AIK vs Ararat-Armenia Match Preview
AIK have seen an exciting 2-1 loss in Yerevan, where they fell behind very early and struggled to get back on track with ten men despite an equalizer from Chinedu Obasi seen along the way. They now host Ararat-Armenia for the return match and hope for more, promising a strong challenge at Friends Arena.
Gnaget have thus seen their unpredictable run of recent continue but they have been a tough side to beat at this ground, which does make them heavy betting favourites. Rikard Norling’s men have beaten Elfsborg (3-0) on Saturday, with a brace from Kolbeinn Sigborsson in the first half and Henok Goitom adding one in the second, which promises them in good spirits now too.
Ararat-Armenia have been in fine form, though, and could prove a tough nut to crack. They last week’s win was their sixth in seven outings across competitions, including a goalless draw against Desna and a 0-3 win over Gomel in their only two pre-season friendlies.
Despite seeing the contest change to their favour early on, it’s fair to say Ararat have shown what they’re made of and the Armenians will surely look to complete the upset in Solna. They’ve been very solid at the back and putting such a display on should be of great importance for Vardan Minasyan.
We will still back AIK to overcome such a challenge and we’ll go for them to turn a narrow clash their way, as we go for a Home win to Nil at 4/6 with Coral in hope we’re in for a more confident display from the Swedes this time around.
However, we should not be in for a very one-sided clash either and this has us backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 27/20 with Ladbrokes, which seems like great value for those keeping faith Ararat-Armenia will not get on the scoresheet this time around.
