Copenhagen secure seventh Danish title

COPENHAGEN - FC Copenhagen won their seventh Danish title on Sunday following a 1-0 victory at Esbjerg with one game remaining in the premiership season. Copenhagen won thanks to a late first-half penalty by Brazilian Cesar Santin which took them to 73 points. Runners-up Brondby lost 1-0 at Aarhus to stay on 68 points before the final round of matches next week. Copenhagen will enter next season's Champions League qualification second round. The win completed Copenhagen's second double in five years after they won the Danish Cup final on Thursday, 1-0 against Aalborg. The team known as "The Lions" to their fans had won six previous championships after being formed following a merger of two clubs in 1992.
