AIK - Malmö FF 0-2 (0-1)
AIK: Sofie Holmqvist (46 Jenny Lundqvist) - Anna-Karin Andersson, Sara Andersson, Hanna Jöhnk, Maria Moustakakis - Therese Sandström, Yolanda Odenyo, Hodan Siid-Ahmed (66 Lina Hedkvist) - Anna Lundin, Lena Persson (66 Josefin Wejner), Nazanin Vaseghpanah
Malmö FF: Caroline Jönsson - Malin Andersson, Denise Reddy, Therese Jönsson, Jenny Engwall - Formiga, Nilla Fischer, Therese Sjögran, Frida Nordin (69 Emma Stålhammar) - Therese Lundin (84 Linda Blom), Asthildur Helgadottir (73 Mia Westerbladh)
Goals: 0-1 Nilla Fischer (10), 0-2 Therese Lundin (70)
"I'm of course never satisfied with a defeat", said AIK's coach Christer Söderberg, "but I'm satisfied with my team's performance". And AIK had a pretty good match against a Malmö side that seemed less inspired than last Sunday. Malmö's keeper Caroline Jönsson was forced to a couple of really tough saves, including one Lena Persson penalty kick. Malmö's goals was from a Malin Andersson free kick that Nilla Fischer (player of the match according to TV4) forced into goal and Therese Lundin being first on a rebound from AIK's keeper. Malmö's Anders Johansson commented that this was the kind of match that Malmö very well might have lost last season, but this year they've shown that they can win even when their game isn't working they way it should.

Last year's champions are still having problems. "At least we were playing good attacking football", Djurgården's Benny Persson said. Even if QBIK came back the last 15 minutes of the match, Persson was never really worried.
In a pre-game interview with Stockholm daily Svenska Dagbladet, Benny Persson talks about the teams "crisis" and says the players realize that they don't play the way they know they can: "It's like we don't dare to play football". "But we are great on training sessions", Persson says, "This is all in the head. They know defending the championship will be really hard. So we've decided to shift our focus. Our goal is to get our game together again in time for the UEFA Women's Cup matches this fall".

Goals: 0-1 Lotta Schelin (20), 0-2 Heidi Kackur (63)
Göteborg outplayed the home team, using an efficient short passing play where their Linköping counterparts often chose to try to dribble. Kackur and Schelin were impressive and Göteborg had more chances to a bigger win than Linköping had to equalise.

Mallbackens IF - KIF Örebro 1-2 (0-1)
Goals: 0-1 Marie Hammarström (20), 0-2 Lisa Dahlkvist (54), 1-2 Maja Johansson (67)
KIF Örebro has been having great problems with their attack and this time coach Pia Sundhage had ordered her players to shoot whenever they saw the opportunity. Two goals was the result, twice as many as the two last matches put together. The end of the match became nervous for Örebro, Maja Johansson having reduced Örebro's lead to one goal, and as Sundhage commented "it showed that we have a really young team". Getting their first win since the americans left must be a big relief for the team.

It turned out the way it usually does when Umeå hosts one of the minor teams - it is a huge difference in quality and Hammarby had to spend most of the game defending. "I went up here hoping for a 3-0 defeat", Hammarby's En Perlskog commented.
