AIK vs Elfsborg Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (16:30) game features third placed AIK playing host to mid-table Elfsborg as they look to keep up the pace in the race for the Europa League. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. AIK continued their recent good form with a comprehensive thrashing of Häcken last time out winning 6-1 on the road. Rasmus Lindkvist and Daniel Sundgren grabbed a brace each while Per-Jonas Karlsson and Nicolas Stefanelli both grabbed one. Elfsborg were at the wrong of a 6-0 hammering at Malmö last time out in a game they shot themselves in the foot by gifting the Skåne side their first two goals which were both own-goals. These two sides last met in April 2017 with AIK picking up the victory on the road. The game ended 2-1 with Henok Goitom and Jesper Nyholm netting for AIK and Per Frick getting the goal for Elfsborg.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The price in the match bet to side with AIK is not a backable one considering they have won just one of their last four at home. They should win this game but I don’t think the match markets represent the best value. Rasmus Lindkvist has netted three times in his last three yet still goes off at double-figure odds to be the first goalscorer against a side who have shipped 13 goals in their last four so this looks a value bet. AIK have netted about 64% of their goals in the first-half so it might be worth a little interest on the opening 45 minutes to be their highest scoring half in this fixture.

AIK Preview

Going into this round of fixtures AIK sat in third place occupying one of the two Europa League spots available. They are on a good run of form in the league with three victories and four draws from their last seven. At home, they have struggled a little lately winning just one of their last four though they have also lost just two of their last ten. Eight of their last ten at their own ground have gone under 2.5 goals. Rasmus Lindkvist and Nicolas Stefanelli have both found the back of the net three times in their last three appearances. Just 12 of the 36 the team have netted in Allsvenskan this season have come at home.

AIK Team News

Stefan Ishizaki will miss the game through suspension while Chinedu Obasi is a doubt with a knee problem.

Elfsborg Preview

A point tally of 32 should be enough to keep Elfsborg up but given the form of the sides behind them means they cannot afford to relax just yet. Their recent form has not been great with just two points from their last four and just one victory in their last ten. On the road, they have not won any of their last five losing three of these including each of their last two. Each of their last six away matches have gone over 2.5 goals with four of the last six going over 3.5. Viktor Prodell has netted in two of his last four appearances though both goals came at home. Around 51% of the goals they have scored have come in the opening or closing 15 minutes of the game.

Elfsborg Team News

Joakim Nilsson and Jorgen Horn are both suspended for the game while Samuel Holmen (calf), Lasse Nilsson and Rasmus Rosenqvist (foot) are all doubtful.
