AIK vs Sirius
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Friday, 27 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Friends Arena (Solna).
AIK look as genuine title contenders, eat least after the opening five rounds of play in Allsvenskan. They sit second with a point deficit to leaders Hammarby, but we have to respect the fact thy won three and drew two so far in spite of the rather complicated schedule they’ve had at the start of the campaign.
Gnagar Svinen are yet to drop points at home, though, where easily won each of three ties against Dalkurd, Djurgarden and IFK Goteborg without conceding a single in the process. Rikard Norling’s side will have a nice chance to maintain such an impressive record on Friday evening when Sirius come to visit Friends Arena in the capital.
The visitors, who had a successful campaign last season when they came sixth, look to have troubled matching previous term’s results at the start of the new season. They took just four points in four games so far and they failed to find the net at all in last two league ties.
AIK vs Sirius: Head-to-head
AIK were super dominant in four head to head games with Sirius.
AIK won each Gnagar Svinen won each of these four conceding just one goal along the way.
The previous clash from August last year saw a demolishing 1-4 victory for AIK away at Studsenternas IP.
AIK vs Sirius: Prediction
Sirius scored just two goals so far in the season and we see a nice opportunity for AIK to maintain their superb defensive form and make it four straight games without conceding in front of the home fans. Additionaly, Sirius bagged just one in four H2H games with AIK. You can have the hosts to keep things quiet at the back at the odds of 1.83 here.
AIK are obviously massive favourites based on both the form at the start of the campaign as well as the head to head trend in games against Sirius. The home win can be regarded as a banker bet at the 1.40 odds, while braver tipsters can definitely try with the handicap pick as well.
