After the long Olympic break, the Damallsvenskan started by completing rounds 11 and 12. Two matches that were postponed, because both LdB FC Malmö and AIK had several players in the U19 European Championships that were played in Turkey in July – and that Sweden won by beating Spain 1-0 after extra time.
Djurgården: Mia Jalkerud 88′
Malmö: Elin Rubensson 73′, Ramona Bachmann 84′
Umeå: Tuija Hyyrynen 36′, Lina Hurtig 47′, Emma Åberg Zingmark 87′
AIK: Susan Varli 87′
For Jitex this was their first point after four consecutive losses. Linköping with their new coach Martin Sjögren (the man who took LdB FC Malmö to two championships 2010 & 2011) had to play without Nilla Fischer who has become one of the most important members of her new team, especially since team captain Charlotte Rohlin is away due to an ACL. Only 213 spectators keep Jitex down on the attendance list – they went home without seeing a goal.
Malmö: Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir 2′, Katrin Schmidt 13′, Anja Mittag 19′, Katrine Veje 85′
That did not stop the team from winning easily against downside Djurgården which they had met four days before. This time though with goalkeeper Tove Engblom, only 17 years old. After 20 minutes the match was more or less over and Malmö played it home without the slightest problem.
KDFF: Therese Andersson 24′, Katrin Omarsdottir 60′, Susanne Moberg 67′, Elin Nilsen 86′
Tyresö: Linda Sembrant 14′, Marta 19′, Madelaine Edlund 35′, Kirsten van de Ven 57′, Vero Boquete 71′
Vittsjö: Kirsty Yallop
