AIK Solna News and Form – Will AIK mount a comeback?

The Swedish side have an uphill task ahead of them to reach the group stage of the Europa League. They entered qualification in the previous round after having dropped down from the Champions League qualifiers against Maribor. This season in European action, AIK are W3 D1 L3 in their seven fixtures. So it has been unpredictable stuff from them.

Back in the Champions League qualifiers they did win their two home games, but then were held to a 1-1 home draw with FC Sheriff in the Europa League in the previous round. In the Europa League specifically, the Swedish team are winless in their last four played on home soil (D3 L1). All three of the drawn fixtures in that sequence were a 1-1 result. One positive that AIK can look at it is that they have lost just two of their last nine home games in the Europa League. Do they have enough about them to mount a comeback?

Celtic News and Form – Can the Bhoys hold it together?

The Bhoys put in a good shift at home in the first leg of this tie, picking up a 2-0 win at Celtic Park. So they have a great opportunity in front of them to drive on for the Europa League group stage draw. On the weekend they remained perfect in their new Scottish premiership season, taking a win over Hearts. Celtic began their European campaign this season in the first round of the Champions League qualifiers. They won their opening four games but then in the third round, they ran into Romanian side CFR Cluj. Celtic took a 1-1 away draw in the first leg which actually set them up very well in the tie.

However, they crashed into a 3-4 loss at home in the second leg. So that is why Celtic are ploughing along now in the Europa League. Goals from James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard gave them the advantage in the tie. So what about the form of Celtic in the Europa league? The Scottish Champions are W4 L5 in their last nine games in the competition (including qualification). They were on a three-match losing streak (from last season’s group stage) before their win against AIK in the first leg of this tie.

AIK Solna v Celtic Predictions

Celtic to win: On the evidence of what was seen in the first leg of this tie, we aren’t expecting that much of fightback from the Swedes. But with Celtic you just never know. Away win & both teams to score as it may yet still get interesting.
