AIK vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Thursday, 6 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
The home side is winless in four league games on the trot. They have lost five of their 12 matches so far which is the most games lost by any team in this year’s competition.
The main issue this year has been shabby defence which has given away 17 goals already while the attack has been lazy too. The team has to improve in every aspect of the game. They are coming into this match after the disappointing draw with the team at the bottom of the table- Kalmar.
The visitors have started the season exceptionally well. The team that finished 8th last year is currently third in the table. From the 12 games they have 5 wins and one defeat. All they have to do is to keep a better back line in matches, so they have fewer draws in the rest of the season.
AIK vs Elfsborg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Gnaw is unbeaten in last nine games against this opposition.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in six of those nine games across all venues.
- Both sides found the back of the net in six matches during that spell.
- The hosts have a seven-game winning run against these rivals at this ground.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in six of those seven games.
- In five of those games both sides managed to score as well.
AIK vs Elfsborg: Prediction
The home team has the clear upper hand in head to head matches at this ground. The visitors have not defeated the Gnaw for over five years now.
Even though the home team is in poor form right now, they are powerful enough to get at least a point out of this game. Since Elfsborg is on a two-match drawing run, I think we can see a draw on Thursday as well.
IN majority of their previous meetings here, the final score had goals from both teams. The home team is giving away more goals than they scored so far.
The Yellow Ones are also not been good defensively in this season. So I am backing a draw with both teams scoring goals.
