AIK vs Kalmar FF
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Friends Arena.
Kalmar have finally ended their dismal run of four consecutive losses last weekend when they saw off fellow struggler AFC Eskilstuna 2-0 in front of their fans.
Roda Broder will have a very tough task to back up the fine display and make it back-to-back wins this weekend as they travel to Friends Arena to tackle the in-from second-placed AIK side.
Gnaget have been very tough to break down lately as they have kept five consecutive clean sheets in all competitions prior to a 1-1 draw with Sporting Braga in the first leg of their third qualifying round of Europa League on Thursday evening.
Rikard Norling’s men clinched two wins on the trot in Allsvenskan to overtake Norrkoping in the second position of the league’s standings.
Nanne Bergstrand’s men escaped the relegation zone thanks to a super important in over the league’s newcomers AFC Eskilstuna last Sunday.
Romarinho opened the scoring for Roda Broder to take his league tally to five goals so far in the season, while Pape-Alioune Diouf double the lead to set the final score in the dying minutes of the game.
AIK vs Kalmar: Head to head
AIK have been dominant in the most recent history of head to head clashes with Kalmar.
Gnaget have won three of their last four meetings with Roda Broder including the one played earlier this month when Henok Goitom bagged the only goal of the game in AIK’s win at Guldfageln Arena.
AIK vs Kalmar: Prediction
Kalmar have lost seven matches on the trot away from home and we don’t see them ending such a negative trend this Sunday against AIK.
