Last round was a new disappointment with three losses and this starting to look like a rollercoaster. But, overall the stats of the season looks good. This round is quite tricky since there is a tight schedule for a lot of the teams. Some teams also miss players because of the Olympics.
MALMÖ v AIK
AIK comes from a really tight schedule and lost against Panathinaikos in the Europa League. Malmö had a mid week friendly against Wolfsburg and lost 1-0, but there should be fresher legs in the home team.
Malmö have a good situation in the squad with Behrang Safari ready to play. Pa Konate is with the national team in the Olympics, but Malmö have good back up.
It’s a heavy period with a lot of games for AIK, and now a long trip to Malmö. Dickson Etuhu and Alexander Isak are back from injuries, but neither of them should be in the starting eleven.
This is a real clash of the titans, but the games in Malmö between the teams is normally pretty locked. Malmö will be the more offensive side here, but I think that AIK have been pretty solid. The coach of AIK, Rikard Norling hasn’t lost yet in the Allsvenskan and the guests will be happy with a draw.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Under 2.75 at 1.85
ELFSBORG v HÄCKEN
This game has a lot of potential since both of the teams prefer the offensive game. Elfsbor aren’t in a perfect situation with their squad, but neither do Häcken and a lot of players who normally don’t play will be motivated here.
Key midfielder Rohdén is sold. Lundqvist and Nilsson are with the National team in the Olympics and Elfsborg also have some injuries. Not a perfect situation…
The big question for Häcken is Paulinho. Is the knee good enough or will he miss out on this game? Otherwise the eleven looks pretty solid.
Both of the teams aims high and both of the teams have a lot of options in the attacking positions. I will be very surprised if we don’t get to see at least three goals in this game.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Over 3.0 at 1.90
IFK NORRKÖPING v ÖREBRO
Almost a derby and we should see a lot of people at Östgötaportens stands and a lot of emotions on the field. IFK Norrköping are hunting Malmö at the top and must keep winning.
Still some injuries for Norrköping in the defense, but up front it looks really good with a lot of options for Jens Gustafsson.
Örebro have a tough situation here. Björnkvist injuried and both key players Moberg and Åhman-Persson suspended. Big star Ajdarevic is with the national team in the Olympics.
If both of the teams have full squads, this could be a tight game. But when we look at the situation in Örebro, and the fact that Norrköping is very strong at home I have to pick this bet. Should drop closer to kick off.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: IFK Norrköping -1 at 1.95
