AIK vs KI Klaksvik
Europa League qualifier
Date: Thursday, 6th July 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena.
AIK failed to break the deadlock in the first leg played at Gundadalur as the Faroese side managed to keep thing tight at back and hold on to a goalless draw.
The Swedish giants will thus have to work hard to get the victory in front of their fans in the second leg set to be played this Thursday at Friends Arena.
Rikard Norling was certainly disappointed after the first match furious with his players after the first match.
It just extended the poor streak which now goes on to only a single win in last six matches after the weekend’s 2-2 home draw with Ostersunds.
The team currently sits at the fifth position in Allsvesnkan standings and Norling desperately needs a comprehensive win over KI to boost up the confidence ahead of the remaining challenges both in Allsvenskan and in Europa League.
The visitors are also in a decent competitive form as they share the very top of the standings in Meistaradeildin together with the defending champions Vikingur.
The team’s confidence has, however, been significantly shaken after a shocking 1-5 defeat to B93 on the home patch in mid June.
AIK vs KI Klaksvik: Head to head
Last Thursday’s game was the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams.
AIK vs KI Klaksvik: Prediction
We are going to witness a one-way street as the hosts will go strong looking to find an early goal from the very first minute of the second leg.
The Faroese side does not have the capacity of keeping it goalless two times in a row against a much stronger rival and we would not be surprised to see a demolishing win by three or more goals for the Swedish team here.
AIK vs KI Klaksvik: Betting Tips
The top bet will be Over 1.5 goals in the first half at the odds of 1/1.
