Home advantage has hardly worked its charm for AFC Eskilstuna this season as they sit at the bottom of the cluster with just two wins on home soil. Given that their last taste of success against GIF Sundsvall came nearly a decade ago as well, there is no reason for the hosts to have their hopes up on Friday.

AFC Eskilstuna vs GIF Sundsvall Prediction

Nemanja Miljanovic’s men are the worst side in the cluster and have shown no conviction whatsoever in turning things around. Their last clash on the road saw them salvage no more than a point against Kalmar on the road, while at home they were at the losing end of a 1-0 scoreline against table-toppers Malmo.

On the other hand, things have finally started to look up for GIF Sundsvall who have not tasted defeat in any of their last three matchups.

The visitors picked up wins against both Sirius and Kalmar, following which they forced Norrkoping to share the spoils with them in a fiercely fought eight-goal thriller. Furthermore, the away side have been faring well against this opponent in the previous meetings at this venue and have come out on top in four of their last five trips here.

Taking into account the dismal form that AFC Eskilstuna have been on, even in the comforts of their home, an easy win for GIF Sundsvall looks certain to be on the cards this week.

Additionally, with just four goals from their last four clashes here, the home team have hardly been a threat in the attacking third. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have not found the back of the net in any of their last three games in a running.

The away side have not been clinical in front of goal in their respective outings either and have scored just twice in their last four outings. As such, a low scoring affair is definitely looming large in this one.
