AFC Eskilstuna vs Sirius Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (14:00) fixture is a final round game in Allsvenskan and it features two sides with nothing to play for but pride. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Eskilstuna have already been relegated and played out a 1-1 draw with Halmstad last time out. They took the lead through Ludvig Ohman but were pegged back and that was where the scoring ended. Sirius had a tough time of it in their last game going down 4-0 to the champions of this season in Malmö FF. The result was never in doubt as they found themselves 2-0 down after 18 minutes and were probably quite content to keep the scoreline down to just four in the end. The reverse fixture between the pair came in early July and Sirius won a closely fought encounter 1-0 in front of their own fans. The goalscorer on that occasion was Moses Ogbu and the low scoring game means that from their last three meetings they have produced a total of just two goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The home side are the outsiders for this game and I think therefore look to be a little bit of value. The onus is a little more on the home side as they will find it harder to switch off in front of their own paying crowd while it is a little bit easier for an away team to coast through games especially one with as many injuries as Sirius. Take Eskilstuna who have taken more points in their last seven than their opponents to get something here with the security of the draw no bet. Sirius would be bottom of the league if things were decided on the half-time scores so it looks worth a little interest on Eskilstuna to be ahead at half-time here as they have scored in the opening 45 minutes in four of their last six.

AFC Eskilstuna Preview

After just one season in the top tier of Swedish football it will be back to the second tier (known as Superettan) for Eskilstuna after taking just 17 points from their last 25 fixtures. They are point behind Halmstad who are second bottom (though with a much inferior goal difference) and can get themselves off the bottom of the table with a win here and defeat for Halmstad. At home, they have won three games, drawn five and lost on six occasions though just two of these defeats have come in their last six. Seven of their last nine at their own ground have seen both teams find the back of the net. A lack of goals has been an issue as their total of 27 is the third lowest in the league and has been led by two players getting around two-thirds of their goals (Mo Buya Turay with nine and Omar Eddahri with eight). The defence has shipped 52 goals which is the joint second worst record in the division and they have kept just four clean sheets this season.

They have no registered injuries or suspensions

Sirius Preview

Given that they were just promoted last time out Sirius would have settled for tenth at the end of the season though they can rise as high as eighth and drop to 11th depending on the other results. They started the season well losing just three of their first 17 but from there it has been just two victories from their last 11. Away from home, they have been decent with five victories, four draws and five defeats though they are without a win in four on the road. Goals are a feature of their travels with each of their last five and eight of their last nine going over 2.5 goals. A key to their success has been goals with them having netted a sixth best 43 goals lead by Jesper Arvidsson who has scored seven times. They need to look to improve the defence next season which has shipped a fourth worst 50 goals including 28 in their last nine matches.

Sirius Team News

Kim Skoglund will miss the game through suspension while Johan Eiswohld (toe), Karvan Ahmadi (cruciate), Daniel Jarl (knee) and Moses Ogbu (broken ankle) are also missing through injury.
