ESBJERG, denmark (Ekstra Bladet): Brøndbys medaljedrøm led maundy Thursday even a crack, since Esbjerg showed itself as a much better crew and snatched a deserved 1-0 victory.
the Victory should have been greater, since vestjyderne drove Brøndby over in the second half, where the guests never managed to sharpness, ingenuity or will.
the Performance must in the degree of the worry, Martin Retov and co., and it showed with all possible clarity, why the defending canada has not won in the mesterskabslutspillet in the year yet.
the First half quickly developed to a level where one attack after another run out in the sand, when the goal area was in sight.
Esbjerg was marginally better than the guests, and especially Daniel Anyembe showed his gennembrudsstyrke over for Anthony Jung, who once again looked like a man who has abandoned ævred in the Area. Defensively had Anyembe also a track on the store against Ante Erceg.
But it was a first half with no real scoring opportunities, and to add insult to the spe, as it was reported from gæsteafsnittet, that there was only one functioning ølhane, which caused a massive queue at the thirsty Brøndby-fans.
the Experience in the queue was anyway - with the guarantee of the state - more entertaining than what was happening on the grønsværen...
It took ten minutes of the second half, before the match's first real chance occurred. Brøndby managed to put five passes together in a row, congratulations with it, and so ended the ball through a cutback of a free Ante Erceg in the field, who completed in the short corner. Jeppe Højbjerg had to pull a reflex forward, although he was in the side of the cage.
Nor, at the other end showed Brøndby sharpness. On the contrary.
After an hour's play gave Paul Arajuuri a golden opportunity for fellow Joni Kauko, since Brøndby-defender hopelessly cleared a post back in the field, where the Finnish Messi was lurking and just say ’kiitos’.
Again-once again this season showed Kauko its målnæse and knocked Esbjerg in front with his eighth sæsonscoring.
and Then crumbled it otherwise completely in Brøndbys fragile defensive, while the match changed character. Thanks to Esbjerg, there is set a gear up.
the First was a finish from Mathias Kristensen saved on the line before the hosts with 20 minutes again distinguished combined through Brøndbys træningskegler. Marvin Schwäbe pulled a nice fodparade towards Carlo Holse in the situation.
the Third shot in the bøssen had Jacob ’Lungi’ Sorensen, as he was completely unmarked at a free kick, but the young midfielder mistimede its header, so the ball was cast down into the earth and up onto the crossbar. It smelled of a humiliation of Brøndby, but the measured breeding showed still ’only’ 1-0.
Brøndby managed never to create a pressure for the reversal, and shortly before the time should Adnana Tighadouini have closed the feast, when he was alone with Schwäbe with all the time in the world. Lejesvenden did, however, manage to squander friløberen away.
Kaukos lone goal proved to be enough for three points against a tame Mcdonalds crew, and vestjyderne can now brøste the third victory against Brøndby this season.
Brøndby have now five points behind oprykkerne from Esbjerg, who just continues to impress.
