AFC Eskilstuna vs Djurgarden predictions for this Monday’s game in the Swedish Allsvenskan as the hosts look to move off the foot of the table. Read on for our free betting tips and predictions.
These sides are at opposing ends of the table with very different aims as we head into the second half of the season. Eskilstuna are rock bottom and staring down the barrel of relegation, after a dreadful campaign in which they’ve won just one match. Djurgarden meanwhile are right in the battle for European places, largely thanks to a free-scoring attack. They aren’t totally convincing at the back though and there’s a strong chance we’ll see goals at both ends here.
That has been the case in 71% of AFC Eskilstuna home games this season and in 62% of their league games overall. They have tended to find a goal, particularly on their own patch but defensively they’ve been very poor indeed. Eskilstuna have conceded 2 goals per game on average in the Swedish Allsvenskan this term, which is the worst defensive record in the league.
They’ve conceded in 88% of their matches overall so an away goal looks virtually guaranteed in this one. Eskilstuna did at least pick up their first win of the campaign in their last home match though so they can take some confidence from that and despite conceding, they have managed to score in 4 of their last 5 at home in the league.
Djurgarden average 1.88 goals per game this term, the 2nd best record in the division so they will certainly feel as though they can really expose this poor home defence. They will come targeting three points but considering they are 3rd in the division, their defensive record of 1.18 goals per game conceded isn’t that great.
Both teams have scored in 57% of their away games and the value bet here looks to be backing Both Teams to Score at 10/11.
Additionally consider backing Othman El Kabir to score anytime at 3/1. The Djurgarden midfielder has netted in 3 of his last 6 appearances and is up against his former club here so will be keen to add to that tally.
Correct Score Djurgarden 3-1 at 11/1
