      AFC Eskilstuna vs Falkenberg Predictions

      The bottom two sides in the Swedish Allsvenskan are going head to head on Saturday in an early relegation six-pointer. These two sides both came up from the Superettan last season, but will they be able to stay in the top flight for more than a single season? They’re both on course to go straight back down this term, but the pair will be chasing a crucial three points to move towards safety. Can AFC Eskilstuna use their home advantage to get them over the line in this weekend’s clash?

      Eskilstuna come into Saturday’s game with one win from their first three home games of the season. However, they come into this clash with four straight defeats behind them. That leaves the hosts struggling to get clear of the bottom two, while they’ve already lost five times in the top flight. It’s been far from an easy return to the highest level for the hosts, who will be desperate to keep up the recent streak between these two sides. The last four clashes between them were won by the home side, can AFC add to that streak?

      Falkenberg managed to finish up five points ahead of AFC Eskilstuna in the second tier last season, but their away record is worrying ahead of this clash. The hosts have also lost five of their seven matches at this level so far, going down in each of their away trips. They are one of three sides in the league to have zero points on the road so far – alongside fellow promoted sides AFC and Helsingborg. Will Falkenberg lose that unwanted record with a result in this clash?

      The visitors do have goals in their side, as shown by their incredibly high scoring trips to date. Falkenberg have seen over 3.5 goals in 100% of their away matches, after high scoring losses on the road. They’ve scored two goals per game on the road despite losing all three clashes, with 100% of their away games finishing with both teams finding the net. The visitors should come here on the front foot against a side who are on their level. We expect that to open up a thrilling game here.

      The hosts have seen both teams score in 71% of their league games so far this season. AFC have conceded in all of their league game matches, while the visitors have shipped 10 goals in just three outings on the road so far. That does point to goals in Saturday’s clash. Falkenberg have found the net in five of their last six visits here and we expect that to continue. We’re going with both teams to score, along with a 2-1 success for AFC.
