Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Helsingborg will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Ostersunds when they host AFC Eskilstuna at their Olympia on Sunday afternoon. Helsingborg aim to escape the danger zone in the Allsvenskan standings and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Swedish top flight as they take on the relegation-threatened team in front of home fans.
AFC Eskilstuna have been struggling at the back of late and, as a result, they sit in the penultimate position in the standings ahead of Matchday 24. Saulius Sirmelis’ troops failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to the likes of Djurgarden and Orebro and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Helsingborg’s troops at Olympia. When the two clubs met at Tunavallen in the first half of the season they played out a 1-1 draw.
