AIK vs IFK Gothenburg Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Monday evening (18:00) fixture will have an impact on the race for the Europa League in Allsvenskan. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. A useful looking point in their last league game against Malmö has kept AIK on track for the Europa League. That game ended in a goalless draw but it was a match that was high on chances created. Göteborg saw their two-game unbeaten come to an end last time out as they lost 1-0 at home to Östersunds. The result was probably about fair as the visitors just shaded possession and shots on target. The reverse fixture between the pair came in August and Göteborg won that one 2-1 thanks to goals from Soren Rieks and Mikael Boman with Amin Affane netting the other goal. The result means it is now five unbeaten for Göteborg in head-to-heads.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that AIK top the half-time league table and Göteborg as low as 11th I recommended getting on the home side to be ahead going into the break. This is much more appealing than the match prices on offer for them to win the game given they have won just six of 14 at their own ground but have been behind just once going into the interval. AIK have kept clean sheets in three of their last five and each of their last two and I think they must be worth an interest to do so here against opponents who have blanked in two of their last four.

AIK Preview

It is now ten league games without defeat for AIK with five victories and five of them ending all-square. They sit in second place currently and are two above Djurgården in third and five above Östersunds in fourth. At home, their form has been solid if unspectacular with six victories, five draws and three defeats from 14 played. The 11 goals conceded gives them the joint best home defensive record but 19 netted is quite low for a team in their position (Djurgården for instance who are one place below them have netted 28 home goals): Defence is where AIK have excelled this season having shipped just 20 goals which is the best in the division by a margin of five. AIK are fast starters and if the league had been settled on results in the opening 45 minutes they would have been champions.

AIK Team News

Daniel Sundgren and Haukur Heidar Hauksson will miss out through suspension.

IFK Gothenburg Preview

Defeat last time out put to an end a run of two straight victories but before that Göteborg had gone six without a victory in the league. Going into this round of fixtures they were placed eighth with their tendency to draw (ten times) costing them a higher place. On the road, their form has been decent with five victories, two draws and seven defeats from their 14 played. In four of their last five matches on their travels both teams have found the back of the net. 16 of their 28 played in Allsvenskan this season have featured exactly two or three goals. Around 66% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the second-half with 22% in the final 15 minutes.
