AIK vs Norrkoping
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Tuesday, 25 June 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
Both teams are actively on unbeaten runs. AIK particularly so, as along with topper, Malmo, they are the only ones to avoid a defeat in the last five match-days in the whole league.
The last day, Stockholm took advantage of their home status against Hammarby and scored two quick-fire goals in the 17th and 19th minutes to put early pressure on the opponent. Despite the visitors trying hard to reduce the lead, the home defense did their job in protecting the two-goal lead.
Norrkoping, meanwhile, had to sweat to find a win against the lowest-placed Eskilstuna the last match-day. The scoreline stood at 0-0 till late into the first half, before the visitors found the back of the net. The home team did try their best to get back into the game once the latter half commenced, but the guests added one more, once again late into the half, and held the score till the end.
