The newcomer Hammarby lost the derby against AIK Solna with 2-0 Monday night. It was painfully obvious how much the offensive midfielder Kennedy Bakirciouglu means for them. He had a minor injury, but will play again here. Bakircioglu is the key to their whole offensive game. The other newcomer Sundsvall lost with 0-1 at home against Elfsborg but played very well. They created many goal chances and with better finish or a less skilled keeper in the away team, they would have won. But this is typical for newcomers or teams in the lower end of the table; if you play well but still lose it is actually a bad sign. Hammarby likes when the game flows in high pace between the penalty areas, Sundsvall is quite good at that kind of football too. If Hammarby can keep the flow they have had during the first rounds, I doubt Sundsvall can stand up for 90 minutes.Over 3.5 goals.
