Göteborg and Umeå escaped the current Swedish snow-storm and met in spring-like weather in southern Turkey. After a fairly equal first half, Umeå showed much more gusto in the second. Göteborg, missing injured Lotta Schelin, had to focus on defense where Jane Törnqvist and Marlene Sjöberg impressed. Umeå's latest signing, Japanese Mami Yamaguchi, made a good showing in her first match with the team, in spite of playing in an unfamiliar defensive midfield position. "She is well educated", commented coach Jeglertz.

Sunnanå continues to show high scoring results, but against rather weak resistance. "The result is fairly uninteresting in these matches", said coach Rainer Eskelinen. Finding the right set-up for the team is what matters at this time. he should be opleased with the number of players that scores though, the more since his main striker Perpetua Nkwocha will not join the team for a couple of weeks yet.

Goals: 1-0 Maria Karlsson, 2-0 Jessica Landström, 2-1 Alexandra Höglund
Linköping were the much better side and it really should have been a much bigger scoreline with a 19-4 superiority for Linköping in scoring chances. Bälinge's coach Zaine Söderlund was still unsatisfied withy his team's first half performance, when they were much too nice in the defense.
Linköping's Josefine Öqvist and Anna-Kaisa Rantanen rested after Algarve Cup and Cristiane nursed a minor muscle injury.
