In that period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 9. Historical results aside, it remains to be seen if such a trend will be replicated in this game.

Team News: FC Copenhagen
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the FC Copenhagen manager Ståle Solbakken to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Nicolaj Thomsen (Shoulder fracture) is sidelined.
Team News: Brøndby IF
Due to a fully healthy squad available for selection, Brøndby IF manager Niels Fredriksen doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this clash.
We feel that Brøndby IF will have their work cut out to put one past this FC Copenhagen side who we think will do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
That’s why our selection here is for a 1-0 victory for FC Copenhagen when the full-time whistle blows.
Little in this one.
