Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Friends Arena will host Sunday’s football game between AIK and Kalmar, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The capital club are sitting in the relegation zone with only six points on their account and they are eyeing their only second win of the process. Both Axel Bjornstrom and Erick Otieno are banned for the match, while the likes of Viktor Fischer and Alexander Milosevic are out of contention through injuries.
Kalmar, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Varnamo and Norrkoping. The visitors have a chance to climb to fourth position in the standings, but beating AIK in Stockholm is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Both Carl Gustafsson and Sebastian Nilsson are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
Highlighted Player (John Guidetti):
John Guidetti is one of Sweden’s most talented forwards and the man tipped to replace superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the national team. The highly rated footballer left Brommapojkarna soon after being promoted to the first team set-up, joining Premier League giants Manchester City.
And while he never got a chance to shine at Etihad Stadium, Guidetti proved a great deal of potential during loan spells with Feyenoord and Celtic, and eventually earned a permanent contract with La Liga high flyers Celta Vigo.The talented striker has yet to nail down a regular starting berth at Balaidos, but he has been using the time spent on the pitch wisely, and continued his goalscoring form in Spain’s top flight.
Playing alongside Nolito and Iago Aspas at club level as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Berg on international stage is bound to further aid the player’s development, and many believe he will go on to become one of Sweden’s best ever strikers.Guidetti has so far only made a handful of appearances for Blagult, but that is bound to change in years to come.
