Norrkoping are going through a difficult phase and things got worse last weekend after a heavy 1-3 home loss to Elfsborg. The teams now lost four games on the bounce and got dismantled from the title chase.
However, the home form remains good as their defeat to Elfsborg is the first at Ostgotaporten in seven games. So far, the White and Blues won 5, drew 2 and lost 2 from their 9 home games this season.
AFC Eskilstuna are relegation bound and there is no improvement to their situation as we reached half way mark of the season. The team remain at the foot of the table with 1 win from their 17 matches, drew 4 and lost 12.
It is not a surprise that AFC are yet to win an away game this season. They lost 8 of their 9 road games so far, with a point earned at Goteborg at the start of the season.
