The win took Randers to the summit of the Danish League.

A goal from Patrick Kpozo in the 38th minute gave Ostersunds the lead heading into half-time. Amoo came on for Hammarby in the 59th minute to see if he could salvage something for his side, but he could only get a yellow card in the 65th minute.
