AIK vs Brommapojkarna
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 22 July 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena, Solna.
AIK managed to survive the Shamrock Rovers threat on Thursday evening and they are ready to return to domestic affairs on Sunday with the home tie against Brommapojkarna.
Rikard Norling expected to see a dominant showing from his lads in mid-week reverse fixture with the Irish outfit, but Shamrock shockingly won the second leg 0-1 in the regular time, forcing the tie into extra-time where the Argentinian substitute Nicolas Stefanelli bagged a goal to send the Swedes into the second qualifying round.
Gnaget will play Danish Nordsjaelland in a true Scandinavian derby there. The match is scheduled for next Thursday, but Norling and his men still have a job to do in Allsvenskan in between Europa League adventures.
Maintaining the fine domestic form is an imperative for the hosts who have a huge opportunity to challenge the title after finishing the previous term runners-up to Malmo FF.
AIK are still the only team without a loss in the league and they are three points clear off Hammarby at the top of the standings after 14 rounds of the competition.
AIK vs Brommapojkarna: Head-to-head
AIK were just brutal towards Brommapojkarna in the history of their head to head matches.
Gnaget won 11 and drew 1 of 12 meetings with Brommapokjkarna.
Believe it or not, AIK bagged at least four goals in all of last four head to head games with this opposition.
The previous H2H game took place four years ago when the visitors last featured the top flight of the Swedish football.
AIK vs Brommapojkarna: Prediction
The visitors took just 10 points in 13 matches and they will be up for a huge survival battle until the end of the season.
They lost three and drew one of last four league games and they are now only two points above the rock-bottomed Sirius.
The Portuguese manager Luis Pimenta has huge troubles with his team’s inability of converting chances in front of the opposition’s goal.
Brommapojkarna have the weakest attacking record I the entire league after scoring just 8 goals in 13 affairs so far.
Given they are up against the division’s strongest defensive line, we have no other option but to go with the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 1.57. You can also try with AIK to win by two or more goals at the odds of 1.72.
