A lot of the pre-match talked been around the possibility for Umeå to win the treble, Swedish league, Swedish Cup and UEFA Cup, with the UEFA Cup as the uncertain factor. But Linköping showed there are ways to defeat Umeå. The used the same recipe that Djurgården/Älvsjö with success used 2004 and 2005. Playing aggressive from the start, keeping very close, pressuring hard and high to disturb Umeå's playmaking midfield and making fast counters when Umeå lose possession. Linköping dominated most of the fiorst half, as Umeå had problems getting back in the game after Maria Aronsson headed a goal from a cross by Maria Karlsson. When Sanna Valkonen could equalise only minutes into the half, heading in an Anne Mökinen free-kick, the match could have turned, but almost immideately after another Maria Karlsson-Maria Aronsson combination gave Linköping the lead again. And at least on TV it looks like the Umeå defense gives Aronsson all the time in the world to dribble her way through to goal. And when Josefine Öqvist caught a careless Umeå pass in midfield, advanced 25 meters on her own and fired away from just outside the area to make it 1-3, the match was over. Umeå pressured, Linköping defended and Hedvig Lindahl saved everything except a late Valkonen goal.
This was Linköping's first title, and part of the reason they won might be found in just that fact. They wanted it more.
