A Danish Superliga game between Brondby and FC Copenhagen was marred when home fans threw dead rats at a player.

Brondby supporters threw the rodents at Copenhagen defender Ludwig Augustinsson as he went to take a corner.

Leaders Copenhagen won the match 1-0 to open up a 13-point lead over nearest rivals Brondby.

"It's unfortunate that there are some visitors who could not figure out how to behave properly," said Brondby's sports director Troels Bech.external-link
