Arch-rivals FC Copenhagen with the victory over the current champion Midtjylland in the middle of the week gave a “gift” to Brondby, who after the victory against Aarhus with player less go ahead in the title fight with one point over the Midtjylland. Niels Fredericksen’s team has a huge chance to lift the trophy after 16 years with a possible victory against Nordsjaelland. Today second scorer Lindstrom (29/10) and midfielder Frendrup (31/0) are suspended, while midfielder Byur (21/0) is doubtful.
Apart from occupying 5th place, Nordsjaelland had no other goal in the last round. They are the worst away team in this group and out of the squad are defenders Woledzi (10/1 suspended), Hansen (15/0), and midfielder Diomande (11/2).
Motivation is clearly on the home side, who won the last 7 mutual matches at Brøndby Stadion, and 6 of them were with more than two goals difference.
