InplayMan has picked out a 13/2 Sunday treble covering action in the Norwegian Eliteserien and Swedish Allsvenskan.
Degerfors vs AIK
This may be a battle between 2nd bottom and 2nd top here as AIK make the journey to Stora Valla, but I like the look of both teams to find the net in this one. The hosts have had a poor start to their campaign with just six points from a possible 30 and they failed to find the net in a 0-2 home loss against Malmo prior to the international break, but they have had a few weeks to rest and picked up a 2-1 win over AIK here last season, and they are far more capable of goals than at times they have shown so far this year.
They should get chances against an AIK side who although are flying in the Allsvenskan, have hardly been the best at the back as of late. They conceded twice in a 3-2 friendly win over Orebro earlier in the week, but in league action have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last four. That includes a 2-1 loss against Molde prior to the international break and a 1-2 win against bottom side Helsingborg prior to that. They've failed to score just once so far this campaign in a loss against Malmo and with both meetings last season seeing both teams find the net I see no reason why we can't see a few more goals this time around.
Stromsgodset vs Lillestrom
Doubt this will be 1.70 by the time the game comes around, in fact I'd be surprised to see anything above around 1.57. Stromsgodset completely and utterly battered last weekend at the hands of Sarpsborg, losing 5-1 and they suffered more disappointment in the week, losing in extra time against lowly Gjovik-Lyn in the Norwegian Cup to make an early exit. They've been a side perfectly capable of scoring goals this season and were on a cracking run before that big loss last weekend, scoring at least twice in each of their last five games prior and their last seven games have now produced 3, 4, 5, 4, 5, 6, 4 goals in 90 minutes.
But the pressure won't stop here, as they now face the Eliteserien league leaders in Lillestrom, a side who are leading the way not only in terms of points but also goals scored, netting 24 times in 11 league games this season. They suffered a little scare themselves in the cup during the week, falling 1-0 down against Junkeren before producing a comeback to progress to the next round, and they should be able to score two or three goals here on their own, but I wouldn't rule out Stromsgodset contributing to the total.
Molde vs Jerv
Big price on this one and you could probably shuffle it around for something a little safer, but I really like the look of it at a very tidy price. It all hinges for me on whether Jerv can find the net, and I'll come to that shortly, but first let me talk about the hosts. Molde have the chance to move top of the Eliteserien this weekend after an incredible run in form which has seen them win nine straight games in all competitions, scoring at least twice in all of those games. In front of goal they've been unstoppable and they've picked up some big results against big sides along the way. Last weekend it was a 1-2 win in a difficult away trip to Odd BK and prior to the international break they saw off reigning Norwegian champions Bodo/Glimt 3-1 on home soil.
Defensively though, there are gaps that Jerv could take advantage of. Molde's 2-4 win aganist lower league Brattvag showed just how vulnerable Molde's attacking football leaves them at the back, and their last five wins domestically have all been whilst conceding a goal at the other end. Jerv are struggling this season, there's no doubt about that. They needed extra time to squeeze past Fram in the cup in the week and in their return from the international break last weekend they were beaten 1-2 at home to Ham-Kam. They have nicked goals against some decent sides though this year, and I can't ignore this kind of price on them getting involved, though I think quality should prevail eventually.
