Preview: Nordsjaelland vs. Brondby - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Danish Superliga clash between Nordsjaelland and Brondby, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

After winning their opening two matches of the 2023-24 campaign, Nordsjaelland will attempt to continue their impressive start to the season when they face Brondby on Sunday.

The visitors, meanwhile, will be looking for a positive response after giving up a lead to lose 2-1 to Odense last weekend.

After falling four points short of the Superliga title last term, Nordsjaelland are hoping that this can be the season they are crowned Danish champions for the second time in their history.

The Tigrene certainly signalled their intent with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Viborg in their season opener, before sweeping aside Aarhus in their first away trip of the season.

Benjamin Nygren's 34th-minute opener was quickly cancelled out by Aarhus midfielder Nicolai Poulsen, ensuring that the two sides went into half time on level terms.

Nordsjaelland retook the lead through Ibrahim Osman in the 51st minute, before Marcus Ingvartsen dispatched his late spot kick to wrap up a 3-1 win, helping his side finish Matchday Two in first position due to their superior goal difference.

Nordsjaelland will be determined to maintain their 100% start to the season, and they will take confidence from the fact that they have won their last two home meetings with Brondby.

Like their opponents, Brondby began the new season with a positive result, as they came from behind to claim a 2-1 away victory over Silkeborg.

Unfortunately for Jesper Sorensen's side, they were unable to get off to a winning start in front of their home supporters last weekend, losing 2-1 to Odense in their first home match of the 2023-24 campaign.

After playing out a goalless first half, Brondby took the lead within nine minutes of the restart thanks to Nicolai Vallys's second goal of the season.

Their lead was quickly wiped out by Alasana Manneh, before Bashkim Kadrii scored a stoppage-time winner to snatch all three points for Odense.

Brondby will be looking for a response on Sunday, and they will also be hoping to extend their five-game unbeaten away run in the Superliga, which stretches back to April 30.

Team News

Kian Hansen was forced off at half time against Aarhaus, but the Nordsjaelland captain is expected to be fit to take his place in central defence.

Ernest Nuamah, who scored a hat-trick in the season opener, dropped down to the bench for the win over Aarhaus amid interest from clubs across Europe, but the highly-rated youngster is expected to return to the starting lineup on Sunday.

After scoring his first goal for the club last weekend, summer signing Ingvarsten will retain his place in the forward line.

As for the visitors, they are expected to be without the services of midfielder Mathias Grieve, who missed the defeat to Odense through injury.

After dropping down to the bench last weekend, Henrik Heggheim is expected to return to the side to feature in a back three alongside Frederik Alves and Rasmus Lauritsen.

Mateusz Kowalczyk, who completed his move from Polish side LKS Lodz during the week, is set to be brought straight into the matchday squad and provide Sorensen with an option off the bench.

Nordsjaelland possible starting lineup:
A Hansen; Villadsen, Jensen-Abbew, K. Hansen, Frese; Svensson, Tverskov, Diomande; Nuamah, Osman, Ingvarsten

Brondby possible starting lineup:
Mikkelsen; Alves, Lauritsen, Heggheim; Wass, Evjen, Radosevic, Vallys, Riveros; Kvistgaarden, Omoijuanfo

We say: Nordsjaelland 3-1 Brondby

Nordsjaelland have made a fast start to the 2023-24 season, scoring seven goals across their opening two games to pick up maximum points.

Having won their last two home fixtures against Brondby, we think that the hosts will utilise home advantage once again to claim all three points on Sunday.
