Danish Super Liga

Aalborg made it two wins from two in the fledgling Super Liga season after coming from behind to beat Esbjerg 2-1 at the Blue Water Arena.

AaB followed up an opening-day win over reigning champions FC Copenhagen with three more points but they had to do it the hard way after Emille Lyng opened the scoring in the 20th minute.

Kasper Risgard forced the visitors back into the game in the 52nd minute and, shortly after the hour mark, Esbjerg defender Peter Ankersen put through his own net to complete a second-half turnaround.

Aalborg sit second behind Midtjylland on goal difference while Esbjerg are fourth with three points.

Swedish Allsvenskan

Lowly Halmstad and Syrianska played out a clash befitting of their league placings tonight as they drew 1-1.

Bottom side Syrianska opened the scoring through Sebastian Rajalakso with nine minutes on the clock and the action was sparse after that until substitute Marcus Antonsson scored with 11 minutes left.

Syrianska are bottom of the ladder with just 10 points from 17 games, while Halmstad are four points better off.

Russian Premier League

Krasnodar registered their first win of the new Premier League season today as they recovered from a goal down to beat Amkar Perm 2-1.

Two goals in three second-half minutes did the trick for Slavoljub Muslin's men, with Joaozinho scoring a 47th-minute penalty and Marcio Abreu netting the winner not long after that.

Prior to that, Slovakia international Martin Jakubko had given Amkar a 29th-minute lead that they would ultimately be unable to preserve.
