Braga 1 – Trofense 0 (Superliga, April 24, 2009) Alan’s last minute winner earned Braga the three points.


Djurgarden 0 – Brommapojkarna 2 (Allsvenskan, April 24, 2009) Joakim Runnemo gave the visitors the perfect start by scoring in the opening minute and Philip Haglund doubled the lead midway through the second half. Brommapojkarna move up to third.
