"A derby always has a life of its own". "The margins are going to determine it". And "we are a bigger club than them".
There you have a full plate at derby-klichëerne, and it also applies this time, where FC Copenhagen offers Brøndby up to fodboldbrunch Sunday in Telia Parken. So let us just take hold of the past and focus on the.
For Brøndbys Swedish offensivprofil Simon Hedlund lit up during the rivalopgøret on the club's website with the words ‘Mcdonalds is the biggest club in Denmark’. It is funny enough not totally agree with FC Copenhagen.
"It is in all the Brøndby-players' contract. They write that they must say it three times in the course of a year," says Stale Solbakken on his usual ironic manner, and respond to svenskerens opinions.
"I am absolutely ice cold. It uses the I do not time. It is the Hammarby who are the greatest now..."
The last phrase was a little nod to the Swedish Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his ambitions with the Stockholm club, which he has just been a part of the ownership group behind. But enough about that.
For the Danish derby between FC Copenhagen and Brøndby again become a bonfire of emotions and fear of losing bragging rights to arch-rivals. And we hold on to the classic talk about who is the biggest club, have the young Mohamed Daramy also its clear position on the issue.
"They know themselves that they are not the biggest club in Denmark. Of course, they must say it, but deep down inside they know it very well. They have not won the championship in, I don't know how many years... since I was born, almost."
"They are not the biggest club, according to me," says Daramy, who was three years old when Bolton last won the last championship.
And it is some of the same reactions that fall from the copenhageners, when it comes to the classic discussion about which of the two ærkerivaler that can run with the imaginary title as Denmark's largest club.
"With all honor and respect, I feel that we are a larger club. I think also that the results, the titles and the history backs up. Yes, I will not even stand and comment on," says Nicolaj Thomsen.
the Bigger the club or not, that Brøndby, who can present the latest derbysejr of the two teams. The fell on the Brøndby Stadium 6. October, where the team from the Area won 3-1. Therefore Brøndby well with good conscience claim that they have shown that they are better than FCK or what?
"in my opinion we are better than them. Not just in the time I have been here. They were good in the first year I was here, but the winner is still not the league. But it is a derby and anything can happen," says FCK-captain Carlos Zeca and looking back at the recent derby.
"we experienced even in the recent match at Brøndby Stadium. I think that, if we have the same conditions, we are better. Now we just show it on the field. It is no use to just talk and say that we are better. If we don't show it, doesn't mean anything."
And the position - to FC Copenhagen will be out to prove on the pitch that the man is the older brother in the inflamed conditions - share I am the captain, with his Swedish team-mate, which is one of the more experienced derby-participants.
"There is a little more pressure on us when we lost eventually to the oval. It is really important that we win the match on Sunday - both for the table and for our fans. It is an important match for us," says Pierre Bengtsson.
