AFC Eskilstuna vs Helsingborg Match Preview
AFC Eskilstuna saw their winless run stretched to eight in midweek as they suffered a 1-0 loss away to Elfsborg. They are second bottom of the table (level on points with Falkenberg) and it could be a season of struggle for the side who were promoted in the last campaign. A home fixture with a fellow promoted side is an important one in their relegation fight.
At the Tunavallen, they have had mixed fortunes with one victory, two draws and one defeat from their opening four fixtures. Last season in Superettan their home form was key as they did not lose any of their 15 games. Their last three at this ground have been low scoring and produced a total of just three goals.
A 3-1 defeat at home to AIK last time out means it is six without a victory for Helsingborg who are finding lack back in Allsvenskan tough. They are grateful for a strong start which saw them pick up six points from their first three fixtures. They are currently in 14th place which would see them in a relegation play-off come the end of the season.
Away from the Olympia, they have struggled losing each of their previous four shipping nine times and scoring just two. In three of these four Helsingborg have found themselves going in behind at the break and then going on to lose the match. The two road goals they have netted this campaign have come in the final five minutes.
Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair with the visitors marginal favourites though you would not want to be siding with a team who are winless on the road this season. Of the three options, a home win would be the better option given they took four points off Helsingborg last campaign but better value can be found in other markets.
Going low on the goals looks the best option as these two sides know each other well and will identify this game as one they can’t afford to lose. Under 2.5 goals is low but under 1.5 goals offers value as does no in the both teams to score market.
