Lyngby BK is hosting FC Copenhagen at Lyngby Stadium in round 25 of the Danish Superligaen.
Lyngby is a decent Superligaen team that still has a good shot at getting to the spot that will take them to the Championship Round of the Superligaen. With 31 points, Lyngby is in 8th place in the standings, just two spots and 6 points away from the Championship round. Lyngby has lost 3 of their last 4 games in Superligaen while conceding 6 goals in those 4 games and scoring only 2 goals. Over the last two weeks, since the teams were allowed to start practicing and playing games, Lyngby has played two friendly matches against Brondby and has won one game and lost the other one. In their last match in the Superligaen against Aalborg 2 months ago, Lyngby was solid with 51% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and 81% of the correct passes. Despite having a decent match, Lyngby didn’t play good defense and has lost this game 3-0. Lyngby has scored only 28 goals so far this season and 6 of those were scored by Gyrkjaer, while Corlu added 5 goals and 6 assists. Lyngby’s chances to get into the Championship round will depend on how they will restart the season, and Lyngby’s job is not easy as they are playing against one of the best teams in Denmark.
Copenhagen is one of the best teams in Denmark, but they lack focus this season and that is the only reason why Copenhagen is so far from the first place. With 50 points, 41 scored goals, and 27 conceded goals, Copenhagen is in second place in the standings, 12 points behind Midtjylland. In their last match in the Superligaen against Horsens back at the beginning of March, Copenhagen was the better team with 63% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 85% of accurate passes. Copenhagen might have been the better team here, but they were not able to score a goal, and Copenhagen has lost this game 0-1. Copenhagen is still playing in the Europa League where they faced Turkish Basaksehir FK in the first round of the knockouts. Copenhagen has lost the first leg 1-0, while the second leg was postponed because of the Coronavirus. Over the last 2 weeks, Copenhagen has played 2 friendly games and has won one, while the other one ended in a draw. Sotiriou has scored 9 goals for Copenhagen this season, while N’Doye added 8 goals. Viktor Fischer added 8 assists. There is no doubt that Copenhagen will go to the Championship round, but if they want to catch up to Midtjylland, Copenhagen must improve their defense and get more focused on both ends.
Lyngby has not lost their last two home games against Copenhagen. In the last 6 games between Lyngby and Copenhagen, we saw at least 2 goals, while in 5 of those 6 we saw 3 or more goals. We know that Copenhagen is safe and will go to the Championship round, while Lyngby is only 6 points away, which means Lyngby needs this win more, but I can’t just write off one of the best team in Denmark in Copenhagen. I think I will stick with goals here.
