Brondby IF are hoping to get a place at the Europa League and they have Hibernian to get past in the qualifying second round.
Since the epic game of Celtic and Russian giant Dynamo Moscow far back in 2009, no Scottish outfit has lost at home first then gone on to win the second leg.
Coach of Hibernian Neil Lennon is hoping that they change that when they face Brondby IF after a first leg deficit. He says he knows that they are underdogs after their first leg loss but he feels they can still turn things around at Copenhagen.
When the coach was asked about the Europa League tie, he said: “Can we turn things around? It’s well within our means to do that, yes. It’s going to be very difficult. They’re a good side, with strength in depth – internationals coming off the bench – but we’re ready.”
The captain of the side David Gray who played in the first leg of the game even though his fiancée gave birth on the eve of the match, reaffirmed their commitment to upturn the scoreline in the away game. The player who was the first Hibs captain to lift the Scottish Cup in 114 years said they were capable of upturning the result in the second leg.
The coach admitted that he would be pained not to be able to stand at the touchline due to the ban he received in the first leg but added that he has people that will handle the job. The game will be difficult to predict due to the regular changes the Brondby manager Alexander Zorniger makes. The coach shuffles his team for each of the four games they have played which have all resulted in victories for the club. The winners of the game will face Hertha Berlin.
