The Copenhagen Post reports that after managing a 1-1 draw with FC Moscow, FC Copenhagen emerged as the only Danish football club to make it through to the group stages of the UEFA Cup. The first leg of this matchup was a real thriller, with victory against FC Moscow coming only in the dying seconds of the game.
Thursday’s second-leg match was a much duller affair, however, with neither team showing much rhythm in a game that went Copenhagen’s way much of the time. The draw was enough to send FC Copenhagen through on aggregate, however.
Brondby was the other Danish team with a chance to progress to the group stages, but they were knocked out by Norwegian club Rosenborg. This match was a much more exciting battle with plenty of hard fought drama that finally ended in a 3-2 victory to Rosenborg, who were playing at home.
Needing to overcome a one goal aggregate deficit from the first leg, Brondby fought hard to bring things level at halftime. But two goals by Rosenborg in the second half put the Norwegian side through.
