AIK coach Richard Money said the Uefa Cup tie with Valencia is still alive despite the Swedish team travelling to the Mestalla trailing by one goal.
Valencia won 1-0 in Solna, but Money said his plan is to sit back and absorb the pressure.
"Versus Malaga in La Liga they had 72% of the ball possession. We have to be patient," said Money
"I would be crazy if I said we were coming here to direct the play, not even Real Madrid do that.
"The most important thing ahead of the first leg was that the clash would still be alive when we played in Valencia, and it is.
"I can just demand that the guys produce as good a display as possible, then we will have to see what the result is," added Money.
AIK are likely to play midfielder Derek Boateng in attack after injuries to their strikers.
