The Allsvenskan title race was blown open this weekend as leaders BK Hacken were knocked out of the top spot following a keenly contested game against Djurgarden.

Before the matchday, BK Hacken were top of the table in the Swedish top flight, three points more than the visitors.
Contrasting forms had seen Djurgarden close the gap on the leaders before Sunday’s game to just a win and they fought from behind to stun Bravida Arena crowd.
Nigeria’s Franklin Tebo was on the bench in the game – for the entire duration – and the hosts started well getting a penalty awarded in the first half.
Alexander Jeremejeff (34′) converted the spot kick to send the Per-Mathias Hogmo’s men into the lead at half-time.
But, their inconsistency in defence would rear its head again – they have not kept a clean sheet this season and have conceded 5 goals in the last four games.
It was only a matter of time and five minutes after the restart, the game was level. Zambia’s Emmanuel Banda scored to tie the game.
Djurgarden had the momentum and in the 63rd minute they turned the game around completely, Elias Anderson grabbing the eventual game-winner.
Meanwhile, 22 year-old Franklin Tebo has only featured for six minutes in the last five games – with game time hard to come by.
He has made five appearances this season as well, equaling the number of games he played last season as well.
Nonetheless, BK Hacken hold on to second spot, albeit, only just as they have a game in hand and are now tied on points with third placed AIK.
