Great victory for CBS Sport Football

In the second round of the Danish cup tournament CBS Sport football was up against FC Sydhavnen who is ranked two leagues higher than CBS Sport.

Match Summary

CBS Sport had a good start, and the first big chance after only five minutes, but Andres missed the chance. After about 20 minutes FC Sydhavnen was given a corner, which they sent short into an attacker who headed at goal. Koll could only parry it back into the box and Sydhavnen scored on the rebound. About a minute later the defence made a horrible mistake, and the score was 2-0.
Despite the lower ranking and being behind 2-0, CBS Sport showed great morale and with two fast goals just after the 2-0 goal CBS Sport was back in the game. First Andreas Andersen scored on a counter attack and minutes after Mads Madsen drew the game with a fine strike from just inside the box. 2-2 was also the score at halftime.

Half time

In the second half CBS Sport was pressured further back on the field but none of the teams came to any big chances and the match went into overtime. Even though FC Sydhavnen had most of the possession, good defensive work from CBS Sport kept them away from big chances in the overtime as well, and since we did not score either, the match went to penalty shootout.

The coin flip decided that FC Sydhavnen was to shoot first.
