AIK vs Norrkoping
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 16th July 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK Time
Venue: Friends Arena, Stockholm.
With a win here and other results going their way, AIK could actually be in 2nd place in the league by the end of the weekend. However they look too far off the pace to win the Allsvenskan over current league leaders Malmo.
AIK in their magnificent 50,000 capacity stadium, used frequently by the Swedish national team have actually been quite average this season in front of their home fans. They have just 9 points from a possible total of 21 and have won just 1 game in their last 4.
But they have actually been better on the road this season and recent form has seen the club lose just 1 game in their last five and they have gone their last 4 matches unbeaten.
Norrkoping are in 2nd place and are six points behind leaders Malmo, they will need a win to keep the pressure up, that’s for sure. Sadly they seem to have fallen apart in recent weeks not only losing two games in a row to lower opposition but in those games they conceded a whopping 7 goals.
Away form is mixed where they have won 50% of games and in May they beat Malmo of all teams, but Norrkoping remain slightly unpredictable on the road where you are not sure which team will show up.
