Hammarby could get right back into the title race with a win

Hammarby put in a strong performance at home to Goteborg last time out, taking the lead shortly before the interval through Besara. The hosts pushed forward early in the second half and doubled their advantage thanks to a goal from Ludwigson. When Hammarby were awarded a penalty in the 72nd-minute there wasn't any doubt that Selmani was going to convert it and wrap up a 3-0 victory, leaving the Goteborg players and fans deflated.

Hammarby Predicted Lineup – Blažević, Fenger, Paulsen, Sandberg, Nilsson, Jeahze, Besara, Bojanić, Andersen, Trawally & Ludwigson

Elfsborg took on AIK at the Boras Arena where the home side slipped behind in the 17th-minute. Henriksson got Elfsborg back onto level terms in the 25th-minute after good work from Larsson but early in the second half, Elfsborg found themselves a goal down once again. With 19-minutes left on the clock, AIK's goalscoring hero of the first half, Stefanelli, turned villain as he scored the own goal that got Elfsborg back onto level terms and saw the game end in a 2-2 draw.

Elfsborg Predicted Lineup – Rönning, Larsson, Väisänen, Henriksson, Zandén, Rømer, Olsson, Söderberg, Ondrejka, Frick & Alm
