Watch & bet on the IFK Göteborg v AIK Stockholm live streaming at bet365
The two biggest teams from the two biggest cities in Sweden, IFK Goteborg will be hosting AIK Stockholm this monday in a thrilling rivalry between both cities, both cities hold a strong dislike for each other. The side from Goteborg currently hold 18 Swedish titles while their fierce rivals only have 11 to their name.
During their first encounter this season IFK got a 2-0 away victory against AIK, AIK will be hoping to bounce back from the saddening defeat.
IFK Goteborg’s Form
Competing in the Europa League Qualifiers has begun to take a toll on the Goteborg side, having lost three consecutive matches, Currently sitting in 6th places, well off of league leaders Malmo, IFK will look finish above third placed AIK, and keep the cities pride. IFK won’t be adding to their Swedish titles this season but they will look to make a good run in the European Competition.
Tight encounters between two rivals, IFK will look to get out their slump and take a win for their city.
AIK Stockholm’s Form
Also facing a similar problem to their rivals, AIK are competing in the Europa League Qualifiers, but the main difference is AIK just got out of a negative slump and have put three solid performances, to maintain a little 3 game lossless streak. Currently sitting in 3rd, with a game in hand, they could cut down the margin from 1st placed Malmo; to only 6 points. This is an important fixture if they want to maintain their title hopes alive.
IFK Goteborg: Lasse Vibe
Danish Striker Lasse Vibe has been on top form this season, currently leading the top scorers chart, and averaging a phenomenal goal per game ratio, he will be looking to advantage of his positioning and bang in a goal against their rivals.
AIK Stockholm: Celso Borges
World Cup international Borges has been great thus far for AIK Stockholm, holding the midfield and down and also scoring 4 goals for his side.
I am looking at a Goteborg win here, with bet365 offering 2.05 for their victory and if you do not have a bet365 account you can open it here and get yourself a £250 free bonus.
