AFC Eskilstuna vs GIF Sundsvall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Monday evening (18:00) game features two sides involved in a relegation battle in Allsvenskan. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Eskilstuna were comfortably beaten last time out in the league as they went down 3-0 at Östersunds. They can be encouraged by the fact that they at least created some scoring chances themselves though so too did their opponents. Sundsvall made it back-to-back victories as they came out on top at Sirius 1-0 in a closely fought battle. Eric Larsson was the goalscorer who enabled them to secure all three points in this tie. Sundsvall have won each of the last three competitive meetings between the pair including in the reverse fixture. That fixture came in early April and after Sasa Matic had given Eskilstuna the lead, Sundsvall struck back with one goal apiece from Peter Wilson, Lars Gerson and Markus Danielsson.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers have having real trouble splitting these two with the prices involved suggesting a real coin toss. I would tend to agree and as such would be looking elsewhere for my bets in this game. Under 2.5 goals is the outsider here but I think both teams will see this as a must win game and go all out for three points. Eskilstuna have seen four of their last five at home go over 2.5 goals so this looks worth an interest. Given that just 33% of Sundsvall goals have come in the first-half I think backing their highest scoring 45 minutes to be the second one looks a decent shout.
