Norrkoping vs AIK (By: Iniestaone)
16th placed Norrköping is hosting 11th placed AIK
Great match tonight between last year's two best teams that both fell flat in the season premiere. Norrköping lost to newly promoted Helsingborg away 1-3 and AIK got a point at home against Östersund in a goalless draw.
Norrköping's match away at Helsingborg wasn't that big of a disaster, it was Helsingborg's first season back in the top of Swedish football after their relegation not too long ago so there was huge support and excitement, its a hard team to beat away and I understand that Norrköping lost it.
I didn't watch AIK's match against Östersund but from what I can tell it was pretty even and stiff
What is very important for Norrköping for this match is that Nyman will most likely be able to play a full match instead of getting thirty minutes like versus Helsingborg and that Simon Thern is back in the squad, he missed the match against Helsingborg and he is perhaps the biggest key player for Norrköping. I think that Norrköping had a better pre season than AIK who looked very scrappy and they didn't manage to create a lot in the season premiere against Östersund as big favorites, it might take some time for AIK to get rolling as their main transfers have come so late this season, they actually managed to bring Kolbeinn Sigþórsson from Nantes but he signed a week ago
Norrköping won this fixture 2-0 last year and I think a similar result is very likely tonight
