It has not been often in recent times where Kalmar FF have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Röda bröder have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals during that time. We shall soon find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Going into this one, Kalmar FF have not won at home in their last 4 league matches. That's never good.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Djurgårdens IF in Allsvenskan competition, AIK and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, AIK managed 50% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. At the other end, Djurgårdens IF had 14 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Aslak Witry (77') scored for Djurgårdens IF.
Looking at their form, and AIK have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 10 goals in all. In defence, Gnaget could really do with shoring things up.
Their prior results show that AIK:
- haven't been defeated by Kalmar FF in games played away from home for the previous 6 matches in the league. A very good record, indeed.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 4 league matches.
Head to head

Team News: Kalmar FF
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Kalmar FF gaffer Nanne Bergstrand to be concerned with from a near full-strength group of players. Emin Nouri (Hip Injury) will miss out.
Team News: AIK
Thanks to a completely injury-free group to choose from, AIK manager doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game.
Our thinking is that Kalmar FF may well find it hard to see themselves scoring against this AIK lineup who we think might end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore see a narrow 0-1 advantage for AIK when all is said and done.
There should be little in it.
