Brøndby. Brøndby’s sluggish start to the season continues, and on Friday night the champions again lost an important step to the competitors.

In the home match against the promotions from Silkeborg, it was only 1-1, and Brøndby has thus only won one of the season’s first eight matches in the 3F Superligaen.

Brøndby dominated on the ball for large periods, but had problems throughout the match with finding offensive solutions and switching over to open goal chances.

Silkeborg proved to be fine from a lower starting point and quick changes and can be happy to have picked up an honorable 11 points in the first eight games, which is enough for a preliminary sixth place.

Brøndby is currently number seven with eight points and thus already has ten points up to the top team from FC Midtjylland.

Against Silkeborg, the blue and yellows took the initiative from the start and dominated with great movement, fast ball movement and good game turns.

At the same time, Brøndby seemed superior in the duels, so Silkeborg had problems with the game, but slowly the promotions found the melody and used it a lot of space on the sides of the hosts’ new 4-4-2 system.

Silkeborg punished a play-up error after 20 minutes, when midfielder Mark Brink slipped through and poked the visitors at 1-0.

Suddenly Silkeborg was far more on the ball than in the beginning and created several good opportunities, but Brøndby was also quite approachable at the other end.

First, the home team hit the crossbar in the 36th minute, before Simon Hedlund two minutes later caught Silkeborg goalkeeper Nicolai Larsen in the middle and marked his match number 100 for Brøndby with the goal to 1-1.

Brøndby appealed in vain for a penalty kick when the ball hit a Silkeborg arm a handful of minutes after the break.

Here, Brøndby generally pressed on and was mostly in possession of the ball, while Silkeborg were close to several good conversions and could easily have come in front again.

There were plenty of chances at both ends, but the endings lacked quality time and time again, so it ended without a winner at Brøndby Stadion, who acknowledged with a small pipe concert at the final whistle.
