Halmstads BK vs IFK Gothenburg Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (13:00) fixture features bottom of the table Halmstad playing host to eighth placed Göteborg. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Halmstad lost their previous game at Malmö going down 2-0 to the side at the top of the table. They can have few complaints about the result as they did not register a shot on target. Göteborg put behind them a disappointing run of form by defeating Sirius 4-0 in a complete team performance. The goals were shared around with one each for Mix Diskerud (his second in three), August Erlingmark, Tobias Hysen and Mikael Boman. The last time these sides met was in July in a game that ended 1-1 with Mads Albaek and Sead Haksabanovic getting a goal each. It means that Göteborg are now unbeaten in the last ten meetings between the duo.

Betting Tips and Predictions

One thing to note about teams stuck in mid-table is that they find it much easier to phone in a performance on the road then in front of their own fans. This might explain why Göteborg won 4-0 last time out but have taken just four points from their last six on the road. The home team need to win and look capable of getting something out of this so I recommend taking them in the draw no bet market. Jonathan Svedberg is given licence to get forward from midfield and offer plays as the main attacking threat so to see him at such a big price to be first goalscorer is crazy and he looks worth backing here.

Halmstads BK Preview

Halmstad despite a recent uptake in form that has seen them take four points from their last three fixtures are in a must win situation. They are eight points from the relegation play-off slot and have just four fixtures remaining. At home, they have taken 13 of their 17 points this season and have lost just two of their last eight. A feature of these games is both teams scoring which has happened in five of their last seven in front of their own fans. A lack of goals has been an issue this season with just 23 netted in their 26 matches which is the second lowest total in the division. Their defence has shipped 41 goals which puts them in the middle of the pack in terms of defensive records.

Halmstads BK Team News

Aboubakar Keita (knee) is an injury concern while Alexander Arvidsson and Johan Oremo (knee) are out for the remainder of the season.

IFK Gothenburg Preview

With four games to go Göteborg are sat in eighth place with no danger of relegation and no prospects of Europa League qualification. Their victory last time out put to an end a run of six games in Allsvenskan without a win. On the road, they have struggled with seven defeats and just four victories and just four points taken from their last six. Four of their last six and six of their last nine on their travels have gone over 2.5 goals. Their 39 goals this campaign has them in the top third for goal scoring though their defence is in the middle third. Around 64% of the goals they have netted this season have come in the second-half.

IFK Gothenburg Team News

Benjamin Yapi Zalo (hamstring) and Sam Adekugbe (thigh) will hope to use the international break to return to fitness while Vajeba Sakor (back) could miss the remainder of the season.
