AIK stuns high-flying Gothenburg

7 May 2013-PA Sport

IFK Gothenburg passed up the chance to move top of the Allsvenska standings and saw its unbeaten start to the season end in a 3-1 defeat at AIK.

The Solna club was playing its first match since the death of goalkeeper Ivan Turina, who died last week in his sleep aged 32.

Players and supporters paid tribute to Turina before kick-off with a minute's silence and the unfurling of a giant banner in the crowd.

Once the match got under way, Philip Haglund's 24th-minute penalty gave the visitor a solid start, but Kennedy Igboananike restored parity seven minutes later and second-half goals from Celso Borges (49) and Martin Mutumba-Kayongo (80) sealed the host's comeback.

The result left IFK in third spot - two points behind leader Helsingborg after seven games - and lifted AIK to eighth position.

Elsewhere, BK Hacken climbed to sixth in the standings with a 1-0 home win over Brommapojkarna.

Moestafa El Kabir netted the game's only goal seven minutes from time to move the victor level on 10 points with fifth-placed Kalmar, which drew 1-1 at Gefle.

The visitor looked to be on course for its third win of the season when Mans Soderqvist gave it a 20th-minute lead, but Jakob Orlov's equaliser 11 minutes after the restart ensured the spoils were shared.
