Copenhagen vs Viborg by Isaiah
Copenhagen is again looking like the strongest side in the country and only a miracle can stop them from winning yet another domestic title. After eighteen rounds played, the team is nine points ahead of second placed Brondby and even if the difference was less, there's no doubt that they would be huge favorites to win the title.
The team comes from a narrow 1:0 victory away from home against Lyngby, thanks to an only goal scored in eleventh minute via Toutouh. The game itself was quite a balanced one and home players also had their chances, but the overall impression is that the visiting side played as much as needed in order to obtain all three points and that they could have increased the tempo at any moment. In front of own fans, they have four consecutive victories and the team expects another, easy one. Striker Andreas Cornelius (14/6) is injured, same as forward Danny Amankwaa (5/0).
Viborg, on the other side, comes from a 2:2 draw at home against Sonderjyske last weekend, as they broke the run of six consecutive defeats in all competitions, but still remain without a single victory in last ten matches having just two draws in these games. No wonder that the team is just a point above rock bottom placed Esbjerg and needs to improve quickly before entering even bigger problems.
The game against Sonderjyske was quite a balanced one, with the guests taking the lead but the hosts replying soon in the first halftime, while the players of Viborg took the lead from a penalty kick in 90th but paid the price of lacking concentration in fourth and last minute of the additional time when the visitors leveled up. Scoring goals isn't one of their problems, but huge improvements are needed in their defensive lineup, since the team has already conceded thirty goals in eighteen matches. On the road they have four consecutive defeats and the team can't expect much more from this match either. Offensive midfielders/forwards Osama Akharraz (no performance so far) and Oliver Thychosen (7/2) are injured.
Copenhagen is several levels above their tonight's opponent and everything but their easy victory here would be huge surprise in my eyes. I definitely see chances of home team winning with two goals or more bigger than 50%.
