#Shock #exit #penalty #drama
The Superliga club OB is finished in the cup tournament after they were sent out of the bottom team in the 1st division. Nykøbing came in front with a dream goal – see it here. They are number one shock in the 1st division, but delivered a shock in the cup tournament on Wednesday evening. Nykøbing FC can be said to be something of a cup favorite killer. Last season, FCK were knocked out of the tournament 3-0. This time it was OB’s turn to quit after a defeat in Nykøbing. After 105 scoreless minutes, Nykøbing struck at the end of the first half of extra time. Ahmed Hassan danced around on the edge of the box and then smashed the ball right into the far corner. Fantastic score by Hassan. Later in extra time, he smashed the ball onto the inside of the post, but it didn’t go in. Instead, OB got the equalizer right after on a corner kick when Joel King accidentally hit the ball. Big cup drama: OB equalized in the 115th minute. Phew, a drama! With the equaliser, the match had to go to a penalty shootout. After a score for each team, OB’s Mads Frøkjær burned when Morten Bank in the goal had read his finish. Nykøbing then scored again, before the Superliga club AGAIN missed. Armin Gigovic delivered a sloppy kick. Right after, Nykøbing also burned. Goal scorer Ahmed Hassan slipped just at the closing moment and shot over. Everyone had to hold their breath and nothing was decided yet. OB scored, Nykøbing scored, and the pressure was then enormous on Issam Jebali. He burned, and Nykøbing moved on. Naturally, this caused Lolland’s Bank Park to go wild with jubilation. The early exit already in the second round casts dark clouds over the Odense club and head coach Andreas Alm. They are out of the cup competition and are still below the line in the Superliga with just seven points in eight games. ——— SPLIT ELEMENT ——— Powerful fan grouping creates discord in Brøndby – read more here.
