AFC Eskilstuna vs IFK Norrkoping
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Friday, 12th May 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Tunavallen, Eskilstuna.
The league’s newcomers are off to a rough start among the elite as they took only three points from seven opening matches.
AFC Eskilstuna are yet to celebrate their first win in the new campaign. They will hardly get it this Friday when they host Norrkoping in the first game of the Matchday No 8.
Per Olsson will have a very tough task to keep AFC Eskilstuna in the elite. The team will come in the game with one of the strongest teams in the country after losing three on the trot.
Eskilstuna allowed as many as eight goals netting only one during the poor run in the matches with Ostersund, Hammarby and Jonkopings Sodra.
Norrkoping were off to a slower start of the season as they suffered three straight losses after winning the first game of the campaign.
Jens Gustafsson’s side managed to recover as they took eight points from four following game and they will have a nice chance to maintain the fine form this Friday when they travel to Tunavallen.
AFC Eskilstuna vs Norrkoping: Head to head

AFC Eskilstuna vs Norrkoping: Prediction
The visitors are massive favourites and we’d be shocked to see any other scenario but a convincing win for Gustafsson’s men.
Norrkoping kept clean sheets in two of their last three league fixtures and the value will be huge in taking them to keep their net untouched for the ninth straight time in clashes with Eskilstuna.
