Awer Mabil's FC Midtjylland passed an early test of their Danish Superliga title credentials on Monday morning (AEST).
Mabil's side travelled to reigning champions Copenhagen with a four point lead over their rivals and that buffer remains following an intense 0-0 stalemate at Parken.
Making his sixth consecutive start for The Wolves, Mabil was deployed on the left wing and came close to breaking the deadlock after the break when deflected cross hit the crossbar.
Midtjylland, who outshot their opponents 15-9 on the day, were reduced to 10 players late on when Mabil received his second booking in stoppage time.
The club continue their Danish Cup defence on Friday morning against Fremad Amager.
