Brondby was really close to walking away with something away to Midtjylland last Monday and the team even had the lead twice in the first halftime. However, they simply couldn’t hold onto it till the end. They just needed bit more stability at the back. The side now stays out of the play-off positions and are close to a must-win situation when they welcome their biggest rivals.
Copenhagen did well to get a home victory over Aarhus last weekend, even though the game didn’t start as planned for them. They were back in the scoreline from the second minute, but also got leveled up to 2:2 in the 55th minute, to up the tempo and reach the victory with two more goals for the final 4:2. They now share the first position together with Midtjylland and surely a three-pointer is their only target here.
Midfielder Fisker (8/0) is injured, next to long-term absentee striker Mensah. Central back Luftner (1/0) remains sidelined for the guests, as well as striker Fischer (13/7).
Brondby isn’t in the best possible form, but even so, they are always able to hurt the opponents in front of own fans. Copenhagen seems to have improved recently in form and do remain a slight favorite in this one. However, it’s not a game where we can trust any of the sides blindly. An open game, just like we usually see from these two is widely expected, however.
