AIK come up against visiting club Malmö at Friends Arena in this Allsvenskan meeting on Wednesday.
Our tips, poll and stats for AIK v Malmö FF can all be found here (including the best match odds).
AIK, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-0 Allsvenskan triumph vs IFK Göteborg.
In that game, AIK managed 58% possession and 22 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player to score for AIK was Alexander Milošević (70'). IFK Göteborg got 7 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that not much more can be done by the AIK backline. AIK have been stingy, seeing the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past six outings standing at 3. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, however.
A look at their previous results shows us that AIK:
- have not beaten Malmö FF in their last 13 league games. What a terrible run without a win that has been.
- are unbeaten in their last 19 home league matches. A fantastic home record.
Malmö will go into this meeting after a 2-0 Allsvenskan win with the defeat of Mjällby AIF in their last game.
In that match, Malmö FF managed 60% possession and 24 shots at goal with 12 on target. For Malmö FF, the scorers were Malik Abubakari (36') and Veljko Birmančević (38'). Mjällby AIF had 8 shots on goal with 2 on target.
A succession of reliable performances from the Malmö FF defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 1 from their previous 6 outings in total. Over that same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 7.
Leading up to this clash, Malmö FF:
- are winless against AIK when they've played them away from home in the last 4 league games. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- haven't been defeated by AIK in games played away from home for the previous 6 matches in the league. A very good record, indeed.
- are without a win away from home in their last 2 league games.

Team News: AIK
The AIK manager Bartosz Grzelak does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game thanks to a completely injury-free squad to pick from.
It looks as if Gnaget should kick off with a 4-4-2 system with Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Joe Mendes, S. Papagiannopoulos, Alexander Milosevic, Erick Otieno, Zak Elbouzedi, Sebastian Larsson, Bilal Hussein, Nicolás Stefanelli, Jordan Larsson and Nabil Bahoui.
Team News: Malmö
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there is only a single fitness worry for the Malmö gaffer Miloš Milojević to contend with. Jonas Knudsen (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
From our viewpoint, Himmelsblått might play in a 4-3-3 lineup, going with Johan Dahlin, Felix Beijmo, Lasse Nielsen, Dennis Hadzikadunic, Martin Olsson, Sebastian Nanasi, Sergio Peña, Erdal Rakip, Malik Abubakari, Ola Toivonen and Veljko Birmancevic.
We’re inclined to think that Malmö FF and AIK could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We’re therefore expecting a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
