AFC Eskilstuna Prediction – Can Eskilstuna lift themselves off bottom?

As mentioned above, AFC Eskilstuna sit bottom of the Swedish Allsvenskan prior to their clash on Monday night with high-flying Djurgarden.

The hosts trail second from bottom Falkenberg by a 3-point margin ahead of this encounter, but a win would see them move off the bottom on goal difference.

However, this may well be easier said than done as AFC Eskilstuna have now had to endure a 12-game stretch without a win in the Allsvenskan.

This barren spell includes 8 defeats and 4 draws while results on home turf at Tunavallen have also been disappointing this season.

An ordinary home record stands at 1-3-2 5/6 and includes just the 1 win all season to date which was a surprising 3-1 win over Goteborg.

Since that rare victory though, the hosts have slumped to 5 matches without a win on home soil.

Goals have been in short supply where AFC Eskilstuna are concerned when playing at home, as they’ve failed to score in 3 of their 6 home matches to date.

Djurgarden Prediction – Can Djurgarden move up to 2nd spot?

By total contrast to their hosts, Djurgarden have put together an impressive 5-match winning streak in the Swedish top flight.

Recent wins against Falkenberg, Elfsborg, Ostersunds, Sirius and Kalmar have helped the visitors up into 3rd place and one of the Europa League spots.

A sixth win away at AFC Eskilstuna on Monday night would see Djurgarden leapfrog AIK into second place, and current form could well see them achieve this.

Just as impressive has been Djurgarden’s results away from their Tele2 Arena where they’ve posted an away record that stands at 4-1-1 11/3.

Within this solid record on their travels, Djurgarden have recorded wins at Orebro, Hacken, Falkenberg and Sirius.

In addition, the visitors have kept a total of 4 clean sheets out of their 6 away trips which will have pleased manager, Kim Bergstrand.

The bigger picture shows us that Djurgarden have lost just 2 of their last 16 matches away from home in the Swedish top flight.

Djurgarden have won 3 of the last 4 meetings against AFC Eskilstuna.
