Umea FC vs Akropolis IF (By: Iniestaone)

8th placed Umeå FC is hosting 5th placed Akropolis

I like Umeå's start to the season a lot, there were worries about their lack of power in attack ahead of this season as they lost striker Bbakka to Carlstad Utd and Mårtensson due to retirement but right before the season started they brought in Boye on loan from Örebro in Allsvenskan who now has scored 3 goals in 3 matches and he plays up front with Eriksson who has scored 2 so far so the attack is looking good on a team that has a solid defense

Meanwhile Akropolis is doing well on 5th place, 2 wins and 2 draws so far. This is a fairly good team that has a good chance of ending the season in top 5 but its also a team that heavily relies on home results, their away matches have been 1-1 at Karlslund and 3-2 at Rynninge as big favorites

The main reason for this bet though is that the teams in this league don't have a lot of quality players outside of the starting XI and this week, three matches are played in very short time. Umeå has an advantage over Akropolis here as Umeå played their last match on April 22nd, they were supposed to host Vasalunds on the 27th but there is a pilot strike at SAS which meant Vasalund couldn't get to Umeå (very far up north) and the match was canceled. Akropolis played their home match against Karlstad on the 27th so they will have had far less time to rest and prepare and they have to do the traveling for this match so the fitness level is fully on Umeå's side here

Akropolis is the only team not bringing a full squad here as they are missing regular offensive midfielder Nekrouf

Big chance of an upset here due to the circumstances, but the risk of the draw makes me think the DNB bet is the way to go here
