Lyngby vs FC Copenhagen Prediction & Betting tips
The ball has been rolling again in Denmark since last Thursday. There are still two games to be played in the regular season before the 14-team Superligaen is split. The top six clubs play the championship in a group with a second leg, while the bottom eight teams continue their personal playing time in two groups of four.
However, since the points from the main round in the mode introduced in 2016/2017 will be taken away, we are looking forward to important and exciting matches as part of the 25th matchday. Among other things, there is a derby Lyngby against FC Copenhagen in the capital. According to the odds of the best bookmakers, guests are clearly favored. A 1.66 in the top at the betting provider Bet365 tested by the betting base implies a probability of occurrence of 59%.
The advantages for the reigning Danish title holder are obvious. The FCK undoubtedly has more individual quality and is also far ahead of the city rivals in the classification. Nevertheless, the whites and blues are anything but satisfied with the national season so far, as they are already 12 points behind leaders Midtjylland and the title defense mission seems to be difficult to achieve at the current time.
It is therefore all the more important for the Stolbakken team to successfully complete the task of the promoted team. However, because the upcoming opponent from the north of the capital has managed to win eight of the previous twelve home games, we give Lyngby and FC Copenhagen a tip that the favorite will win significantly. In view of the lack of home fans, at least a narrow success for the Europa League round of 16 should be within the realm of possibility.
The Lyngby Boldklub af 1921 still has a long and successful history. Not only that the team from the north of Copenhagen won the national championship twice in the 80s / 90s and won the cup three times; the blue-whites, with four players in the Danish European Championship squad in 1992, also had a significant share in the fact that “Danish Dynamite” could sensationally bring the title to Scandinavia.
Apart from that, the club founded in 1921 has always been a springboard for promising talent in recent years and decades. Actors such as Yussuf Poulsen, Emre Mor, Dennis Rommedahl or Niclas Jensen were once under contract in Lyngby before moving to the top international leagues in Europe.
It is all the more astonishing that the blue-whites have appeared in the recent past as an “elevator team”. It was only in the past season that the relegation made it possible to get back up again. There are already many indications that the team of coach Christian Nielsen will be represented in 2020/21 first-class, although the somewhat getting used to mode in Denmark does not yet allow final planning certainty.
The newcomer is currently in a very decent eighth place. The lead to eleventh place, which would lead Lyngby to slip into the second of the two “relegation groups”, is at least five points. However, the move towards the championship round seems to have already left with six points behind and two remaining season games and a relatively poor goal difference (-11).
The fact that the Nielsen team conceded significantly more goals in the current season (39) than scored goals (28) is particularly due to the weakness away. The capital club got 25 of the 31 points in front of its own fans. With an impressive record of eight wins, a draw and three bankruptcies, the promoted player is one of the best home teams in the league. It is all the more difficult for them to switch to the ghost games, which on Monday evening between Lyngby and FC Copenhagen make a forecast towards the guests much more likely.
In terms of personnel, the 46-year-old coach Nielsen can draw on almost everything. The break was used to get in shape or to bring the convalescents back to the team. The dress rehearsal was lost 1-2 in a friendly against Brondby IF. Speaking of Brondby IF: The best scorer of the blue and white is Rezan Corlu (five goals, six assists) and is currently on loan from the fifth in the table.
For FC Copenhagen, year after year, it’s all about winning the title on the Danish top floor. If this succeeds three times in the past four seasons, 2019/2020 threatens the temporary loss of national supremacy. Two game days before the end of the regular season, after which the championship round comprising a total of ten games will be held, the deficit of the white and blue is already twelve points behind the leaders Midtjylland.
Although the FCK has two more chances to catch up points in a direct duel against the eternal rival, it currently does not look as if the team of coach Stale Solbakken can successfully complete the title defense mission. The main reason for this is undoubtedly the disappointing balance abroad.
The team, which surprisingly knocked Celtic Glasgow out of the competition in the sixteenth final in the Europa League and now faces Basaksehir in the second round (first leg: 0: 1), conceded five of the six defeats this season. The best home team of the Superligaen thus collected 15 points less in the twelve games in the distance than industry leader Midtjylland.
This is one of the reasons why on Monday between Lyngby and FC Copenhagen odds close to 1.70 and not below 1.50 are offered. However, what is neglected in this consideration of the serious bookmakers in Germany is the fact that the restart in Denmark is of course also without spectators. As has already been seen in Germany, the number of away wins and the success of teams that simply have more to offer in terms of quality is increasing.
In terms of personnel, the year 2020 has so far not been entirely without noise. Above all, the departure of the best striker Pieros Sotiriou, who moved to Kazakhstan for FC Astana for around two million euros, still gives the fans a questioning look today. There is no shortage of alternatives, especially since the only 18-year-old talented talent Mohammed Daramy, who was already on the list at almost all top European clubs, is a designated successor in the starting blocks.
