Division 1 Norra:

  • Carlstad United 2-0 Forward

Carlstad United BK Football Club had a perfect start to the 2019 season with a 2-0 home win against Forward in the Swedish Division 1 Norra duel played at the Karlstad Stadium.

Ugandan goal scoring machine, Alexis Bbakka scored the two goals on the colourful evening, as he marked his debut, upon transferring from Umea.

Both of Bbakka’s goals arrived in the second half.

The first, a wonderful loob came in the 49th and a well tapped effort which happened to be the match winner on 72nd minutes to give manager David Ekelund a perfect start to the season.

Match day two will take place on Saturday, 13th April 2019 when Akropolis.

Linkoping City, Karlsund, Sandviken, Carlstad United BK and Akropolis, Nykoping and Umea all have one point apiece after a successful match day one.

On Friday, 19th April, 2019 Carlstad United, which is also affiliated to  Värmlands Fotbollförbund will host Sollentuna.

Bbakka’s diligent agent Jens Leidewall was among the over 800 spectators who watched the exciting game.

Leidewall is hopeful that Bbakka who scored 11 goals and 11 assists at Umea has a bright future at Carlstad United BK.


It was an impressive performance and colourful debut. Alexis Bbakka has a lot of potential and I predict a great time at Carlstad United BK Football Club.
