Damallsvenskan Round VII: Lucky win for Umeå

"I know the entire Swedish football community want's us to lose, but we don't intend to please them" was Umeå coach Andrée Jeglertz' words before the early league final against Malmö. And after the match, he conceded that it was a lucky win, but "you earn your luck". And he appearently meant that Umeå had some luck due from the Arsenal matches. Pity Malmö had to pay, they did a pretty good performance.
And this might be the right time to explain some football fundamentals. The game is about scoring goals, and more precisely more goals than the other team. Nothing else is important unless it helps you score. Being good at football is being good at outscoring your opponent, there is no other way. Malmö created more, dominated midfield and made better passes against Umeå yesterday. But they were not a better team. The best team is the one that scores the most goals.

Hammarby IF - Djurgården 1 - 2 (0-1)

Hammarby: Katarina Wicksell - Malin Nykvist, Josefin Christensen, Elin Sölveskog, Annica Svensson - Jennie Jonsson - Lousie Fors, Therese Sandström, Josefin Weijner (73 Andrea Comaneci) - Sara Johansson, Anna Lindblom (46 Jessica Landström)

Goals: 0-1 Elin Ekblom (10), 0-2 Victoria Svensson (52), 1-2 Jessica Landström (85)
Attendance: 1,001
Ariane Hingst picked up a loose ball from Hammarby's defense ten minutes into the match and gave it to Elin Ekblom, who directly shot what might have been meant as cross but ended in net. Djurgården continued to dominate but hammarby managed to defend until another defensive mistake gave the ball to Victoria Svensson inside the penalty area. Hammarby started to get more offensive towards the end of the match, much thanks to Jessica Landström, and with only minutes left Sara Johansson outrun Jane Törnqvist, setting up Jessica Landgren who didn't have any problems making it 1-2. Hammarby continued to press against Djurgården's goal the remaining minutes, but Djurgården was never really threatened.

Bälinge - Sunnanå 2 - 2 (1-2)
Bälinge: Veronika Svensson - Karolina Mats, Linda Sembrant, Lina Andersson, Nina Engström - Linda Blom, Heidi Matinlassi (68 Moa Eriksson), Anne Mäkinen, Katri Nokso-Koivisto - Emma Lindqvist (68 Annette Kent), Sanna Talonen
Sunnanå: Åsa Berglund - Sandra Berggren, Hanna Marklund, Magdalena Esseryd, Rebecca Smith, Anna Bodén, Kristina Wiklund, Maria Nordbrandt, Lina Johansson, Sanna Frostevall, Maja Johansson (80 Josefin Johansson)
Goals: 1-0 Sanna Talonen (1), 1-1 Kristina Wiklund (10), 1-2 Lina Johansson (12), 2-2 Katri Nokso-Koivisto (78)
Attendance: 499
Only seconds into the match, Bälinge's Sanna Talonen could profit from a mistake by Sunnanå's Rebecca Smith. After that the guests had a good period and they could almost run through Bälinge's defense at will. First Kicki Wiklund and then Lina Johansson went solo to score and Johansson even passed Bälinge's unlucky goalie Veronika Svensson. But in the second half Bälinge got more stability in their game, much thanks to Anne Mäkinen. Bälinge's Finnish winger Nokso-Koivisto equalised with a lucky goal that seemed like a pass, misjudged by Sunnanå's keeper. After that Bälinge pushed for a victory, but Sunnanå managed to fend them off.

Kif Örebro - Qbik 1 - 0 (1-0)
Örebro: Kristin Hammarström - Marina Pettersson, Sandra Linder, Malin Nilsson, Ingrid Ericson - Elin Magnusson, Lena Andersson, Marie Hammarström, Caroline Näfver (62 Hoden Siid-Ahmed) - Pavlina Scasna,Emelia Erixon (71 Hanna Pettersson),
Qbik: Maria Yatrakis - Anna Nilsson, Lisa Mellberg, Jenny Hallstenson, Rebecca Johnson, Therése Lückner, Amelie Rybäck, Charlotte Nygren, Therése Björk, Elin Sandgren (46 ), Jennifer Meier (87 Julia Spetsmark)
Goals: 1-0 Emelia Erixon (23)
Attendance: 836
Had it not been for great goal-keeping by Maria Yatrakis the figures had been a lot more embarrasing for Qbik. It was play against one goal most of the match, but it took a penalty for Örebro to decide the match. And Yatrakis even saved that, but Örebro's Emelia Erixon (5 goals this season) was first on the rebound. Örebro's new coach Rikard Holmlund, leading his first home match in Damallsvenskan for several years, was fairly pleased with his team: "there were periods when we played really well."

