Sirius vs Eskilstuna
Date: Monday, 8 April 2019
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Studenternas IP (Uppsala).
Both Sirius and AFC Eskilstuna got off to dream starts to the new Allsvenskan campaign. The hosts, who barely saved the elite class status last season, stunned Kalmar 0-2 on the road last weekend. They have a nice opportunity to build on such performance and maintain the perfect record after second round tie which bring them clash with recently-promoted AFC Eskilstuna.
The visitors thus made it only a one-year spell of loan in the second division of Swedish football as they instantly regained the top flight status thanks to a victory over Brommapojkarna in the promotional/relegation play-offs in late-November last year. They came back after losing the first leg 0-1 on the home patch to beat counterparts 1-2 on the road and advance to the elite tier on an away goal rule (2-2 on aggregate).
Sirius vs Eskilstuna: Head-to-head
Sirius will rely heavily on the head to head tradition as they were truly the dominant force in a short history of clashes against AFC Eskilstuna.
Blasvart won 12, drew 6 and lost only 2 of 20 encounters with Eskilstuna.
Sirius were particularly impressive at Studenternas IP where they claimed 7 wins, 3 draws and just 1 defeat in 11 ties against Eskilstuna (16-7 goal difference).
Sirius vs Eskilstuna: Prediction
However, this will be anything but a one-way street for the hosts judging by a phenomenal display the team led by Nemanja Miljanovic produced last weekend. AFC Eskilstuna saw off Djurgarden 3-1 at home. They also showed stellar form at the start of the year making it all the way to Svenska Cupen final thanks to wins over Halmstad and AIK in the knockout stage.
The visitors bagged at least a goal in all of last seven matches (including one friendly) and we expect them to find the back of the net at least once here against Sirius. Both Teams To Score is our main betting recommendation for this clash.
