Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Friends Arena will host Monday’s football game between AIK and Halmstad. The capital club are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, with the team aiming to climb to top three in the standings. AIK failed to turn their dominance into victory in a 1-1 draw with Orebro, with the team taking no fewer than 16 shots on target, but they are surely capable of beating Halmstad in front of home fans.
The good news for the hosts is that important defender Sotiris Papagiannopoulos returns from suspension. Halmstad, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Ostersunds. Magnus Haglund’s troops are undefeated in the previous three away games in the league, but given AIK’s display in the draw with Orebro, home win should definitely be considered. In their last meeting in the Swedish top flight AIK rolled over Halmstad 4-1.
