FC Copenhagen vs Brondby IF
Competition: Danish Superligaen
Date: 19th February 2017
Kick-off: 13:30 CET
First plays second at Parken with FC Copenhagen hosting Brondby IF in Sunday’s Danish Superligaen clash. Copenhagen are big favourites to come out on top and extend their lead at the summit, but their opponents won’t be slouches given they are only one place below the leaders in the table. The two sides played out a stalemate in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, but home advantage could be telling this time round.
Home side Copenhagen are currently top of the Danish Superligaen with 53 points from 21 games this season, boasting nine consecutive wins ahead of the visit of Brondby. Yet to lose a game this campaign, Copenhagen also have a flawless home record that will strike fear into Brondby with nine wins and a draw from their 10 games at Parken, and they’ll fancy their chances of making it ten victories at home.
Visitors Brondby are second in the division with 42 points, coming off the back of three wins and a draw from their last four games. However, the away side haven’t been so convincing on the road in recent weeks, failing to win four of their last six matches on their travels, and the runners-up may come unstuck today as a result. Brondby are a good side and earned a point the last time the two sides met, but as the travelling team they may be overrun by a rampant Copenhagen who can’t stop winning.
