The title may be beyond both but the Copenhagen derby is still one not to be missed. Brondby will be hoping to get one of their arch rivals when they clash on Sunday.

Brondby Preview – Can Brondby take derby spoils and remain in command of Europa League spot?

A title challenge was always likely to be a big ask for Brondby but there will be a sense of disappointment that they are only fourth and a full 25 points behind leaders Midtjylland. They’re even seven points adrift of AGF in third and 16 inferior to their rivals and opponents on Sunday. It’s not been the season that Niels Frederiksen would have been hoping for in his first year in charge.

The aim for Brondby is now to clinch the Europa League playoff spot which is by no means a certainty with a two point difference between themselves and Nordsjaelland.

It’s been a fairly mundane return for Brondby. Their four games since the break have seen them collect five points from 12 with their last two matches (since the league split) ending in goalless draws. The point gained away at the leaders will feel much more rewarding than the draw at home to AGF.

Their form at home has been generally pretty good with nine wins and two draws from their 15 played so far.

Copenhagen Preview – Will Copenhagen leave with three points to keep faint title hopes alive?

There may be eight games left to play but it does look a very tall order for Copenhagen to turn things around and win the title. They currently sit nine points behind and have been playing catch-up all season in truth. It has been a really positive return to football, however, taking 10 points from their four matches thus far.

Head coach Stale Solbakken will point to the fact that his team have still to play Midtjylland twice and those games can make a significant difference – which is true – but they have taken just one point from two games against that opponent so far this season. And where thumped 4-1 away from home.

It’s going to have to be a virtually flawless end to the season for Copenhagen to have any chance of winning the title and that includes winning here. It’s been their away form which has badly let them down, though. They have won just three of their last 10 games on the road in the Danish Superliga.

The surprising thing about Copenhagen’s season is they have scored six more goals than the leaders but conceded 16 more at the same time. It’s not records you would normally associated with a Solbakken team.

Brondby vs Copenhagen Betting Advice

This remains the biggest game in Danish football and its unfortunate it will be played without any supporters. It’s usually a sea of colour and a fixture filled with passion. Sunday’s match is the third league meeting of the season between the clubs and the previous two has went with home advantage.

Copenhagen have won on two of their last four visits, however, and they simply have to pick up three points on this occasion. Also, the last six games have produced 20 goals so it could well be another entertaining game.

Key Facts – Brondby vs Copenhagen Betting Tip

    • Brondby have work to do to secure a Europa League playoff spot having drawn their previous to games
    • Copenhagen have taken 10 points from their last four games but remain nine points behind the leaders
    • This is the third meeting of the season so far with the two previous going with home advantage

Goals are likely in this one with both teams much better going forward than they are in defence. Over 2.5 goals has been a winner in five of the lasrt six meetings and I’m backing this one to go the same way.
