BTTS - Yes

Each of the last three meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams scoring

Hosts AIK sit seven points and seven places above their guests Kalmar in the Allsvenskan table and head into Sunday's clash as the bookmaker's pick to claim all three points.

These two sides played out a 1-1 draw when they clashed in the Svenska Cupen back in March but Kalmar did have the home advantage on that occasion.

The visitors boast the second-worst goal difference in the division and we're expecting this weekend's match to produce plenty of goalmouth action.

AIK vs Kalmar prediction: No clean sheets expected in Solna

Key Stats

  • Each of AIK's last six competitive and non-competitive fixtures have produced goals at both ends of the pitch.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in each of AIK's last six outings.
  • Four of Kalmar's last six league games have witnessed at least three goals.

Correct score prediction: AIK 3-1 Kalmar

AIK preview: Looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat

AIK were away at Hacken in their last league game where they were outclassed from the very first minute.

Hacken scored twice in the first half and then added two more goals in the early stages of the second 45. AIK's top goalscorer Ioannis Pittas scored a consolation goal shortly before the hour mark but by that point, the result had already been decided.

Predicted lineup: Nordfeldt (GK), Papagiannopoulos, Hansen, Thychosen, Björnström, Celina, Modesto, Coulibaly, Dabo, Pittas & Faraj

Kalmar preview: Lost 4-0 at home in last league game

Kalmar looked like a team destined for relegation when they took on Vasteras at the Guldfageln Arena in their last Allsvenskan game.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 16th minute and led 1-0 at the break. The Kalmar fans might have expected their side to come out in the second half with more purpose but instead, Vasteras pushed for the crucial second goal and got it ten minutes after the restart. The visitors added a further two goals to wrap up a very convincing 4-0 victory which left Kalmar sitting second from bottom with 10 points from their opening 12 games.

Predicted lineup: Kindberg (GK), Sætra, Sjöstedt, Gersbach, Motaraghebjafarpour, Romário, Gojani, Magashy, Islamović, Skrabb & Trenskow

Player to watch – Ioannis Pittas

Ioannis Pittas moved to AIK from his homeland in 2023 where he scored nine goals in 13 starts in the Allsvenskan.

The 27-year-old has carried on his great form this season, netting seven times in his opening 12 league games, and head into Sunday's match in good form with six goals in his last eight outings for club and country.

AIK's Cypriot striker has seven goals this season

We're backing Pittas to continue his good form this weekend against a struggling Kalmar side, helping to guide AIK to victory.
