ÖREBRO v AIK
AIK won the derby and should be filled up with confidence here after a good start. Seven points in the first three games is more than OK for AIK who historically is bad at the beginning of the season. Örebro hasn’t lost yet and got two draws and one win.
Örebro grabbed a strong victory against Trelleborg away in a tough game with difficult conditions – a very strong wind. Nahir Besara showed quality by scoring twice and the new coach Axel Kjäll must be pleased with the start so far.
Easy win in the derby, undefeated almost a full squad. Everything seems to be moving in the right direction for AIK so far. Starting eleven should be the same as it has been for the last two games here.
Undefeated on artificial grass for almost two years. That’s a great record for AIK. Especially since most of the away games in Allsvenskan is played on artificial grass nowadays. AIK has a better squad than Örebro, and should be the better team here, but they must show respect for Besara, Sköld, and Igboananike who really can do damage to any team.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: AIK -0.5 at 1.980
DJURGÅRDEN v MALMÖ
This is probably the most interesting game of the round. Both Malmö and Djurgården should be top5 this season. Malmö is favorites to win the league and Djurgården finished third last season. So far, the beginning of the season has been a little disappointment for both of them.
Djurgården did a very weak performance in the derby. Up front, key player Kerim Mrabti came off injured early in the game and replacement Bajdi looked lost. The defense has been solid, but now Jonas Olsson was back – and looked very weak. Many questions ahead of this game.
A win in the first round, after that two draws – that’s not good enough for Malmö. The main concern for the guests here is the injuries. Bachirou, Bengtsson, Vindheim will miss the game – Larsson and Traustason are big doubts. If all of them misses the game, Malmö should be in trouble.
With Mrabti out in Djurgården and Bachirou out in Malmö – both of the teams will be without two of the most important players. If also Traustason and Larsson miss the game, Malmö will face a starting lineup with some players in new positions. I think Malmö will focus on the defense since it’s more important not to lose the game. Djurgården without Kerim Mrabti is not that strong in the attack and I think we will see a pretty close game here.

IFK GÖTEBORG v DALKURD
Interesting game. Two new coaches in this leagues and even if IFK Göteborg is a big team, it also feels like a new team this season. New coach, new system and a total makeover of the club. Both of the teams have 1W 2L and will aim for the W here.
IFK Göteborg is in a build up phase. With a new coach, some new players and a total makeover from what has been – this will take some time. Two 1-2-losses in a row sure hurts the confidence, but it’s not really a surprise. Homecoming Gustav Engvall should be preferred in attack here.
Dalkurd wasn’t maybe a bit naïve when playing against Häcken last round. Actually, they were never close to getting a point and the difference in quality was shown. Here, they will probably face the same lineup and should be closer regarding quality.
3-1, 1-2, 2-1. That’s the results of IFK Göteborg’s games so far. 2-0, 3-0, 0-3. That’s the result in Dalkurd’s games so far. It’s quite easy to say that both of the teams should attack. And if they succeed, they score. If not, the opponent will. All of the games played so far by both of teams has been pretty open, with a lot of chances. I have no reason to believe that this is going to be any different.
