Ghanaian duo named in Swedish Allsvenskan team of the week

Ghanaian midfielder Michael Baidoo and striker Jalal Abdulai have been named in Sofascore's team of the week for their outstanding performance against AIK. 

Baidoo and Abdulai propelled Elfsborg to a resounding 6-1 victory over AIK in the Swedish Allsvenskan clash on Wednesday evening.

Baidoo showcased his prowess by both finding the back of the net and providing an assist, while Abdulai exhibited his scoring prowess with a brace, leaving AIK reeling in their wake.

The Borås Arena witnessed a masterclass from Baidoo, who opened the scoring with a brilliant right-footed shot from a difficult angle in the 51st minute before setting up Abdulai for his first goal just 6 minutes into the game.

Abdulai's contribution was equally impactful, with his left-footed shot in the 6th minute and a header in the 18th minute, both assisted by teammates, establishing Elfsborg's dominance early on.

Despite AIK boasting more possession and shots, Elfsborg's clinical finishing proved decisive, with Ahmed Qasem also adding his name to the scoresheet with a header just before halftime and a penalty conversion in the dying minutes.

With this emphatic victory, Elfsborg extends its head-to-head record over AIK to 8 wins. Baidoo and Abdulai continue to shine in the 2024 Swedish Allsvenskan, with Baidoo tallying three goals and two assists in eight appearances and Abdulai scoring twice in the same number of games.
