AIK vs Goteborg prediction, odds & betting tips – 27/05/2024

AIK could move up multiple places in the Allsvenskan table with a win against Goteborg on Monday night but the hosts are in the midst of a three-game losing streak and simply have to up their game if they are going to secure all three points.

Visitoring Goteborg sit four places and three points behind AIK as things stand but with both teams on the same goal difference, a win would take the away side ahead of their hosts and into the top half of the table.

AIK vs Goteborg predictions: A close and competitive 90 minutes expected

While AIK have struggled recently, they are still a good team and we can see them getting a narrow win over Goteborg in a high-scoring duel.

Key Stats

  • On two of the last three occasions that AIK have played host to Goteborg over 2.5 goals have been scored. At least three goals have been scored in each of the hosts' last five outings as well as in four of the visitors' last five fixtures.
  • AIK have won two of their last three home games against Goteborg and the hosts have scored at least two goals in two of their last three home games but have only kept one clean sheet in their last six attempts which is why we're backing a 2-1 win in favour of the hosts.
  • Ioannis Pittas leads the way for AIK this season with five Allsvenskan goals and the Cypriot striker is in good form right now with three goals in his last four outings.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bookmakers backing AIK

  • HOME: 11/10 (2.10) – 47.6%
  • DRAW: 13/5 (3.60) – 27.8%
  • AWAY: 14/5 (3.80) – 26.3%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

AIK are the expected winners ahead of kick-off with a probability of 47.6%, and we tend to agree with the bookmakers on this one.

Monday's hosts lost 2-1 at Hammarby last time out and will be looking forward to returning to familiar surroundings this week, while Goteborg won 1-0 in their own backyard against Mjallby.

Player to watch – Bersant Celina

Kosovo's Bersant Celina has made a positive start to his second season with AIK, scoring three goals and providing two assists in ten appearances in the Allsvenskan.

The AIK midfielder has made a great start to the season

The 27-year-old former Man City, Ipswich, Swansea and Stoke midfielder moved to Sween in 2023 but failed to make much of an impression. However, his second season with AIK has proven more fruitful and we're backing Celina to impress again this weekend in what we have predicted to be a narrow victory for the home side.
