Norrkoping vs AIK (By: Dajkula)
Norrkoping welcomes AIK in the second round of the Swedish Allsvenskan. Neither team had a great start in the first round as neither team won. Norrkoping lost away to the newcomers Helsingborg 1:3 while AIK only played 0:0 with Ostersunds.
The teams were topping the table in the previous season as AIK were the champions while Norrkoping finished second. Norrkoping likes to be more adventurous in the attack while Aik is so hard to break down. AIK had only one loss in the previous season and it was what decided the title. I gather this will be very hard to repeat. Aik has a mark on its back and everybody will be after them.
Not to mention that the team that wins the league often falters in the next season. I expect that Aik will have a hard time at the beginning.
Aik lost some key players in defense like Milosevic and Jansson, also the key midfielder Olsson. They got some good names like Sigtorsson from Nantes and Obasi from Elfsborg.
Norrkoping lost just once at home in the previous season. They lost the key winger Karlsson but most of the team remains the same. They added a few prominent names however and once more they will fight for the title. Norrkoping won over Aik in the previous 2 of 3 home matches. I see them closer to taking the full points today.
