Djurgarden survive relegation play-off

959142_medium1.jpgEleven-time Allsvenskan champions Djurgarden avoided relegation to the Swedish second tier on Sunday by overturning a two-goal deficit against Assyriska Foren in their play-off second leg.

Assyriska won the home leg 2-0 and preserved that advantage until the 52nd minute – when Jan Tauer put Djurgarden ahead.

Christer Youssef doubled the hosts’ advantage on the hour mark to take the game to extra time, and Mattias Jonson popped up with the all-important aggregate winner with just three minutes remaining.
