It has consequences if you fail to deliver the goods.
Just ask Pierre Bengtsson.
The Swedish midfielder was allowed to sit out on the bench, as FC Copenhagen met Celtic in the Europa League.
Pierre Bengtsson was short and well put by the team.
- So you fight against Esbjerg?, says Stale Solbakken on a part of the reason that the regular sure short as left-back was smoked in a corner.
- I had to put Pierre Bengtsson of, because he took responsibility in Esbjerg. He should have helped Mohamed Daramy, but he did not. He took no responsibility, says Stale Solbakken as the explanation of the fact that the experienced swede had to sit out in the cold until the middle of the second half.
- Pierre delivered 22 really good minutes against Celtic. It was a great indhop of him, roses Stale Solbakken, who already has put the situation behind him.
It was Bryan Oviedo, who played in place of Pierre Bengtsson. And it was not a wise decision, because Bryan Oviedo provided a very weak effort. He was directly implicated in the Celtics føringsmål, and his timing was not the best on the grønsværen.

FC Copenhagen played to a 1-1 draw against Celtic, and now the scots with the best cards on the hand to go further in the tournament.
- We have now played 28 games in a row in Europe, where the opponent only scored one goal against us. Can we maintain the good stats, looks good, says Stale Solbakken.
the Norwegian has written off Viktor Fischer for the second leg next week. Here can Andreas Bjelland come into play.
Out of the picture is also Nicolai Boilesen and Jonas Wind, which is coming back after lengthy injuries. They are only current at the beginning of april.
