AIK vs Shkendija
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 4 August 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Friends Arena.
AIK were unlucky the last season to have missed out on the title by the tiniest of margins in the Swedish top flight. Meanwhile, Shkendija had to settle for a 3rd place finish in the much weaker Macedonian league.
AIK were level on points with Malmo at the top of the table at the end of the campaign the previous season. But due to their inferior goal difference they had to settle with a second-place finish.
This surely was a painful miss for them and they will be determined to make amends this time around. It seems that they have begun on a great note right away and have set their sights on a deep run in the Conference League.
They are finding the back of the net in plenty and it also deserves to be mentioned that they have been on a good run at home for quite some time now.
Meanwhile, Shkendija were winless in 17 of their total 33 league games the previous season and all along they had let in goals in huge numbers.
Moreover, it also needs to be mentioned that they have been struggling on the road for quite some time now in 2022.
Judging these observations, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for AIK this Thursday in front of their home crowd.
