Elfsborg vs IFK Norrkoeping Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (14:00) fixture features two sides who have nothing to play for but pride in their final Allsvenskan game. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Elfsborg saw their two-game winning run come to an end in comprehensive fashion last time out as they were beaten 4-1 at Östersunds. A 90th minute Viktor Prodell goal (his second in two matches) was all they had to show as they were comprehensively outplayed. Norrköping were victorious last time out as they eased to a 2-0 victory over Örebo. The game was never in doubt as a goal each from David Moberg Karlsson and Karl Holmberg meant they were two up after just 22 minutes. The reverse fixture between the pair and Elfsborg picked up the road victory that day coming out on top 3-1. Simon Lundevall, Alex Dyer and Emir Bajrami got their goals while Sebastian Andersson netted for the home team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to find an angle into this game as neither team have anything to play for and as such I would stick with the goalscorer markets for your bets. Karl Holmberg is the one player who has something riding on this game as he chases the market to be top-scorer and you can bet the visitors will be doing everything to help him score. He looks worth a play to score at any time and then again place a smaller stake on him to net two or more.

Elfsborg Preview

Elfsborg have won two of their last three though that makes it just two victories from their last eight. This season will go down as a disappointment for Elfsborg as it marks the first time since 2005 they have not finished in the top six. At home, they have looked decent winning seven of their 14, drawing three times and losing four. Each of their last three in front of their own fans has gone over 2.5 goals and seen both teams score. They are third highest scorers in the league this season with 50 goals led by Issam Jebali who has netted ten times. Their defence has shipped 37 goals which makes them joint sixth best ranked and all five clean sheets they have kept this campaign have been at home.

Elfsborg Team News

Simon Olsson (thigh), Anders Randrup (personal reasons), Ibrahim Dresevic (illness), Per Frick (foot), Lasse Nilsson and Rasmus Rosenqvist (both unknown) are all ruled out.

IFK Norrkoeping Preview

It has been a decent end to the season for Norrköping who have won four, drawn two and lost just two of their last eight. A four-game run of defeats through July means that they can only as finish as high as fourth and a much inferior goal difference means they cannot get to third and the Europa League qualification spot. On the road, it has been a mixed bag with six victories, five defeats and three draws. They have lost just one of their last six on their travels winning three, drawing two and losing just the once. The 42 goals they have scored this season means they are mid-ranked as an attack with Karl Holmberg one behind the top scorer having grabbed 13 for the season. Their defence is the joint sixth best with 37 goals conceded and a total of nine clean sheets though two of those have come on the road.

IFK Norrkoeping Team News

Andreas Blomqvist, Henrik Castegren and Marwan Bazi are all out with cruciate problems.
