Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Tunavallen (Eskilstuna).
Two relegation-battlers take on each other in a clash for survival. The hosts need this win more as they are placed bottom-most in the table, while their counterparts are hanging by a thread over the cut-off line.
Eskilstuna has so far been able to return a single win from their fourteen attempts in the league and has conceded the second-most number of goals in the process.
While their sole win in the campaign came in front of the home crowd, the team has remained characteristically winless at home in their last five appearances.
Kalmar too has been going through such a streak in overall matches in the league, and along with their opposite number for the day, have scored the least number of goals in the competition. Once again, they have recorded the least number of goals in away ties.

AFC Eskilstuna vs Kalmar Prediction
Eskilstuna went winless in their last 14 games in a row and conceded two or more goals in three of their last five fixtures as well. At home, they again went winless in their last six games and failed to keep a clean sheet in eight of their last nine tries.
On the other hand, Kalmar was unbeaten in 11 of their last 15 clashes, and in six of their last nine on the road as well. Moreover, they have the mental boost of staying above the relegation line, at least by a whisker, while their rivals are dead-last in standings.
In addition, Kalmar won every game against this opponent except one and has never failed to score in an h2h encounter. Also, they have scored two or more goals in every such tie disregarding one. With these in mind, the away side comes as the stronger one this weekend.
But do keep in mind that the guests for the day have conceded goals in 14 of their last 16 road trips and two or more goals in two of their last three games. Importantly, every tie at this venue has had the BTTS option checked, and coupling the home advantage of Eskilstuna along with these, count on goals being scored at either end of the pitch.
