The Swede was the scorer of the winning goal and could have completed a stellar performance if he had been somewhat more lucid when defining. He forgave too much, he kept his rival alive and the line between being the hero of the match or the villain was too fine, although it was never broken.

Eibar was touched and, a minute later, caused the yellow to Oliveira, who was forced to grab him to prevent him from shooting towards the goal of Subotica’s goal.
He did it again at the edge of the break, but he got involved with the ball when he only had the Portuguese before him. Although for a clear occasion the one he had in 53, in a heads up against Dmitrovic in which he enjoyed all the time in the world to decide and did it fatal.
