AIK vs Djurgarden Prediction, Preview, Lineups & Betting Tips
One of the biggest games not only in Sweden but in Scandinavia is set to take place on Sunday afternoon, 15 April 2018, when the “Friends Arena” in Stockholm’s municipality Solna will stage the clash between fierce rivals AIK and Djurgårdens IF. This will be the second encounter between both clubs in 2018, as the previous one was once again at the “Friends Arena” in Solna where Djurgarden won 2-0 in the Svenska Cupen (Swedish Cup) semi-finals. Thus “The Blue Stripes” have qualified for the Swedish Cup final, with the goals of Tino Kadewere and Kerim Mrabti, and will face Malmö on 10 May in Stockholm.
The 2018 Allsvenskan started in the same way for both teams – with three points in the opening round and with one point in round two. First, Djurgarden won its opening round fixture which was a visit to Östersunds – 1-0 with a goal scored by central defender Marcus Danielsson. On the day after, 2 April 2018, AIK began its Allsvenskan campaign with a home match vs Dalkurd, won 2-0 with the goals of Robert Lundström and Anton Jönsson Saletros.
Round two swapped the roles of both sides as AIK travelled to Malmö for a game against the title holders, while Djurgarden had a home match against the newly promoted Trelleborgs FF. And if “Gnaget” can be partially pleased with the 1-1 draw in Malmö, although hosts were down to 10 men for most of the second-half, “The Blue Stripes” are surely disappointed by the final outcome (1-1) at the “Tele2 Arena”.

Allsvenskan 2018: AIK vs Djurgardens IF – Prediction and Betting Tips
The Tvillingderbyt (Derby of the twins) is unquestionably the most fascinating fixture in round three of the 2018 Allsvenskan and we expect proper action on the field. Unlike the Swedish Cup game four weeks ago, this time we expect goals by both teams and our tipsters recommend an appropriate betting market: “Both teams to score – Yes“.
Both sides have some interesting strikers and if Djurgarden’s forwards have already shown what they are capable of against AIK, we expect better efforts by AIK’s strikers, where we find the likes of captain Henok Goitom, the Argentine Nicolas Stefanelli, as well as the winter signing Tarik Elyounoussi, who all compete for the two positions on top of the AIK 3-1-4-2 formation.
