Sørensen looks ahead to Viborg showdown

Christian Sørensen says the F.C. Copenhagen squad is ready for one final push before the Christmas beak, with a string of important games on the horizon for the Lions.

FCK players have returned from the recent international break and are preparing for Saturday's trip to Viborg in the Danish Superliga.

The league leaders then turn their attention to Bayern Munich in the Champions League next week, with two further league games, a Danish Cup double-header with Silkeborg and a home clash against Galatasaray to come before mid-December.

"We have a few more matches left (before the break)," says Sørensen. "We have to continue in the cup and hopefully also the Champions League. In addition, we have to make sure that we are top of the league when we go on break.

"It will be tough, but with the squad we have and the form we have been in, I think we are very well prepared for these last few games. It should be a fun period with great matches, so we are very much looking forward to it."

International break has been beneficial
November's international break came off the back of a week where FCK beat Manchester United in the Champions League and drew with Brøndby in the derby.

Danish football breaks for a long winter hiatus at the beginning of December, retuning midway through February. And Sørensen reckons the team is well positioned to keep up the good form before Christmas.

"I think we are in a very good place," he says. "It was a tough block (of games) we went through last time, but the international break has been good for us.

"We've had a few days off and it's been nice to get away from football mentally. So we have a lot of energy for the last set of games before we go on our winter break. of course, you can't help but look forward to the decisive matches to come."

Good memories from Viborg
Sørensen is now preparing to face his old team Viborg on Saturday. FCK edged VFF 2-0 in Parken back in September, although Sørensen didn't feature that day.

"It's always great to come back to Viborg," he says. "I have many good friends there and we won the title after the game over there in May. You are always greeted with open arms, so I look forward to coming back.

"But of course we have to take the three points home to Copenhagen. I'm sure we can find a plan to hurt Viborg, because we've been good at that in previous times we've met them. I don't remember us losing to them in a long time. Therefore, I think we have solid ground for a good result on Saturday.

"These are two teams that want to play football. Viborg have got Jakob Poulsen at the helm and he practices high pressure and forward-looking football, so we have to stop that. In some of their matches they have shown a really high level, so we have to make sure they don't hit that. But they're a team that are progressing and one that are playing well.

"Hopefully there will be many of our fans there because they were missing in Randers last time. It will be nice to have our fans back in the stands and I think the atmosphere will pick up on a Saturday night like this in Viborg."

Viborg vs FCK kicks off on Saturday at 19:00. The match will be broadcast live in Denmark on 6/discovery+. Fans in the UK can watch via FIFA+ and Unibet.
