Kalmar vs AFC Eskilstuna
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 23rd July 2017
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Guldfageln Arena.
AFC Eskilstuna managed a highly-important 2-1 win over the fellow strugglers Kalmar last weekend to narrow the gap between the two teams to only a single point at the very bottom of the Allsvenskan standings.
The league’s newcomers will be hoping to take advantage of the momentum and grab their second win over Kalmar within just seven days.
Roda broder made the change on the bench during the summer break, but the new head coach Nanne Bergstrand lost each of three matches since taking charge of the team.
Kalmar are especially vulnerable at the back which is the main reason for the five-loss streak.
Eskilstuna have also appointed a new head coach in the like of the Englishman Michael Jolley.
Unlike his colleague on the other side, Jolley managed to raise the level of the team’s game as the league’s newcomers showed strong displays in narrow losses to the top half teams Malmo FF and Sirius.
Kalmar vs AFC Eskilstuna: Head to head
Kalmar have won the lone previous head to head meeting played ten years ago in Svenska Cupen.
However, AFC Eskilstuna made it all square in their head to head tie thanks to Chidi Omeje and Ludvig Ohman who created a second-half comeback last Saturday at Tunavallen.
Kalmar vs AFC Eskilstuna: Prediction
Both sides are quite vulnerable at the back which is why we would not be surprised to see both Kalmar and AFC Eskilstuna on the scoresheet.
