AFC Eskilstuna vs Elfsborg Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture will have an important bearing on the relegation battle in Allsvenskan. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Eskilstuna are in relegation trouble and went down 3-0 at Häcken in their last outing. Their cause was not helped by playing over 60 minutes with ten-men following the dismissal of Mo Buya Turay. Elfsborg secured their survival with a 2-1 victory over GIF Sundsvall thanks to a goal each from Issam Jbali and Lasse Lars Nilsson in a game that also saw them have Anders Randup dismissed. The reverse fixture between these two came on May 18th and it was Elfsborg who came out on top winning this one 2-1. Eskilstuna took the lead through a Ferid Ali penalty only for goals from Joakim Nilsson and Lasse Lars Nilsson to give Elfsborg all three points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given the must win nature of this game I think a little bet on Eskilstuna looks the sensible play. Elfsborg have been poor on the road recently with three straight defeats while the hosts have won two of their last four and are in trouble not because of recent form but the way they started the season. The market suggests that a goal will come before 25:00 which is just a little too short, I am sure this will be a goal fest but given that just a quarter of the visitors goals have come in the first 30 minutes and a third of the hosts so the value comes from taking this on.

AFC Eskilstuna Preview

A run of seven points from three had given Eskilstuna some hope of a great escape but defeat last time out has put the brakes on this. They have three to play and are six behind a relegation play-off (with a weaker goal difference) and eight behind automatic safety. At home, they have lost just one of their last five though they have won just three in front of their own fans this season. A feature of games at their own ground is both teams scoring which has happened in eight of the last 11. A lack of goals has been an issue for them this season with just 24 netted which is the joint second lowest in the league while the 48 conceded is the third worst record in the division this season.

Elfsborg Preview

Victory last time out put to an end a run of five without a victory for Elfsborg who sit in tenth place on 35 points with three games to go. It has been a mixed season for them which has seen them slide off a little towards the end of the campaign. On the road, they have struggled with no victory in their last six and defeats in each of their last three. Their matches on their travels are entertaining affairs with a remarkable 51 goals produced from 13 fixtures an average of almost four per game. The 50 goals they have conceded this season has them as the worst defence though the 46 scored is the third best attack. Naturally they are a dream for overs backers with 21 of 27 going over 2.5 and ten going over 3.5 goals.
