AIK vs Falkenberg
Date: Monday, 20 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Solna).
Defending champions finally managed to arrest the slump in form as a thread of three successive league wins brought them into the contest for the very top of the standings. Rikard Norling’s men have been just fascinating in May. They lost the last league tie in April 3-0 away at IFK Goteborg, but responded in the best of fashions, clinching three consecutive wins since.
Two of these victories came away from home against Djurgarden and Helsingborg. AIK will really have a phenomenal opportunity to extend the winning run on Monday evening. They host rock-bottomed Falkenberg and anything but a comprehensive victory by at least two goals difference for the hosts would be a serious upset here.

AIK vs Falkenberg: Prediction
The visitors returned to the top flight of Swedish football after three years. They, however, immediately started to feel its strength as Hans Eklund’s men hold the rock-bottom of the league ladder with just five points from nine rounds so far.
Falkenberg boast both league’s weakest defensive and attacking records. They fell 0-3 at home to Djurgarden on Wednesday and really do not have anything to hope for coming into Monday’s tie against red-hot AIK.
The hosts also won three on the bounce at Friends Arena. They conceded only two goals in the process. AIK should really have an easy job defending their goal against such opposition. Gnaget’s clean sheet is paid at 1.83 odds and it is a must-take bet based on everything written above. You can also back the hosts to win by at least two-goal difference at 2.20.
