Copenhagen vs Brondby by Meese

Copenhagen is far away from their good and reliable form, probably being influenced with their European duties a bit. In the most recent game, they took just a point away from home against Horsens in a 1:1 draw. The game itself was pretty much equal one, however major fact happened in 38th minute when forward Verbic got red carded and the visitors stood playing with a man less.

Playing with ten men, they were unable to build up their own game later on, conceding goal in 63rd minute via Okosun, but improved and reached the equalizer in 77th minute via Bengtsson in a game that they would probably win in case they played all ninety minutes with eleven guys. The team is now only at fifth position having eight points less than leaders from Brondby and this match is now completely must win one in order to stay in the title race. During the midweek, they won 3:0 at home over Zlin in Europa League and kept the first position together with Sheriff with six points now before last two rounds of the group stage having more than decent chance to progress further.

Defender Erik Johansson (5/0) is injured since middle of August, while striker Federico Santander (5/2) also remains sidelined for months already. Participation of defender Nicolai Boilesen (11/0), midfielder Jan Gregus (11/0) and other midfielder, Nikolaj Thomsen (7/0) is doubtful here, but they have some time to get ready and involed into the match.

Brondby is now really doing fine, as the side has no defeat in last nine official matches, but also are coming from their fifth consecutive victory in Superliga, as the side won over Randers 3:1 at home last Monday evening. Even though the game was very interesting and Randers had their fair amount of chances, there was nothing questionable in the victory of the home team.

An own goal brought them into the lead in fifteenth minute, with the visitors leveling up in 30th via Bager, but the hosts upped the tempo in overall very open second halftime and reached the victory thanks to goals from Halimi in 59th and 90th minute. They now lead the table with a point more than followers from Midtjylland and Nordsjaelland knowing that a point here would represent a positive outcome for them since they have just a mediocre 2-2-2 record away from own fans.

Defender Anthony Jung (7/0) is suspended after getting a red card two matches ago away to Helsingor.

There's no doubt that Copenhagen has a better roster and with the help of their own fans, they should be able to show close to their full potential. I have no doubts that they are better individually and that they will be up to the task in a derby, now when it matters the most they should be able to answer properly with tradition also being strongly with them.

    Good preview, however I have to disagree with the last part of it. It’s definitely questionable if the FC Copenhagen roster is better than the Brøndby one, but even if it was so, I think you underestimate the importance of Verbic being out. He has had his best season at the club this year (his third) and is by far the most creative player they have. Without him, they are much less innovative. They can hope that Rasmus Falk and Youssef Toutouh step up to previous levels (Toutouh is improving game by game) if they are to win this game. The first meeting between the two sides this season at Brøndby was the most one sided game in a long time with Brøndby being the best team by far on the pitch. Brøndby is, simply put, a better team right now (the league table doesn’t lie), but the result is far from given. Few goals can be expected.
