FC København is of course not the one and only Copenhagen club. It's just the biggest, oldest, best and the only one with real international class. But this weekend they played away in the other end of Denmark (0-0 in Aalborg Saturday) so I clenched my thirst for live football with a visit to Lyngby on Sunday.
Visiting Lyngby is also a visit to the other end of the league table. Before this weekend they were rock bottom. The grilled sausages are semi self service but actually better than any food you can buy in Parken. The cheerleaders appeared to be school girls. Concrete and grass stands are separated by hedges.

Lyngby BK beat visiting Viborg FF 2-0 in a game that was a lot more entertaining than the AaB - FC København appeared on TV. Lyngby sports an attacking style of play with emphasis on fast, precise passes utilizing both wings. Defensively they run a lottery business. Their goalie is Rune Pedersen, formerly FC København. Both teams managed to miss a couple of enormous scoring opportunities.
Visiting Lyngby stadium is no problem. From Copenhagen central station take trains B or E north for about 15 minutes. From Lyngby train station it's a short walk or bus 182, 183 or 300S for just a couple of minutes. Follow fans in blue shirts.
