Randers 2-4 FCK: Reaction

F.C. Copenhagen beat Randers 4-2 in Jutland on Sunday to maintain the pace at the top of the Danish Superliga table.

The Lions twice came from behind to level the scores, with Rasmus Falk scoring in the seventh minute to cancel out Filip Bundgaard's opener, while Viktor Claesson scored six minutes after Simen Nordli found the net on the hour mark.

Jordan Larsson's strike put FCK in front with 18 minutes remaining, before Victor Frodholt secured the win deep into stoppage time.

"We're not satisfied with the performance, and while it was an even game of football I don't think our win was undeserved," says FCK head coach Jacob Neestrup.

"After all, we created a lot of chances but defensively we were far too weak, both collectively and individually. They ran right through us at the start of both halves. We couldn't play our way out of that at all, and I refuse to believe that we can come out this bad again for two halves.

"But huge credit goes to the way we responded to their goals, especially in the second half. We grew into the game in both halves and our substitutes also made a difference in the second half, where we created a lot after going 2-1 behind.

"We knew it was going to be a difficult game but we also have to credit Randers. They had done their homework well and put us in some serious dilemmas, so you have to give them credit for that.

"Like I said, it was an even game that we could have lost and drawn. When all is said and done, we still managed to win and take home three points, and in the end that's the most important thing."

Next up for FCK is Wednesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Manchester United in Parken.
