It was probably agreed upon in advance, as the hooligans with a penchant for FC Copenhagen and Brøndby on Sunday afternoon to beat the loose in Copenhagen before the two clubs meet in the Park.
It takes the Copenhagen Police day then.
- We can not say with 100 percent certainty how it originated, but what we do know is that there was a group of hooligans around a tavern. They move around a bit in the area, and then there's another group and assassinates them. We have a strong presumption, that it was agreed in advance, says vicepolitiinspektør Jesper Bangsgaard to Ekstra Bladet.

Brøndby-supporters had no access to the showdown in the Park, but found themselves still in the Vesterbro district in Copenhagen a few hours before kick-off. According to Ekstra information, it was them who sat around the tavern.
According to police, there were 40-50 people in the area around the tavern, while the second group was slightly larger. Jesper Bangsgaard does not hesitate to conclude that there was talk about hooligans with a clear goal.
- We are sorry to call them fans, because it is not soccer ball, which is in the centre. It is the violence, and therefore, we will rather refer to them as hooligans. For that is what they are.
- It is some groups, as we unfortunately know all too well in advance, and it is not the soccer ball that is the focal point. It is the violence. The soccer ball is the excuse, they shoot it into. It is a bunch of voldsparate young men, where the moral compass is completely out of course. And the use of an affiliation to one or other grouping to achieve their goal, which is to contend, says Jesper Bangsgaard.
In all, four persons were arrested on Sunday. Three to participate in the scramble, while one was charged with throwing items after police officers.
Several of the companies involved may, however, well prepare for yet another meeting with the police.
- We are in the process of obtaining video material, and then we have some groups that know the monster really well, and then they started to see how many they can recognize, of those who participated in the scramble. They try to mask themselves, but in the course of the scramble, there is no masking, there is a little of, and some they can recognize in other ways. Them will we come after", says Jesper Bangsgaard.
A pair of cops was hit by missiles in connection with the riots, but no one came, according to Jesper Bangsgaard seriously hurt.
the Battle on the pitch ended 0-0.
