Elfsborg vs Halmstads BK Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (16:30) game from the Borås Arena features two sides in the bottom-half of the Allsvenskan table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Elfsborg have had a decent week gaining a useful league point at Jönköpings Södra in a 2-2 draw thanks to a goal each from Samuel Holmen (penalty) and Daniel Gustavsson. In midweek, they were in Swedish Cup action needing extra-time to defeat Landskrona 4-3 in a game with Emir Bajrami grabbing a brace. Halmstad lost their last league game 2-1 at Djurgården with Gabriel Gudmundsson netting their only goal. They were victorious in the Swedish Cup seeing off Kristianstad 3-1 thanks to a brace from Höskuldur Gunnlaugsson. The reverse fixture came at the start of July and it ended 1-1 with Nikolai Alho netting for Halmstad and Simon Lundevall grabbing for Elfsborg.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Elfsborg should win but I would not want to take such short odds on a side who are five without a victory though I see nothing about Halmstad that makes me want to side with them also. Each of the last eight at Elfsborg have seen exactly two or three goals scored so this looks worth a little interest. It also looks worth an interest in finding one of those scorers and at bigger prices I like Hoskuldur Gunnlaugsson who might be given a starting role after bagging two in midweek in the cup. Exactly two or three goals scored Hoskuldur Gunnlaugsson first goalscorer, each-way unlimited places

Elfsborg Preview

It is now five without a victory for Elfsborg who have taken just two points in this run. They sat in tenth place going into this round of fixtures and are probably safe from relegation but too far behind to challenge for a Europa League spot. At home, they have five victories, one draw and four defeats from their ten games though they have lost each of their last two in front of their fans. Each of their last eight at their own ground have seen a total of exactly two or three goals. Simon Lundevall has netted two in the last three and six in his last nine. Around 60% of their goals this season have come in the first-half with 40% of them coming in the opening thirty minutes.

Elfsborg Team News

Per Frick (hamstring) is back in training while Adam Lundqvist, Rasmus Rosenqvist (both illness), Samuel Holmen (calf) and Lasse Nilsson (unknown) are doubtful. Alex Dyer is out for at least another month with a broken ankle.

Halmstads BK Preview

Halmstad have won just two league games this season the first of which came on the opening day and then a remarkable 6-1 victory over Jönköpings Södra a few weeks ago. They are though picking up occasional points having drawn four of their last eight and they sit second bottom of the table. On the road, they have failed to win a single league game all season though they have drawn four of their ten. Their last five matches on their travels have produced a total of just nine goals. Icelandic midfielder Höskuldur Gunnlaugsson has found the back of the net four times in his last six starts in all competitions. Around 57% of the goals they have scored in the league this season have come in the first-half.

Halmstads BK Team News

Jonathan Svedberg (illness) and Fredrik Liverstam (groin) are doubts while Alexander Arvidsson (knee) is out for at least a month.
