Sport: 18 late goals in the last five games was the highlight for the Stockholm club ahead of the match against an IFK team that is struggling even more than AIK.

On Monday, Henning Berg’s crew ended up losing both 0-1 and 1-2, but a rock-solid finish to the match ensured three important points. The victory lifts AIK to ninth place in the table. Eleven points separate Malmö at the top of the table.

An own goal by IFK’s Gustav Svensson sent AIK into the lead for the first time in the match. In overtime, two further goals followed, signed by Bosnian Dino Besirovic and Cypriot Ioannis Pittas.

Neither Eskil Edh nor Martin Ellingsen was in the AIK squad on Monday. Anders Trondsen was an unused reserve for IFK Göteborg.
