Copenhagen maintain leading margin

Copenhagen maintained their three-point lead over Nordsjaelland in the Superligaen after both teams bagged victories today.

Dame N'doye's brace helped Copenhagen to a 3-1 win away to Lyngby, while Cesar Santin scored their second goal and Patrick Mortensen netted for the hosts. Meanwhile, first-half goals from Mario Ticinovic and Nicolai Stokholm earned Nordsjaelland a 2-0 home win over Koge to keep up the pressure on the leaders.

Defeated sides Lyngby and Koge remain in the relegation zone, with the former six points adrift of Sonderjyske, who travel to AGF Aarhus tomorrow, and Koge a further four points adrift of safety.

Michael Krohn-Dehli's 32nd-minute penalty earned Brondby a 1-0 win over Odense despite the late sending off of Daniel Norouzi, while Midtjylland drew 2-2 at home to Silkeborg. The hosts led twice, through Sylvester Igboun Emeka and substitute Jude Nworuh, but Daniel Pedersen and Thorbjorn Holst Rasmussen equalised, the latter in the last minute.