Kopparbergs/Göteborg - Falköpings KIK 5 - 1 (0-1)
Göteborg: Maria Edman - Maria Karlsson, Maria Nilsson, Jenny Engwall, Marlene Sjöberg - Camilla Schelin (81 Elin Dahl Örn), Salina Olsson, Lisa Ek (46 Anna Andén), Sofie Andersson (87 Frida Andersson) - Lotta Schelin, Sara Lindén,
Falköping: Malin Andersson - Nettan Hofling (65 Charlotte Abrahamsson), Karin Neuman, Elin Osbeck, Emma Eriksson, Sandra Krantz (90 Anna Larsson), Madeleine Tegström, Camilla Sanderheim, Sofia Fröjdstedt, Linnea Liljegärd, Cynthia Uwak (78 Josefine Alfsson)
Goals: 0-1 Linnea Linjegärd (12), 1-1 Lotta Schelin (50), 2-1 Sofie Andersson (55), 3-1 Lotta Schelin (62), 4-1 Camilla Schelin (4-1), 5-1 Lotta Schelin (84)
Attendance: 563
Falköping has over and over again showed that they can be difficult to break. In the first half they managed to frustrate Göteborg and shut out their usually dangerous attack and even got the lead after a direct free-kick by junior attacker Linnea Liljegärd. But something happened in Göteborg's locker-room at halftime ("We got a good telling-off", revealed Lotta Schelin). After 5 minutes Lotta Schelin scored on the rebound from a Sara Lindén penalty shot and 5 minutes later Sofie Andersson got lucky with a really long shot, when Falköping's players were standing still waiting for the whistle for a free-kick. Now in the lead Göteborg played with much more confidence and a couple of Schelin sisters cooperations resulted in two more goals before Lotta (now 9 goals in 7 matches) completed her hat-trick. Göteborg's fullback Marlene Sjöberg didn't have much problems neutralizing Falköping's Cynthia Uwak, who played her first match from start. Falköping's coach Krister Engström was very disappointed with the refereeing, which he claimed gave Göteborg their two first goals.

Linköpings FC - AIK 2 - 0 (0-0)
Linköping: Jenny Olsson - Frida Östberg, Sara Larsson, Charlotte Rohlin, Faith Ikidi - Maureen Mmadu, Caroline Seger, Petra Larsson (68 Ann Westermark), Maria Karlsson - Josefine Öqvist (80 Maria Aronsson), Tiffeny Milbrett (61 Kosovare Asllani)

Goals: 1-0 Petra Larsson (63), 2-0 Josefine Öqvist (69)
Attendance: 796
Great play by AIK's goalkeeper Sofia Lundgren kept AIK in the match, but Linköping's numerous chances finally materialized. A 30 meter shot by Petra Larsson and just minutes later a Josefine Öqvist goal from a great pass by spirited substitute Kosovare Asllani. AIK showed up without injured Laura Kalmari.

LDB FC Malmö - Umeå 1 - 2 (0-1)
Caroline Jönsson - Lina Nilsson (78 Dora Stefansdottir), Emma Wilhelmsson, Malin Levenstad, Therese Jönsson - Frida Nordin, Nilla Fischer, Therese Sjögran, Emma Stålhammar (74 Nanna Johansen) - Asthildur Helgadottir, Manon Melis (82 Nera Smajic)
Umeå: Carola Söberg - Anna Paulsson, Johanna Frisk, Karolina Westberg, Maria Bergkvist - Elaine, Hanna Ljungberg, Lise Klaveness - Ramona Bachmann (64 Lisa Dahlqvist), Madelaine Edlund, Marta
Goals: 0-1 Ramona Bachman (31), 1-1 Lina Nilsson (58), 1-2 Own goal (71)
Attendance: 2,610
Match of the week: the two top sides, great crowd (actually a Malmö all-time high!), vocal fans from both sides, nice weather, entertaining and exciting play. Malmö owned the midfield with Sjögran and Fischer making players like Klaveness and Ljungberg (once again in her new Moström position) fairly unvisible and their teenage defense once again were playing tight and coordinated. Umeå still came through on the wings and were a lot more efficient in front of goal than Malmö. Both Helgadottir and Melis were probably brought on from the injury list a little premature and didn't look their best. Ramona Bachman (who was picked over Ma Xiaoxu, since coach Jeglertz gave priority to the wings, which he considered Malmö's weakest point) scored her first Damallsvenskan goal somewhat against the run of the play. After Lina Nilsson's equaliser, set up by a great performance by Therese Sjögran, Malmö almost camped on Umeå's half and created lots of opportunities. But the match was ultimately decided by, who else, Marta, who's dangerous pass in front of goal probably would have reached an Umeå player if Lina Nilsson hadn't made her failed attempt to clear it, an attempt that ended in an own goal. After that Malmö's players lost most of their energy and the game faded out. Umeå's Andrée Jeglertz praised Malmö and called his victory "lucky" while Malmö's Jörgen Pettersson stated that you have to score more than once with eight or nine great chances if you want to defeat Umeå.

SVT: pregame special about Ramona Bachman. Ramona can look pretty impressive on pitch, but here you can also see a slightly awkward teenager with braces. And of course the reporter has to make the poor immigrant speak Swedish. The match clip also has a Ramona angle to it.

To be fair, Malmö scored twice, thus following your logic being the better team. Pity one of the goals was scored in their own goal.
