AIK vs Helsingborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 20 July 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
Stockholm is giving a tough chase to Malmo for the top-most spot. At present, the former is lagging behind by four points, and should they get a lucky break in the next few match-days, could take control of the pole spot.
The team’s one great advantage in this game is surely their home status, where they have performed really well. So far, the squad has experienced just one loss in front of their home crowd and is welcoming a group that has registered one league win on the road this campaign.
Helsingborg has failed to impress even their hardcore fans with their away stats. Till point, they have been able to return just five goals from their seven road trips.
