Eskilstuna vs Jonkoping by Iniestaone
Things were looking very dark for Eskilstuna 12 days ago when they lost to Sundsvall at home (0-2) and it was basically supposed to the be coup de grace for their Allsvenskan campaign this season, but after defeating Örebro away (3-2) they won against Göteborg at home (1-0) in a match that was a true joy to watch. I backed Eskilstuna to win it and they were in control from start to finish despite the winning and only goal coming in the 86th minute. Now they are 6 points behind Jönköping who are on the spot above them - which is the qualification spot, meaning that team will face a team from Superettan in two legs.
Jönköping has also picked up some form as of late but I believe they didn't get enough points during August and September to remain in the league. Their schedule is a lot harder than Eskilstuna's, they are yet to face three top tier teams that are chasing either the title or European football: AIK, Djurgården and Östersund and I can't imagine Jönköping taking more than 2-3 points there. Aside from that, they have this match vs Eskilstuna and one vs Kalmar at home which is the easiest of them all but Kalmar has still been a very effective team climbing out of relegation danger these past 2 months.
Much like Eskilstuna, Jönköping is a team that gathers their points at home. They have only collected 8 points in their 12 away matches this season. Eskilstuna's 13 out of 18 points in total this season have been at home.
Eskilstuna's remaining matches, aside from this one, are vs Häcken away, Elfsborg at home, Halmstad away and Sirius at home. They can take a lot of points out of those matches. I will most certainly be betting on them to win them all. They have a decent chance at qualification and maybe even steal Sundsvall's 13th spot as they too have a very hard schedule. Eskilstuna has a lot to fight for here, but getting three points here will be crucial.
I expect some minor roster changes for this match since last time out as they played a 5 man defence against Göteborg and I am pretty certain they will dominate ball possession against Jönköping the same way but with a lot more manpower applying pressure up front. Jönköping is a very shaky team and should they concede one goal, I am certain they will concede more than that.
