AIK's Sebastian Larsson became a derby hero in front of a record crowd at the Friends Arena and made sure that the gold match lives on to the highest degree.
Instead of Djurgården making a snap in the table, only one point is down to the second AIK.
Between one Djurgården and seven IFK Norrköping, only seven points differ when eight rounds remain.
SVT expert Daniel Nannskog:
- It still feels like it takes a lot for Häcken, Gothenburg, Hammarby or Norrköping to get involved in the gold fight. I don't think the top three teams are sacking. Anyone from Djurgården, AIK or Malmö squeezes the gold, he says.
- They are too stable. AIK and Malmö have been in these situations countless times before and know exactly what to do and not to do. They will not walk on any mines.“Simplest schedule for Djurgården”
Djurgården now has the simplest schedule of the three top teams, Nannskog thinks. Among other things, Helsingborg, Gif Sundsvall, Falkenberg and Östersund await in the next four matches. All teams are on the bottom half of the table.
- Djurgården will be interesting to follow, they have not been in this situation for a few years and are a little difficult to assess in that way. However, they have the simplest schedule of the three top teams. Now they got away with a very difficult match and much lighter resistance awaits. The zoo does not need to drip at all, he says.
