FC København visited Brøndby on Sunday afternoon.
Brøndby showed good form right from the start, but it was FC København’s Viktor Claesson who scored first, literally using his head to put the guests ahead after 18 minutes of play on a cross from Elias Jelert.
FCK withdrew on the field, but even though Brøndby had more space, they failed to score.
Shortly before halftime, FCK’s Mohamed Daramy had to leave the field due to an injury.
After the break, FCK continued to stay on their own half of the field.
Just over 10 minutes into the second half, Peter Ankersen brought down Mathias Damm Kvistgaard, resulting in a penalty for Brøndby. Ohikhuaeme Anthony Omoijuanfo kicked the ball into the net, thus equalizing the score at 1-1, and Brøndby Stadium began to boil.
This gave renewed energy to the home team and the guests were under pressure.
But in the 73rd minute, Carl Henrik Jordan Larsson put FCK back in the lead at 1-2.
A hard tackle by Daniel Wass on Elias Jelert resulted in the referee pulling out the red card and sending the Brøndby player off.
The expulsion had a significant impact on Brøndby’s play, and shortly after, FC Copenhagen extended their lead when Christian Nikolaj Sørensen sent the ball into the Brøndby goal, making the final score 1-3.
