Kalmar pounced on AIK - the first victory in three months
Kalmar FF had not won an all-Swedish match since the beginning of May. After eleven straight matches without victory, it came to an end - with 2-1 against the Swedish champions on away ground.
- A very, very weak first half, they roll us out. They want a lot more in the first half and they are better, we get started in the second half but we do not get that 2-2 goal that we need to be able to force even more. Kalmar is better than us and deserves to win, AIK's Anton Saletros tells C More.
AIK meeting Celtic this week rested some of his best players and was caught on the bed immediately.
Alexander Jakobsen, borrowed from Norrköping, tricked Karol Mets with a sulphine and outwitted Oscar Linnér with a fine placement in the distant burg. If 1-0 came as a surprise just nine minutes into the match, 2-0 might not have been expected, but well deserved.
AIK had a hard time creating anything dangerous going forward and really only tested Lucas Hägg-Johansson once in the first half. The otherwise secure AIK defense let the ball bounce around the penalty area several times before Fidan Aliti rolled it in via the post.Two changes in halftime - Bahui showed class
Rikard Norling showed what he thought of the effort with two replacements already at the break. In came Henok Goitom and Nabil Bahoui, out went Bilal Hussein and Felix Michel who were replaced as forward. Bahoui only needed six minutes to run and some surfaces to run on to play until a reduction. He dropped the ball to Tarik Elyounoussi who turned away a couple of calmerits and put 1-2. Closer than that, AIK did not recover its fourth loss for the season.
