Kalmar vs AIK
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 6 July 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Guldfågeln Arena (Kalmar).
Once again the Allsvenskan produces a fixture between teams from either end of the table. Hosts Kalmar is winless in their last five match-days, and could potentially be placed in the relegation zone if they keep up this charade.
They have failed to record goals even at a minimal rate of one per tie, and in spite of having the home advantage for six games, could deliver just one victory.
With AIK, one of the best in the country, and a serious contender for the European spots coming visiting, home fans will be wary of what the outcome would turn out to be.
The guests might have even more reason to produce a good performance, as they have stumbled a bit in recent match-days, and if they are to ensure their stay at the top, significant points will have to be posted on the board.
Kalmar vs AIK Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the last five games saw AIK taking the three points.

- The last Kalmar won at this venue was six years back.
- AIK has conceded just a single goal from their last four visits here.
Kalmar vs AIK Prediction
AIK was unbeaten in eight of their last nine games, and in 35 of their last 39. They have been consistent throughout this season, disregarding the minor stumbles they met the last few match-days. Through this stretch, they had winning runs of five and four fixtures each, and an unbeaten streak of 15 ties.
Kalmar, meanwhile, could produce just four wins from their last fifteen attempts and failed to score in four of their last seven. At home, they were winless in five of their last seven tries, and importantly, against this opponent, they have been winless here in the last six years.
In fact, in the last decade, the hosts could produce just two wins in front of their home crowd against this set of visitors.
Going on, AIK has one of the best defenses in the entire competition, and have let in goals at a rate less than one per game. Moreover, with their spot in the top-three threatened, we can count on the favorites to raise their level, and put in a great display.
