Nordsjaelland leapfrog FCK at the summit
Nordsjaelland are in the driving seat in the race for the Superligaen title after victory over Brondby, while FC Copenhagen lost top spot with a defeat at FC Midtjylland.
A 59th-minute strike from Kasper Lorentzen earned Nordsjaelland a 1-0 win and moved them two points clear at the summit, with one round remaining, as Copenhagen were beaten by the same scoreline. Danny Olsen scored fourth-placed Midtjylland's only goal after 66 minutes to inflict a fifth defeat of the season on Copenhagen.
Horsens consolidated third place with a 3-1 win at home to AGF Aarhus. Alexander Andersen's 28th-minute opener for Horsens was cancelled out by Hjalte Bo Norregaard six minutes before the interval. But Ken Fagerberg fired the hosts in front once more after the break and a late penalty from Martin Retov made sure of the points.
Basement side Koge suffered a 1-0 loss to AaB with Nicklas Helenius converting a penalty four minutes from time. Odense routed Lyngby 4-0 thanks to goals from Kalilou Traore with two, Rasmus Falk Jensen and Andreas Johansson. Koge and Lyngby have already been relegated.
Silkeborg and Sonderjyske shared the points in a 1-1 draw in their mid-table contest. The home side went ahead through Kasper Riisgaard (39), but Sonderjyske responded with a Jarl Andre Storbaek penalty on 77 minutes.
