AIK vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
AIK has carved a space for themselves in the podium and has been justifying their spot with their consistent performances. They were unbeaten in four of their last five games and held their end against toppers Malmo in this stretch too.
At home, they have held themselves to an even higher standard, and have lost just a single game. But one thing that concerns fans is their inability to find the back of the net in an improved frequency.
Opponents Elfsborg may have a spot in the mid-table, but they are on the downslope as per their current form. The team has not recorded a win in the last five attempts in the league. On the road, they have registered just a single win until this point.
Day by day, the playoff spots are moving away from their periphery, and a sudden reversal of fortune would be required to avoid a last-minute rush as the season-end approaches.
