AIK vs Shkendija: Top Free Betting Tips
AIK had surprising issues against Vorskla Poltava in the previous round – how will they do against another much smaller team? Here are our predictions.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
Shkendija played four games in the Europa Conference League already against much smaller teams than AIK and three of four had more than 2.5 goals. The teams' defense is definitely not great and they concede goals against any opponent. This means that a team like AIK should have no issues scoring multiple goals in this match, especially as the home team. But with their problems in defense, we might even see a goal from Shkendija too.
To Score in Half – AIK 1st Half
We expect AIK to be very motivated after the disappointing previous round and we expect them to be at the top of their game in this opening leg against Shkendija. The hosts will try to score goals as soon as possible and we already saw them score three times in the two previous games in the competition, in the first halves. We think that there will be at least one goal for them in this match too before the break.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
A year or two ago, we would have never thought about betting on Shkendija to score in this match, and especially when they are the away team. However, AIK had serious issues in defense against Poltava, a much weaker team than them, and we think that Shkendija will have their chances to score. Unless AIK have done a miraculous job in a week, their defense might crack in this fixture too.
AIK vs Shkendija: Form, Recent Games, and News
AIK had the unfortunate experience to lose the title in Sweden despite finishing with equal points to the champions from Malmo. The reason was their goal difference. In other words, they are as good as the champions and should have no issues against a team like Shkendija. However, while they had the best defense last season, they have much bigger issues in this aspect and we saw their problems in the previous rounds.
Shkendija are a small team from Macedonia that is far from experienced in European Competitions but doing great in the new season. The team finished in 3rd place last season in the domestic league and had only 4 defeats in 33 games. Their attack is not bad while their defense is quite impressive. They will face their biggest challenge to date against AIK but after the recent weeks, they should be motivated and hopeful.
