GIF Sundsvall vs AIK Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Thursday evening (18:00) game features two sides at opposite ends of the Allsvenskan table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. GIF Sundsvall made it back-to-back league victories last time out with a 1-0 success at Sirius at the weekend. The game ended 1-0 with an Eric Larsson goal the difference between the two sides on that occasion. AIK continued their recent good form with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Halmstad at the weekend. Nicolas Stefanelli grabbed a brace in that game while Henok Goitom and Rasmus Lindkvist fired in one each. The recent head-to-heads have been dominated by AIK who have not lost a competitive game to Sundsvall since April 2003. The reverse fixture this season came at the end of April and it finished goalless.

Betting Tips and Predictions

AIK are strong favourites here given their greater form though I could not be backing them at such a short price especially as Sundsvall also need the victory to further boost their survival hopes. Given that 66% of their goals this season have come in the second-half I like the look of the first 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half for AIK. Linus Hallenius is in good form for the home side with four in his last five and he looks worth a play to net at any point in this fixture.

GIF Sundsvall Preview

Sundsvall sat 12th in the table following their success on Monday night a result that put them five points above a relegation play-off and 12 above an automatic relegation slot. Victory last time out made it two straight wins in the league and three in all competitions. At home, it has been a mixed bag with two wins, one draw and two defeats from their last five in the league. 11 of the 18 goals they have netted this season have come in front of their own fans though just two of their clean sheets have done so. Linus Hallenius is their leading scorer with seven goals this season with the Swedish attacker having netted four in the last five. Around 44% of the goals they have scored have come in the 15 minutes before or after the interval.

Romain Gall and Noah Sonko Sundeberg will miss the game through suspension while Tommy Naurin and Marcus Danielsson (both knee) are doubts. Lars Cristian Krogh Gerson (hip), Erik Granat and Filip Tägström (both cruciate) are long-term absentees.

AIK Preview

Going into this round of midweek fixtures AIK sat in fourth place which is just one point and one place below a Europa League qualifying slot. They are in good form with no defeat in their last five and just two in their last 13. On the road, the form has been excellent with six victories, two draws and just one loss from their last nine. 18 of the 30 league goals that they have netted have come in games on their travels. Henok Goitom is their leading scorer this season with five goals though his goal last time put to an end a barren spell of seven without scoring. 63% of AIK goals have come in the first-half with 40 in the opening thirty minutes.

Chindeu Obasi (knee) and Daniel Mushitu Mwinkeu (unknown) is rated doubtful.
