  • AFC Eskilstuna 1 -3 Umea

Uganda Cranes striker David Alexis Bbakka was on target once again for the second successive weekend during the Swedish division two league on Saturday, 27th June 2020.

Bbakka scored the third goal in Umea’s 3-1 victory on the road to AFC Ekilstuna at the Tunavallen stadium in Eskilstuna city.

Francis Junior Baptiste gave the home side a slim 1-0 lead by the half time break with the day’s opener on 12 minutes.

AFC Ekilstuna were reduced to 10 men when Ismet Lushaku  was given marching off orders by referee Johan Krantz with 5 minutes to close business of the opening stanza.

The first caution for Lushaku had come on the half hour mark.
