AIK vs Hammarby (By: Dajkula)
Aik is welcoming Hammarby in the Stockholm derby and the tensions will be high. Only 2 points separate the teams ad both are riding the wave of good results. But, as Aik is the host in this match, and they have great results here, I am going with them. Aik is 4`th with 21 points so far.
AIK, as the reigning champion didn`t start all that good. They won just 1 of the first 4 matches and it seemed this will not be their season. Things have picked up though and now AIK is right back in contention. They look much more solid in defense but more potent in attack. The attacker Elyonoussi has been rampant scoring 9 goals so far in 11 matches. AIK has 4-1-0 at home with 7:2 gd which is far from great but as long as they can keep the defense tight, they will do well. At home, they won over Sirius, Hacken, Falkenberg, and Eskilstuna.
Hammarby is the 6`th team of the league with 19 points and 5-4-2 so far. They have risen their game but it has to be said that they had favorable games. Most of those were played at home lately while on the travels Hammarby isn`t all that great. Hammarby has 1-2-2 away from home and the biggest win was against Orebro 2:3 while they took a 0:0 draw with Goteborg. They lost to Helsingborg and Malmo. For today, Hammarby will have some problems in defense with 3 defenders out. Odilon(def.9-0), Fallman(def.10-1), Fenger(def.5-0) are injured while Solheim(def.10-0) is a doubt.
Besides longterm injured Nyholm(0-0) and Ekstrand(0-0), AIK has all available.
AIK definitely plays better at home and with the problems Hammarby is having away and the quite crucial missings, I do fancy the home side.
