If you had told Jens Gustafsson before the 2018 Allsvenskan season that his Norrkoping's side would be finishing seven points ahead of Malmo, he would've been rubbing his hands together ready to accept the championship trophy. But unfortunately his side only managed to finish as runners up with AIK leading the way losing just the one game last season - which was against Norrkoping. They got 65 points from their 30 games, and would in any other season surely be crowned as champions. But they will have to go again this season and hope to both topple AIK off their perch as well as making sure they can keep Malmo behind them for a second consecutive season. Both of those challenges are going to be extremely tough. The Norrkoping squad looks like one of the strongest in the league, there's no doubt about that. There's strength in depth as well as exciting and committed players that would walk into any starting eleven in all of the league's 16 sides. There hasn't been wholesale changes to the team who finished second last season, but some fine tuning as been taking place. The most exciting of those might well be winger Sead Haksabanovic who is just the sort of live wire and match winner that Gustafsson's team need when the chips are down.

Target


It will be hard for Norrkoping to better the 2018 campaign, but they should be quietly confident of at least going close to 65 points again with the team that they have. And should AIK or Malmo falter again in terms of form, then Gustafsson's side will surely be there to pounce. They just need to stay focused and show the same commitment they did last time around, when they were two agonising points away from the league title. They might not have the chance to be so close to glory again for some time though. Prediction: 3rd

Season Review
2018

№2: IFK Norrkoping

Norrkoping came so near but yet so far to the Allsvenskan title this season, but at least they made AIK work for the championship when at one point it looked like the Stockholm club would be running away with it. Once Malmo had such a dismal start to the season, it became clear quite quickly that the title was up for grabs this season. And Jens Gustafsson's side came pretty close in the end, doing everything the could in the latter stages of the season to take the crown. Unfortunately they fell short in the end. They couldn't have done much more in the autumn fixtures, inflicting defeats on Malmo and also being the only team to have defeated Rikard Norling's AIK too. They will rue dropped points against Sirius, and the rather inexplicable four points lost to relegated Trelleborgs who only managed to pick up 15 points in total. Those dropped points early in the season proved vital. There have been plenty of impressive performances throughout the season, with strikers David Moberg Karlsen and Kalle Holmberg both finding the net regularly. Simen Thern has been the heartbeat in the midfield, while Ian Smith pitched in with some solid defensive performances. But Simon Skrabb has perhaps been the most impressive performer this season, pitching in with seven goals and having a hand with most of what has gone right for Norrkoping this season. This was a really good season for Gustafsson's side, and definitely one to build on. Norrkoping are improving year by year, but there's definitely annoyance that they were unable to take the title in a season where Malmo started on the back foot. It is highly unlikely that they will be doing that again next season.
