Sport: Thus continues the solid goal spring for Bothheim and his striker partner Isaac Kiese Thelin. The two are at the top of the top scorer list in the league with four and six goals respectively, and they also scored a goal in the cup.

Henning Berg’s AIK were unbeaten before the away game in Malmö, but were soon to get a reality check. Botheim was well placed in the field and scored 1-0 on Jens Stryger Larsen’s precise cross after 14 minutes.

The Oslo boy was in a good mood for the game, and after just over half an hour he showed up again. Bothheim played a wall with Thelin before he elegantly tipped his team-mate through so that he could score the 2-0 goal.

– I said to Isaac after I scored that “now you’re going to get it”. So I kept what I promised, Botheim told Discovery during the break.

– Terrible. Almost everything is wrong. I think we are good for the first five minutes. After that it has been terrible, said AIK’s Mads Døhr Thychosen.

Berg also had to see left-back Eskil Edh go off the pitch with what looked like a thigh injury after 26 minutes. And in the second half, right-back Thychosen had to be replaced after a collision with his own goalkeeper.

The management was also to increase further. Norwegian Lasse Berg Johnsen hammered home from distance after 70 minutes, and Thelin steered it in in pure ice hockey fashion in front of the goalkeeper.

Malmö tops the Allsvenskan with 18 points after a perfect start to the series. It was also pleasing for the southern Swedes that both Anders Christiansen and Anton Tinnerholm made a comeback on Sunday. Both have been out injured since May last year and were traded for AIK.

AIK and Berg are in 3rd place, seven points behind Bothheim’s team.

Most things went wrong for AIK. In overtime in the first half, former Molde stopper Benjamin Tiedemann Hansen was both clumsy and unlucky when he knelt the ball into his own goal after a corner.

Sebastian Nanasi made it 4-0 with a pearl shot while Thychosen was down. With such a comfortable lead, Bothheim and Nanasi were rested on the bench.
