The latter are 8.00 fourth favorites in the UEFA Champions League winner odds for the 2020-21 season, and the Allsvenskan outfit will be keen to avoid another clash with the Ligue 1 champions, if they can return to this stage of the competition again next season.
BK Hacken have one of the best defensive records in the division, and credit must go to Benin City-born defender Godswill Ekpolo.
The 25-year old has helped his side keep six clean sheets in their first 16 outings, and with just 17 goals conceded so far, he's played a key role in an extremely well-drilled back-line which has enabled the Gothenburg club to remain inside the top six.
Nsima Peter, Alhaji Gero, and Gbenga Arokoyo are all likely to be involved in a relegation battle this season, but they undoubtedly have enough talent to remain in the Allsvenskan for another couple of seasons.
Further down the pyramid, there is also a wealth of Nigerian talent which is waiting to be unearthed.
Although it isn't one of the more high profile divisions in Europe, the Swedish top flight is proving to be a decent breeding ground for young Nigerian players who are looking to get some regular game-time under their belts.
It is surely only a matter of time before one or two of these talented individuals are given the seal of approval by Gernot Rohr.
