Elfsborg vs IFK Gothenburg Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

This Monday evening (18:00) game features two sides in mid-table in Allsvenskan. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Elfsborg drew 2-2 with Örebro last time out after being two behind they fought back to claim a point. Issam Jebali grabbed a brace for them (one of which was a penalty) to enable them to come away with something.

Göteborg were victorious in their previous match as they saw off Elfsborg 2-1 to claim all three points. They were one behind after four minutes but a goal each from Soren Rieks and Mikael Boman turned the game around.

Each of the last four meetings between the pair has finished all-square including the reverse fixture in May. That game ended 1-1 with Issam Jebali netting for Elfsborg while Tobias Hysen scored for Göteborg.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These two sides have drawn a combined 12 of their 36 matches this season so far and have drawn their last four head-to-heads so it seems worth a little interest on this game also ending all-square. Joakim Nilsson has netted three times in the last five home games for Elfsborg and goes off at generous odds here to get among the goals.
