AIK vs Helsingborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
AIK has been winless in the campaign for the past eight clashes (5L 3D), following a 1-1 draw on the road against Falkenbergs last time out in the league.
Only three of their eight winless matches came at home, which will be a comforting fact for Bartosz Grzelak ahead of returning home. Their last win in the league was also in a home match.
Helsingborg hit rock bottom in the league after picking up just 13 points from their 16 league appearances this season so far. They are still just one point behind the host.
Di Roe is on a two-game losing streak with just one win in their last nine fixtures in the schedule. They have only three losses in the same period and that trio comes within the recent four clashes.
They will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Sirius in the previous league clash.
AIK vs Helsingborg Head-to-head (h2h)

- Both teams have scored in all but two of the last 12 meetings.
- The host is unbeaten at home in the recent seven fixtures.
AIK vs Helsingborg Prediction
Despite their winless streak in the campaign lately, AIK has what it takes to make a comeback in the league with a win against the Red ones. Their unbeaten streak at home in their h2h meetings since the last decade backs the home wins in the encounter.
In their h2h meetings held here, both teams have scored in all the clashes since 2010 until the last match in which the host won with a 2-0 scoreline. With their ground advantage, the Gnaw is likely to land the first blow, and probably win either half in the encounter.
