There's been ups and downs for these two teams so far this season, occupying positions near the middle of the Superettan table so far. Here's the Akropolis - Brage latest:

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Akropolis are staying put; they can neither be promoted or relegated this season and are fighting only for positions. Brage are struggling to avoid relegation.
