The prolific defender was handed a role to play in his team's starting XI following his outstanding performance for the team in their previous game and he was able to impress.
Victor Lindelof was superb at the back as he was at the heart of the defence line for the host which was instrumental in their two goals to nil scoreline at full time to make it a back-to-back clean sheet.
The first half of the game was such a balanced one between the two sides as there was nothing to separate them going into the half time break which ended goalless draw.
The host in the second half stepped up their game as they put up some more physical, tactical and technical displays which got them their opener in the 59th minute with a goal from Emil Forsberg via the spot to make it one nil.
In the 69th minute, the host were able to double their lead with a goal from Alexander Isak to make it two goals to nil.
After every other attempts from both sides to add more to the tally of the night, all were not successful as it ended two goals to nil at full time.
