Three minutes after the home win against Elfsborg, Malmö FF star Anders Christiansen injured himself and had to replace it with a sensation in the back of his thigh.
We’ll see how you feel in 48 hours. The problem is that there are four days until the next match (Orebro on Monday), the midfield engine says after the 2-1 win over Elsburg and continues:
I am not worried that a major laceration takes 6-8 weeks.
EC – dream of a boy in danger?
Earlier this week, Christiansen spoke of it would be the boy’s dream to be selected for a European Championship match with Denmark. National team captain Kasper Hajulmand ruled out his 26-man squad on Tuesday and the Danes will play three group matches at home in Parken in Copenhagen.
I don’t know if I am myself or not. It’s hard to say. I’m optimistic and we’re doing everything we can to be ready for Monday. If I play on Mondays, I obviously qualify. If the injury is within a week, it is as calm as possible.
In overtime first half came MFF’s next star blow. Ola Toivonen then faded into the grass in pain after he got into a duel in midfield and the striker was substituted in the first half. At present, it is not clear how severe a Toivonen infection is.
Malmo then took a 1-0 lead with Jo Inge Berget hovering over the ball after Anel Ahmedhodzic nodded Jonas Knudsen’s long throw on the post.
– That was nice. Joe Inge Birgit says about the goal in the 27th minute, it was only just to put him there.
This isn’t the first time MFF has scored from Knudsen’s long throw.
– We really got into it. It was good to score again, says Birgit.
Per Frick equalized in the 50th minute, and ten minutes later Jacob Ondrejka hit the post for Borasljit. Three minutes later, the winning goal fell to MFF’s favor when Veliko Permanchevic fired from a low distance behind Elsburg goalkeeper Tim Running until 2-1.
Now Malmö leads Allsvenskan by one point over runner-up Djurgården, but the Scanians have played one more game than the top competitors.
– We just look at ourselves. We are very happy if we can beat Orebro. Then we have 20 points (in nine matches) before the first half ends. The only bad match was the Stockholm match (0-3 against Djurgarden). You can lose a match, but the way we lose can be dissatisfied, says Anders Christiansen.
Malmö, however, has not kept a clean sheet in any competitive game this season.
Obviously, it’s always a good idea to keep our windows clean, but it’s not that we just go around and think about it. But security is not there now. “At the moment, we can’t say it’s very difficult to score,” says Jo Eng Birgit.
The last time Elfsburg lost, they went 2-0 up and lost 2-3 at home to Halmstad and had only four points in their last five matches. After the first half played away against Malmö, Boråslaget withdrew after the break and would have had to leave Skåne on points.
We would have liked to have one point with us, but I think Malmö is a lot more straightforward when they get their sites. That’s the difference at the end, says Elfsborg coach Jimmy Tillin.
