IK Sirius will be hoping for a better result following a 4-0 Allsvenskan defeat last time out to Djurgårdens IF.
In that match, IK Sirius managed 52% possession and 3 attempts at goal with 1 on target. Djurgårdens IF had 19 shots at goal with 10 of them on target. Kalle Holmberg (66', 73') and Fredrik Ulvestad (77', 86') scored for Djurgårdens IF.
Blåsvart have been conceding pretty frequently of late, but they have also managed to score goals themselves. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Blåsvart have seen their goal breached in 6 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 5 of those matches.
AIK will come into the match following a 2-0 Allsvenskan win in the defeat of IFK Göteborg in their last outing.
In that game, AIK had 40% possession and 13 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. For AIK, the goalscorers were Filip Rogić (4') and Henok Goitom (61'). On the other side, IFK Göteborg had 9 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
A series of outstanding displays from the AIK defence has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 2 from their last 6 outings combined. In that period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 10. While that may be of interest, time will tell whether that pattern shall continue on in this next match or not.
