Our football match prediction:
Friends Arena will host Thursday’s football match between AIK and Zeljeznicar. The Swedish side failed to turn their dominance into goals in the goalless draw with Zeljo in Sarajevo, but they are definitely capable of beating the Bosnian outfit in front of home fans in Solna. Thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Norrkoping at the weekend AIK climbed to second place in the Allsvenskan standings and they seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Zeljeznicar. The Bosnians have yet to kick off the new domestic campaign and that is yet another reason why we predict the hosts will make it to the Europa League third qualifying round. Eero Markkanen, who scored a hat-trick in a 5-0 win over KI, will be the man to watch in the home team and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Zeljeznicar often struggle on the travels and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling AIK’s party in Thursday’s football match at Friends Arena.
