Niklas Helenius is a prolific striker who scored 18 goals in 30 games last season.

He’s a full Denmark international with two caps and has a total of 44 goals in 87 games for the club.

The 31-year-old is their biggest threat by a long way.

How are Silkeborg doing this season?

They’ve had a reasonable start to the campaign and are third in the league.

They have won five of their nine games, drawing one, and losing two.

Silkeborg also come into the game in decent form, after beating AGF 1-0 at the weekend, but they lost to Anderlecht last week in their opening Europa Conference League game.
