Football Bet of the Day: Back Danish showpiece to sparkle

Danish football fans
We're heading to Denmark for a cup final

We're taking in a cup final this evening, and Kevin Hatchard expects goals in Denmark.


Silkeborg v AGF
Thursday 09 May, 16:00

Paris Saint-Germain's women rotated their squad more than we wanted them to yesterday, and they slipped to a shock 2-1 defeat at Reims. With a sense of annoyance, we'll head to Denmark, because Silkeborg are up against AGF in the Danish Cup final.

Neither team is in good form, but there's a sense that both sides have been focusing on this encounter, and both have been having to play the best teams in the Danish Superliga since the league had its split.

Both have had shock wins in this competition - Silkeborg knocked out mighty Copenhagen over two legs in the quarter-finals, while AGF (also known as Aarhus) disposed of Brondby at the same stage.

This is a huge deal for both of these clubs. AGF haven't won the cup since the mid-1990s, while Silkeborg haven't lifted the trophy since 2001. The temptation is therefore to think that this will be a cagey affair, but I'm not sure either team is capable of digging in, and I like the 1.991/1 on offer for Both Teams To Score.

BTTS has landed in 10 of AGF's last 16 games in all competitions, and they have leaked 15 goals in their last four matches alone. Silkeborg have seen the goals run dry of late (they have failed to score in four of their last five), but 13 of their last 25 competitive matches have seen both teams score. Three of the clubs' last four meetings have seen both teams find the net, including a 2-2 draw earlier this season.
