Anderlecht will face Silkeborg on Thursday

Silkeborg will host Anderlecht at the Jysk Park in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.

The fixture is a direct battle for second spot in Group B, with West Ham having already secured progression as group winners. The second spot is up for grabs and the two sides will square off to qualify for the playoffs next year.

Silkeborg currently hold the advantage and sit in second spot with six points garnered from five matches. The Danes need a point to extend their continental campaign into next year.

Anderlecht occupy third spot with five points to their name and only a win would be enough for the Brussels outfit.

The Purple and White come into the game on the back of a comfortable 4-2 home win over Eupen in the Belgian Jupiler League on Sunday. Lior Refaelov's brace inspired the win for his side.

Silkeborg fell to a 2-1 defeat to Viborg in the Danish Superliga. They went ahead in the first half through Tonni Adamsen but a second-half fightback from the visitors saw them claim all three points.

Both sides have struggled for consistency in recent weeks, having each posted just one win in their last six matches in all competitions.

Another thing the two sides have in common is high-scoring games, with goals typically flowing at both ends of the field when Anderlecht and Silkeborg take to the field.

The home side hold the advantage in the tie and are likely to priortize getting a draw rather than going all out for victory. Anderlecht are the more historic team and despite their inconsistencies, we are backing the visitors to do enough to claim a narrow win.
