FC Copenhagen vs Brondby Prediction & Betting tips
The championship question has already been answered in the Danish Superleague, four rounds before the end of the season, FC Midtjylland is 17 points ahead of the dethroned champion from Copenhagen. FCK has the best chance of winning the runner-up championship, but caution is advised after the recent performance. The city derby is on the program this weekend – FC Copenhagen welcomes Brondby.
A look at the current Superliga table shows four points ahead of Copenhagen in fourth place. However, Copenhagen has lost the last three league games and is in free fall. Nevertheless, the best bookmakers regard the home side as a surprisingly clear favorite. The game starts on Sunday afternoon at 17:00 p.m.
Already in the basic round it was indicated that the team of ex-Cologne coach Staale Solbakken did not realize the successful title defense. The performances of FC Midtjylland were too constant for this and at FC Copenhagen the higher burden of the Europa League was often noticeable. Again and again the Solbakken team left unnecessary points and was always in the role of hunter.
Since in Denmark, unlike Austria, the points are not shared after the basic round, the Solbakken team started the championship round nine points behind. In the meantime, six games have been completed and FC Copenhagen only has a meager five points on the plus side. The Solbakken team still scored in the first three games, but most recently they had three defeats in a row. In both top games against Midtjylland, the dethroned champion was the loser.
In addition to the recent three defeats in the championship round, there are six more bankruptcies in the basic round of the Superleague. Copenhagen conceded no less than seven of these nine defeats abroad, but the table runners-up have an extremely positive record in front of their home crowd. The home strength is undoubtedly an argument that speaks on Sunday between FC Copenhagen and Brondby for the prediction of the home side.
A good option could also be the tip over 2.5 over between FC Copenhagen and Brondby. In eleven of the 15 previous home games in the 2019/20 season, this tip was the right decision. Brondby also guarantees goals abroad as a rule (nine of 16 games ended with at least three goals).
The prospects for spring 2020 for head coach Niels Frederiksen’s team after the January transfer window were by no means positive. With Kamil Wilczek (18 games, 17 goals) and ex-Leipzig Dominik Kaiser (eight goals), the two top scorers turned their backs on the club.
Mikael Uhre takes a big part of the fact that Brondby has the best chances to qualify again for Europe in fourth place. The 25-year-old Danish attacker could not really convince in the basic round, with 14 missions only a single hit. In the long forced break, the attacker apparently opened the button.
In the six previous games in the championship round, he netted four times, making him the best scorer in the championship round. There are also two assists. Uhre was directly involved in six of the seven goals in the championship round.
Brondby started the championship round of the Danish Superleague with three division of points before two of the last three games were victorious. The Frederiksen team celebrated both victories against FC Nordsjaelland. Bröndby won 4-0 on Thursday evening. The club’s only defeat was in the away game at Aalborg.
However, nine points from six games means that Brondby has been able to defend fourth place so far. Four laps before the end of the championship, fourth place will represent the maximum of feelings. The gap to third place is already six points, the fifth in the table Aalborg has four points less on the credit side.
