On Sunday, the derby between Brøndby and FC Copenhagen will be played for the second time this season without away fans on the stands. This time it is at Brøndby Stadium.

FCK won the rival showdown in their own den with 2-0, where Brøndby fans were denied access by the Divisional Association. Now it’s Brøndby’s turn to have the whole stadium’s support, and that can make a big difference, says Henrik Heggheim.

The 21-year-old Brøndby defender has no doubt that this is a great advantage for the home team.

»It is clear that the sound from the Brøndby fans was missed in the derby (in the Park, ed.). Now it is the other way around on Sunday, where there are only Brøndby fans, and we must try to take advantage of that, “he says to bold.dk.

In February, the Divisional Association announced that, at the request of the police, they would run the next two Copenhagen derbies without fans of the away team on the stands.

It was an initiative to put an end to the violence, especially before and after the fighting between fan groups.

Fans of both teams have criticized the initiative in clear terms. FCK made a mood boycott in a large part of the first half of the derby in the Park, and Brøndby’s biggest fan groups have proclaimed that they will do the same on Sunday.

Despite the mood boycott in part of the first half, it was noticeable that Brøndby’s fans were missing in the Park, says Henrik Heggheim.

He sat on the bench throughout the match, and from here it was not difficult for him to feel the one-sided mood.

“It’s very unusual for one. We are used to having the fans with us, so it’s a strange feeling not to have them. And I think you could especially feel it because it was in the derby match, “he says.

Brøndby also needs massive support. The club is in a historically bad shoal that has reached seven league defeats in a row.

FCK leads the league with three points down to FC Midtjylland with four rounds again. A Brøndby victory over FCK can thus open the gold match wide open, if FCM also beats AaB out.

The match between Brøndby and FCK kicks off at 16.
