbers lately, but at the same time they are letting in goals in huge numbers too.
By the looks of things, anticipate a goal-fest this Thursday in this crucial match-up.

Silkeborg vs Anderlecht Prediction & Analysis
Silkeborg have just four clean sheets to their name in the past 16 fixtures, and all along they scored goals in huge numbers. And particularly at home they took part in some major goal-fests lately. In fact, their past five clashes at home had 22 goals combined.
On the other hand, while Anderlecht scored six goals from their past two matches, they let in two or more goals in their previous four fixtures in a row. It is also of importance that each of their former four away matches had three or more goals.
Considering these observations, expect a high-scoring match-up this Thursday between the two teams.
