Champions League at Coral

The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Champions League will be played on Wednesday night and our next featured match sees Swedish outfit, AIK, taking on Armenian side, Ararat-Armenia as the betting tips continue at the Friends Arena in Solna.

AIK Prediction – Can AIK overturn 1st leg deficit?

The 1st leg of this clash saw something of an upset as Ararat-Armenia handed the Swedish visitors a 2-1 defeat in last week’s clash.

AIK now return to their home ground of their Friends Arena where they’ll be looking to overturn this deficit in order to progress to the 2nd round.

Recent results overall have produced a mixed return for the hosts as they’ve collected wins in the Swedish Allsvenskan.

Victories against Hammarby, Kalmar and Elfsborg have been offset slightly by losses to Norrkoping (league) and last week’s loss in the Champions League.

Form at home has been fairly solid though for AIK who have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches overall in all competitions.

That loss was to the aforementioned Norrkoping but 6 wins out of these last 10 matches at home suggest that AIK are not done yet.

There’s been very limited previous history in the Champions League for AIK, but their one home tie in this competition ended with a 1-0 win over Luxembourg side, Jeunesse d’Esch.

Ararat-Armenia Prediction – Can Ararat-Armenia hold on?

The home side are just 90 minutes away from recording a memorable victory in the Champions League following last week’s 1st leg win.

They now have a 2-1 lead to protect, but the goal that AIK scored in last week’s 1st leg at the Vazgen Sargsyan anvan Hanrapetakan Marzadasht could prove decisive.

Nevertheless, AIK will need to be the team to break Ararat’s current 7-match unbeaten run in all competitions in order to progress to the next round.

This 7-match sequence includes 6 wins and just the 1 draw, so the visitors will need to be respected ahead of this decisive leg.

Results away from home have been similar in terms of consistency for Ararat-Armenia as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 14 away matches overall.

However, this is Ararat-Armenia’s first foray into the Champions League and Wednesday night will be their first ever away leg in this competition.

Can the visitors hold on or will AIK show their quality in this 2nd leg and dash Ararat-Armenia’s European dreams?

 

Key-Facts – AIK v Ararat-Armenia

  • AIK have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches at home in all competitions
  • Ararat-Armenia have lost just 1 of their last 14 away matches overall
  • This is the first ever clash between these two sides in this competition

 

Betting Tips Verdict

AIK know what they need to do and a home win plus a few goals looks to be on the cards here for this 2nd leg.
