Brondby is hosting FC Nordsjaelland at Brondby Stadium in round 6 of the Danish Superliga Championship Round.
Brondby has been playing hot and cold during this Championship Round of the Superliga and they have 1 win, 1 loss, and 3 draws during this stretch. Brondby has scored only 3 goals in their last 5 games, while they conceded also 3 goals. Brondby is in 4th place in the standings with 48 points, but they could still go down is they don’t win another game or two. In their last Championship Round game against Aalborg on the road, Brondby has had 51% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 75% of the correct passes. Brondby wasn’t playing well in this game and they deservedly lost this match 2-0. Same as many teams this season, Brondby has scored solid 50 goals in 31 games this season, but their defense is one of the worse in the Championship Round with 40 conceded goals. Wilczek has scored high 17 goals for Brondby this season, while Kaiser added 8 goals. Hedlund has 10 assists. Mensah is the only injured player for Brondby, and he should be back on the field next week. Brondby is 9 points away from the Europa League, but they don’t have the quality to get there, and I’m afraid they will need to wait another season to get back to the European competition.
Nordsjaelland has won only 1 of their last 6 games in the Championship Round alongside 3 losses and 1 draw. With 54 scored goals this season, Nordsjaelland is the best offensive team in Superliga, but not even that was enough for them to cover for their terrible form this season. Nordsjaelland has conceded 41 goals so far this season. In their most recent Championship Round game against Midtjylland at home, Nordsjaelland has had more possession, 65%, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 80% of the correct passes. This was a rough game with a lot of fouls on both sides, but Nordsjaelland has conceded a goal in 49th minute from the only shot on goal and has lost this match 0-1. Kudus and Damsgaard have each scored 11 goals for Nordsjaelland this season, while Atanga added 7 goals. Mikkel Rygaard has 6 assists. There are no injuries in Nordsjaelland, but Hansen is suspended because of the yellow cards. Nordsjaelland is in 5th place of the Championship Round standings, and whether they go spot up or down, it’s all the same to them because they don’t have a chance at reaching that Europa League spot, not point-wise, nor form-wise. Of all the teams in the Championship Round, Nordsjaelland has been the most inconsistent and their defense has been terrible.
When playing at home, Brondby hasn’t lost to Nordsjaelland in their last 5 games, and Brondby hasn’t lost any of their last 5 home games overall. Brondby is a slight favorite here, and they were dominant at home, and for that reason, I will side with Brondby in this game.
