AIK vs Kalmar
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 29 July 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Friends Arena, Solna.
16th Round of Swedish Allsvenskan is going to mark the half of the new season. The situation at the top is tight. There are three teams fighting for the leading role, and at the moment AIK from Solna have small advantage over the opposition. They collected 33 points from fifteen clashes, while gathering the best goal difference in the league of +18. This weekend see them host 8th placed Kalmar FF who are currently 8th. As expected, bookies marked the home side as big favorites for the win at 1.53.
AIK were undefeated for a long time until the trip to Denmark on Thursday night. They faced Nordsjaelland in Europa League and lost the match 1-0. Efficiency has been on a very high level for the team, and I expect that trend to continue. The record at Friends Arena is five wins and two draws, scoring 2.5 goals per game in front of the home crowd.
As for their opposition, Kalmar FF were in so much better position in terms of standings and form just a couple of weeks ago. Losses to Djurgarden and GIF Sundsvall at home pushed them to the middle of the table.
AIK vs Kalmar: Head-to-head
These two teams have played 33 duels in the last, 17 at this stadium.
AIK have advantage in terms of victories 14-10. The average number of goals seen in their duels is 2.20 per match.
The most recent head to head duel was played in Solna as well. Kalmar took surprising 1-0 win in July 2017.
AIK vs Kalmar: Prediction
As stated above visitors are not looking good lately, failing to score one single goal in the last two games. I am going to back AIK to win this match at 1.53 odds, while more adventurous punters can also try with HT and FT win.
As for the goals section, 2 or 3 goals in the match tip is looking appropriate.
