Halmstads BK vs AFC Eskilstuna Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who have already been relegated to the second tier. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Halmstad won 1-0 at Örebro last weekend but other results meant it was in vain and they will be playing in Superettan next season. The goalscorer on that occasion was Gabriel Gudmundsson who has three in his last eight league appearances. Eskilstuna suffered 3-2 home loss to Elfsborg that confirmed their drop out of the top flight. Their goalscorers on that occasion were Ferid Ali and Chidi Omeje but they could not keep the opposition out. The reverse fixture came in April and it ended in a goalless draw in a game that was low on chances with just three shots on target registered.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Halmstad are favourites to come out on top of this game but given the week that both sides have had I would not wanting to be making any kind of judgement on the match markets so I will look elsewhere for my bets. This game might be an open affair as neither side have much to play for but you must remember this is the second and third lowest scoring team in the league and under 2.5 goals is a big price outsider. Throw in to the mix the previous meeting ending without a goal and just three shots on target and this looks worth an interest, Nikolai Alho is a talented young Finn who has been on the bench in recent weeks but could get a start here with an eye to next season. In his limited time on the pitch he still averages 1.7 per shots per game which puts him in the top 50 of the division and he is worth an anytime scorer play with an additional interest on first scorer if team-news shows he starts.

Halmstads BK Preview

Despite victory last time out a run of seven points from the last ten fixtures means that Halmstad are dropping out of Allsvenskan after just one season in the top tier. They are currently on 20 points with two fixtures remaining and are an unreachable eight points from the safety area. At home, they have taken the lowest number of league points (13) in Allsvenskan this season. An issue has been a struggle to score with just 15 netted in front of their own fans while at the other end they have shipped 21 which is the fourth worst. 72% of their goals have come in the opening hour of a match with 36% coming in the opening thirty minutes.

AFC Eskilstuna Preview

A run of just seven points from Eskilstuna confirmed their relegation after at one stage looking like they could stage a remarkable recovery that was aided by a three-game unbeaten run that included a defeat of Malmö. On the road, they have struggled taking just five of their 19 points. They have had problems at both ends of the pitch on their travels having netted a joint league low of ten goals and conceded a second highest 31 goals. Around 56% of the goals they have scored have come in the second-half with 27% of them coming in the final 15 minutes. Five of their last seven have gone over 2.5 goals and four of the last six have seen both teams score.
