FC Copenhagen secured its fifth Danish league title on Sunday despite a 1-0 loss to OB as rival Brondby also was beaten in the penultimate round. The results left FC Copenhagen with 73 points, six ahead of Brondby with one round remaining. It was the fourth title in six years for FC Copenhagen and fifth since it was formed with the merger of B 1903 Copenhagen and KB Copenhagen in 1992. Brazilian forward Junior scored for OB three minutes into the game in Odense, and FC Copenhagen fans started getting nervous when Johan Elmander put Brondby ahead against Horsens. But Charles Akonnor equalized for Horsens before the break, and made it 2-1 at the start of the second half. Steffen Ernemann and Besart Berisha also scored to give Horsens a 4-1 win that crushed Brondby's title hopes. OB and Viborg, which trounced Viborg 4-0 on Sunday, will battle for third place in the last round. (AP)
