AIK skipper Henok Goitom keeps banging in the goals as his club continues a firm march at the top of the Swedish football premiership.

The Eritrean international scored a 35th minute penalty in AIK’s 3-0 bashing of Hacken last weekend in the 20th round of the Allsvenskan to open up a five-point lead over second placed Hammarby.

Goitom now has a total of 10 goals, four shy of current leader Brazilian Paulinho Guerreiro of Hacken, and is being tipped as a possible golden boot winner this season. He has scored in AIK’s last five matches.

Senegal’s Aliou Badji was also on target. The 20-year-old attacker came on as a sub to score his 4th for this term as he and his Djurgaden teammates overcame rivals Hammarby 3-1.

Maic Sema of DR Congo extraction scored the opener in the 60th minute and set up the second three minutes later as Sundsvall destroyed Sirius 4-0.

In the Superettan, which is just one tier below the Allsvenkan, Christian Kouakou of Ivorian ancestry fired home the only goal as 5th placed Brage collected a 1-0 win over Frej while Ghanaian striker Mamudo Moro scored for leaders Helsingborg in a 1-1 draw against Degefors.

Landskrona and Norrby, both strugglers, played to a 1-1 draw with Ghanaian frontman Karim Sadat cancelling out a first half strike from Abdelrahman Saidi of Algerian parentage.

Nigerian Onyedikachuwu Nnamani scored both goals as Eskilstuna beat GAIS 2-1 to stay 3rd on the table.

In Denmark, the Supeliga saw a single African goal. Senegalese hitman Dame N´Doye pounced early to put FC Copehagen ahead in a 2-0 victory over Esberg.

Ivorian Franck Boli rammed in two goals for Stabek in tough 3-3 draw against Sandefjord in Norway’s top football league, Eliteserien. Boli has nine goals to his credit this season.
