Remaining matches: Helsingborg (home), Gif Sundsvall (away), Falkenberg (h), Östersund (b), Hammarby (h), IFK Gothenburg (b), Örebro (h), IFK Norrköping (b).
Comment: Had via six straight wins, and a total of 35 out of 39 possible points in the previous 13 rounds, accounted for a surprising jerk. But then 0-1 at the Friends arena came against AIK - and then the national team break. How do the "Blue Eyes" react to it? Can star running back Marcus Danielson maintain his top level? And can new Emir Kujovic be gold worthy? Have a grateful introductory game schedule after the break, which can go a long way.2. AIK, 46 (33-16, +17)
Remaining matches: Häcken (b), Hammarby (b), IFK Gothenburg (h), Elfsborg (b), Örebro (h), Falkenberg (b), Malmö FF (b), Gif Sundsvall (h).
Comment: The European qualifier took on the forces, but in the Swedes it only meant a terrible defeat at home against Kalmar despite a tense game program. 1-0 to the arch rival Djurgården was vital for the continued gold struggle and the national team suspension provided much needed oxygen in the lungs. The rest should have done "Gnaget" well, and now there is no European game struggling. But five of the eight remaining away games are a tough program. If last year's defense sits, it could be a second straight gold.3. Malmö FF, 44 (40-14, +26)
Remaining matches: IFK Norrköping (h), Elfsborg (b), Helsingborg (h), AFC Eskilstuna (b), IFK Gothenburg (h), Hammarby (b), AIK (h), Örebro (b).
Comment: Joined management in May and basically looked unstoppable. But four straight crosses and just two wins in eight matches during the summer caused MFF to lose command. However, there are only three points behind Djurgården and will also meet three of the gold competitors at home level in the future. The question is just how much will the Europa League squad play on the squad? Will veteran Markus Rosenberg give himself a golden ending to his career?4. Hedges, 43 (37-18, +19)
Remaining matches: AIK (h), Kalmar (b), Elfsborg (h), IFK Gothenburg (b), Östersund (h), Helsingborg (b), IFK Norrköping (h), Hammarby (b).
Comment: Started weakly and then had to hunt, which Hisingslagen has done successfully. Went out with four wins and a cross of five matches. Meets four of the top competitors in the closing - but all five losses this year have come to the top team: Djurgården twice, AIK, IFK Gothenburg and IFK Norrköping. However, tend to be strong in the fall, not least last year. Can new Gustaf Nilsson replace fugitive shooter King Alexander Jeremejeff?5. Hammarby, 41 (49-30, +19)
Remaining matches: IFK Göteborg (h), AIK (h), Sirius (b), Örebro (h), Djurgården (b), Malmö FF (h), Östersund (b), Häcken (h).
Comment: After a weak ending in the spring, Hammarby started drumming during the summer. Won seven of eight games before heavy 0-2 away against IFK Norrköping before the break. How will "Bajen" react to that? In the last eight matches, five of the top competitors are waiting - but Hammarby meets everyone at home ("away exchange" against Djurgården is played on Tele2), which is a clear advantage. Has the best goal-scoring offensive in the series, but has let in most goals by the gold aspirants.6. IFK Gothenburg, 41 (35-18, +17)
Remaining matches: Hammarby (b), Sirius (h), AIK (b), Häcken (h), Malmö FF (b), Djurgården (h), Elfsborg (b), Östersund (h).
Comment: After last year's desert walk, hardly anyone at IFK Gothenburg believed in a gold battle this year. At least after the premiere loss against AFC Eskilstuna. But "Blåvitt" has surprised and lost only one of the last 19 all-Swedish matches. However, he received several heavy injuries and also sold both Benjamin Nygren and team captain Sebastian Ohlsson. But Robin Söder is shining and in the offensive there is kick capital in Lasse Vibe. Meets four of the gold competitors and has a "sneaking position".7. IFK Norrköping, 40 (37-19, +18)
Remaining matches: Malmö FF (b), Örebro (h), AFC Eskilstuna (h), Falkenberg (b), Gif Sundsvall (b), Kalmar (h), Häcken (b), Djurgården (h).
Comment: AIK chased into the tile last year, but started with just one win on the first eight games and looked to be lost. However, now both defensive (six straight zeros) and offensive (11-0 the last three) have been seated, and then IFK Norrköping has found a top form that can go a long way. Not least, super talent Sead Haksabaovic has finally started to bloom. On the one hand is seven sticks after Djurgården, but on the other hand has a thankful game schedule in advance which should give many points.
