Sirius vs AIK
Date: Wednesday, 2nd May 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Studenternas IP (Uppsala).
Sirius had an impressive campaign last year, their first ever season in the Allsvenskan. Their finished 7th back then, but their start to the 2018 season is nothing less than uninspiring as they sit in the relegation zone with 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses from 5. Now, 4 of those games are on the road, still they managed to score just 2 goals so far and none in the last three. To make things worse, they have a numbers of players out with injuries.
AIK often play second fiddle to Malmo, but they have a good chance to mount a serious title challenge this season. This is down to Malmo’s poor start to the campaign as the champions sit at 10th on the log with 8 points. Meantime, AIK bagged 14 points from equal number of games and are unbeaten with 4 wins and 2 draws. Their two away games so far are draws and a need a win at Sirius to prove they are serious title contenders.

Sirius vs AIK: Prediction
Sirius are marred by injuries and are struggling for goals. We are yet to see their best this season and they are coming across the worst opponent to make a serious comeback.
AIK have the momentum in the early days of the campaign and they need to win here to maintain the healthy lead over direct title rivals Malmo. The team from Stockholm are without a doubt the best defense in the league and they could have no problems to bag three points on Wednesday.
