Hammarby vs AIK: Preview and Predictions

Hammarby vs AIK
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 20 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena, Stockholm.

Top two sides in Sweden are set to take on each other in the most interesting tie of the Matchday No 10 on Sunday afternoon at Tele2 Arena. AIK’s visit will provide a serious test to Hammarby’s incredible run at the start of the season, but a win for the hosts might likely kill the entertainment as it would push them nine points clear off their main title challengers.

Pa Dibba has been the main catalyst to the amazing start notching seven goals in nine appearances for Hammarby so far in the season. The Gambian striker completed a hat-trick in the recent home win over GIF Sundsvall, while he was also on target in a highly-important 3-2 victory over the reigning champions Malmo FF on Wednesday.

Maintaining such an amazing form on Sunday will, however, be a huge task for his as well given that Hammarby are about to take on the league’s best defensive line as AIK shipped no more than five goals so far in the season.

Hammarby vs AIK: Head-to-head

  • The head to head stats speak in AIK’s favour with Gnaget winning 16 and losing 9 of 34 encounters against Hammarby.
  • Nevertheless, AIK are winless in last three meetings with Bajen who won one in the process.
  • Five of last seven head to head affairs ended with less than three goals scored.

Hammarby vs AIK: Prediction

It will be very interesting to see how the most solid defensive line in Allsvenskan will handle the red-hot attacking line on Hammarby’s here. The hosts have scored an incredible 24-goal tally in nine games so far in the season netting twice or more times in each of fixtures along the way. Knowing that Bajen continued the amazing attacking form in mid-week’s tie with the champions Malmo FF (3-2 win), we have to take the sky-high 2.62 odds offered for the hosts to net two or more goals past AIK on Sunday.

The value is also decent in backing the red-hot Hammarby not to lose at home at the odds of 1.55. The head to head stats also goes in the favour of this pick as the hosts are undefeated in last three H2H encounters with Gnaget.
