Our prediction for this Denmark Superliga match:
All eyes will be on Brondby Stadion when Brondby and Copenhagen, the two old rivals, face each other in the Superliga derby. Brondby are eager to book their place in the Europa League, but that is easier said than done as 5th-place Nordsjaelland are brimming down their neck. Niels Frederiksen’s troops failed to impress in back-to-back goalless draws with Midtjylland and Aarhus, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Sunday’s showdown.
Copenhagen, on the other hand, recorded a routine 2-0 win over Aalborg in their last league match. The capital club aim to put an extra pressure on league leaders Midtjylland, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Brondby, who do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Matchday 29. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Mohammed Daramy, who scored a brace against Aalborg, and he is likely to lead Copenhagen to yet another victory.
Highlighted Player (Nicklas Bendtner):
Over the years Nicklas Bendtner has established himself as one of the best Danish footballers. The 194-cm tall striker, who is very good in the air, started his senior career at Arsenal and he scored his first goal at the Emirates Stadium in a pre-season match against Paris Saint-Germain.
Nicklas Bendtner scored 24 goals in 108 appearances for Arsene Wenger’s troops in the English top flight and after ending his loan spells with the likes of Birmingham City, Sunderland and Juventus, he moved to Germany in the summer of 2014 and signed a three-year deal with Wolfsburg. Bendtner made his Bundesliga debut on August 30, coming as a substitute in a 2-2 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt. After spending two seasons at Wolfsburg, the Denmark international joined Championship side Nottingham Forest on September 7, 2016.
Nicklas Bendtner, though, made only 15 appearances in the English second tier for the Reds and it has to be noted that he scored two goals for the City Ground outfit in the 2016/2017 season. In March 2017 the Danish attacker signed a contract with Norwegian side Rosenborg for an undisclosed fee. Nicklas Bendtner represented Denmark at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and he score one goal for the Danes at the showpiece tournament in South Africa.
Highlighted Team (Copenhagen):
The most successful club in the history of Danish football FC Kopenhagen was founded in 1992, through the merger of 15-time Danish champions Kjobenhavns Boldklub and seven-time champions of Denmark Boldklubben 1903. Football Club Copenhagen play their matches at the Telia Parken, a venue that can host 38,000 spectators.
The Team of the City as Copenhagen is called in Denmark has won the Danish football championship eleven times, while it has also won the Danish Cup on seven occasions. The club forms great rivalry with Copenhagen’s suburban club Brondby IF with games between the two club attracting some of the biggest crowds in Danish football history in this so called New Firm derby.
Through its history F.C. Copenhagen have participated in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League, while their major European accomplishments have been achieved in the Royal League, with the Danish powerhouse winning two titles and coming as runners-up on one occasion.
