ESBJERG, denmark (Ekstra Bladet): There has been written and talked much about Brøndbys defending after forårspremieren in Farum. Let us with the same beat: BIF-defense had not been a notch better since last Sunday.
It was exhibited at the crudest manner, as Esbjerg took the Brøndby from each other on Sunday night and was the best on all parameters, as vestjyderne pulled a too narrow 2-1 win in the country.
Already after 12 minutes gave a kæmpefejl of Benedikt Röcker a friløber to Adrian Petre, when the German centerforsvarer let a flat ball dropping under his foot on a soft replacement from Anthony Jung. The young Romanian came, however, in an acute angle and overplacerede its completion.
Just three minutes later was mad again, as Esbjerg seamlessly combined out of Brøndbys træningskegler. The whole thing ended up with a flat entry from Mathias Kristensen in the right, as Joni Kauko reached forward and put the heel on, so the ball in the most beautiful way the smoke bag on their own stand and in behind Marvin Schwäbe.
A fantastic goal by Joni Kauko, you would never have the game money on, the fin would make in the League. At least in this season. For in fact this was a goal of a classic Joni Kauko 2.0. That is, the version, the fin has been in Esbjerg. The equilibristic end was just an extra spice.
It could have gone very wrong for Bolton two minutes after Kaukos gun-box. This time were playing the home team through venstresiden, in a post found its way to a relatively free Mathias Kristensen, who, however, completed within Schwäbes range. Brøndby-keeper was the only one from the Area, which was just near to touch the ball in the situation.
After 20 minutes, responded Alexander Zorniger and went over to his well-known plan B with a more flat midfield formation. In contrast to the 3-3 match in Farum managed the maneuver. Such as. There went at least 20 minutes before the Esbjerg again was dangerous, and it was not really toxic because of Adrian petre's lack of technique.

On the other hand, created the Brøndby NOTHING against your goals, and especially Dominik Kaiser and Besar Halimi was miserable in the picture. The latter was also picked off in the break to make room for the returnees Hany Mukhtar.
But it was not the German an author, who stole the focus from the second half beginning. So far from even. Again it was Brøndbys bagkæde, who came in the most unfortunate light after just four minutes.
Although there were six black Killin people back in the duel with the three EfB's in some relatively harmless 50/50-melee attacks, ended up the situation, nevertheless, to Jacob Lungi Sørensen got plenty of time to find an unmarked Adrian Petre in the field. The third time failed the Romanian not and patted dry Esbjerg at 2-0.
Passively defending of the worst kind, where no Mcdonalds people took responsibility and blared through despite several opportunities to do just that. Brøndby resemble in any way a crew that just like to play in the top-six ...
After a little time began the massive bunch of fellow travelers Brøndby-fans to sing, ‘come, Brøndby, show In will win!’ It made the Brøndby-players not.
And the best as Jens Martin Gammelby was to find self-confidence at right-back, switched Zorniger him out and put a preposterous playing Dominik Kaiser down on the ball.

the Kaiser was, in fairness, only just as bad as his colleagues in defense. And it was not his fault, that Esbjerg had the opportunity to close the purge after 64 and 69 minutes with two giant chances after corner kicks. It was Halsti free. So it was Jeppe Brinch. But the hosts were gracious at the oval.
Esbjerg lack of effectiveness was, however, at a high cost, with four minutes again showed Brøndby for the first time, a wildness and took a throw quickly. Nikolai Laursen found Benedikt Röcker in front of goal, and here was a German sharper than in the opposite end.
in Fact, was the very same Röcker centimeters from to obtain a very undeserved point, when he shortly after the reversal headede ball whiff past the target. Closer came the guests, even though, you fielded eight-nine good minutes with the pressure to finish. Thanks to the substituted Simon Tibbling and Nikolai Laursen.
It was more close in the final phase, than kampbilledet actually showed. Bolton and Alexander Zorniger must be very worried about after the defeat in Esbjerg.
