Goteborg vs AIK
Date: Thursday, 27 September 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi (Goteborg).
AIK have the pole position in the battle for the Allsvenskan title. They are six points clear off the second-placed Norrkoping with just eight games left to play. They bagged a super-important 1-0 victory over direct rivals Hammarby at the weekend, pushing them down to third place in the league ladder.
Can Gnaget make it back-to-back victories on Thursday against the struggling Goteborg side away at Gamla Ullevi?
The visitors will be massive favourites to do so as Blavitt are on a dreadful run of form these days. Goteborg come into this on the back of a demolishing 4-1 loss to Hacken on the road on Monday.
AIK are winless in last four league matches, two of which they lost. Moving forward, Poya Asbaghi’s troops conceded six goals in last two outings, meaning Goitom, Elyounussi & company should have plenty of room to create up front on the occasion.
Goteborg vs AIK: Head-to-head
- The head to head stats is all levelled at 21 wins for each of the sides ahead of their 51st encounter.
- AIK won last two meetings with Blavitt, including the one in this term of Allsvenskan (2-0 at Friends Arena).
- Nevertheless, Gnaget lost each of last four away fixtures against Goteborg.
Goteborg vs AIK: Prediction
We are quite convinced the visitors should be able to ease past their rivals here in spite of a poor record they generally have in matches at Gamla Ullevi. AIK won six of last seven games across competitions. They see a huge opportunity to win the first title since 2009 being six points ahead of main challengers.
Moving forward, Rikard Norling’s men will be up against the struggling opponents who are winless in four outings and who shipped six goals in last two league matches. Goteborg are actually just five points above the drop zone after 22 rounds.
The away win is the only logical option and it cane backed at the odds of 1.70. You can alternatively back the red-hot striker Henok Goitom to score anytime for the visitors at 2.50 odds. The 34-year-old forward notched six goals in last seven appearances for AIK, including the difference-maker against Hammarby on Sunday.
