Season ticket holders at Friends Arena haven’t seen too many victories this season, with AIK languishing in the 13th position so far. The guesting Hammarby will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.

There has not been much time to rest for the guests, as they played a Europa League game only four days ago.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on grass and that the visiting Hammarby have a different surface at their stadium (artifical turf). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on grass is 7-6-10 (win-draw-loss) from 23 matches.
