Key Stats

  • Four of the last five meetings between Hammarby and AIK in all competitions have ended with both teams scoring, while five of the hosts' last six fixtures along with each of the visitors' last three outings have also produced goals at both ends of the pitch.
  • Hammarby haven't kept any clean sheets in their last six attempts and their last two wins arrived via scorelines of 2-1. AIK have lost their last two away games but have only failed to score in one of their last six matches, so you can see why we're backing a 2-1 win for Hammarby.
  • We're backing Hammarby midfielder Nahir Besara to score on Sunday as he leads the way for the hosts this season with three Allsvenskan goals and the 33-year-old has scored in four of Hammarby's last five home games in all competitions.

Player to watch – Nahir Besara

Hammarby's goalscoring midfielder has started the new season brightly and is enjoying his second spell at the club even more than his first.

Nahir Besara had three seasons with Hammarby from 3013-2015 before making the move to Turkey but in 2022 he returned to the Swedish outfit and has already gone on to score more goals for them in a shorter period.

The Hammarby midfielder is leading by example

After scoring 11 times in the 2022 campaign, Besara followed that up with nine last season and has already netted three times in nine starts in 2024. We're backing Hammarby's veteran midfielder to put in another excellent display this weekend against AIK.
