On Saturday afternoon, two teams will meet in completely different forms in Jönköping.
And there is no doubt that HV71 looks strongest, ahead of the meeting with AIK.
The match is broadcast on SVT and commented on by Chris Härenstam and expert Maria Rooth:
- HV71 comes to the match against AIK in a terribly good shape, Rooth says.
In the last five matches, all wins, HV71 has scored 28 goals - on average almost six per match.
The team shadows the close duo Luleå and Brynäs in the table.
- HV71 has defeated both top teams and against Brynäs Sanni Hakala made a comeback after injury and offered a hat trick.
Yes, most things look good for HV because the scoring machine Kennedy Marchment also trains and leads the points league in SDHL, says Rooth.
AIK has had a completely different season than table three HV71.
AIK is third from the end of the table and heading in the wrong direction, purely in terms of form.
- Only one win in the last seven.
It looks a bit like the shape, says Maria Rooth.
The Stockholmers have only four full points in 16 matches.
They started with six straight losses, then had a good period, but are thus in a new slump with only one victory in the last seven.
But AIK won the first meeting of the season against HV71.
- AIK needs to focus on the defensive.
But they are also working hard to get the goal scorer started and need to see Lisa Johansson continue to show off their offensive qualities to have a chance against a strong HV71.
But the advance tip thus goes to the Småland women who have good chances of extending the ongoing winning streak.
