AFC Eskilstuna hope to sell some tickets for this game even though the season has been rough so far with 25 points and a 12th position in the Superettan table. Visiting Trelleborg holds 10th place with 25 pts.

This should be an interesting game with lots of spark and energy as both teams are well rested since they last saw competitive action. Game on!

AFC Eskilstuna form and stats

4-2-5 (win-draw-lost) are the Superettan numbers at home for AFC Eskilstuna so far this season.

The fans are hoping that Eskilstuna will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 2-3 away loss in the Superettan game against Akropolis (placed 5th). Ahead of that match, Eskilstuna won a home game hosting Orgryte (1-0).

This is expected to be a close game, with AFC Eskilstuna perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with AFC Eskilstuna as a small favourite), we find seven games. AFC Eskilstuna has won three of these, drawn three and lost one.

There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Eskilstuna, as the Superettan home game vs Dalkurd is only four days away.

Eskilstuna are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 13 goals in 11 games. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Eskilstuna have conceded 16 in these home matches.

Trelleborg form and stats

There's been little loot from Trelleborg's travels as they have only collected 10 points from 11 away games in the Superettan. Trelleborg only have 3 wins to counter their 7 defeats and 1 draw.

Trelleborg play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 1-0 victory visiting Umeå (placed 15th). A 1-1 draw was the result before that, hosting Akropolis.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Trelleborg playing away and similar expectations, we found seven relevant matches. Results were two Trelleborg wins, three draws and two defeats.

After this away game Trelleborg return home for a Superettan game against Degerfors. That game is only four sleeps after this.

The attacking power of Trelleborg when travelling is not overwhelming with 10 goals scored from 11 league matches away. As opposed to that, Trelleborg have seen the ball go into their own net 16 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

The two sides played each other earlier this season: Trelleborg - Eskilstuna 1-1. Numbers for the last seven meetings between these two teams are: one win for Eskilstuna, three draws and three wins for Trelleborg. Over 2,5 goals: two times; under 2,5 goals: five games.
