Halmstads BK vs IFK Norrkoeping Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday lunchtime (13:00) game will have an impact on both ends of the Allsvenskan table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Halmstad are now bottom of the table after Eskilstuna won in midweek and they only managed a draw with Kalmar. They went 1-0 down in the 18th minute but then spent 64 minutes playing against ten-men but could only net once which came through Gabriel Gudmundsson. Norrköping kept alive their hopes of making the Europa League with a comprehensive 4-1 defeat of one of their rivals Häcken. Karl Holmberg netted a brace (one penalty) while David Moberg-Karlsson and Andreas Johansson grabbed one each. The last four competitive meetings between the duo have been won by Norrköping including earlier in the season when they edged a five-goal thriller. Karl Holmberg grabbed a brace on that occasion while Niklas Bärkroth, Fredrik Olsson and a Jon Guoni Fjoluson own-goal completed the scoring.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The visitors should win this game and the prices look worth a little interest on them to do so. I know that Halmstad must win but so too do Norrköping and the prices have over-looked the gap in quality between this pair who are going to be playing in different divisions next season. Karl Holmberg is the joint top-scorer in the league this season and he will be looking to get among the goals. He netted a brace when the pair last met and four in his last three. I would not put anyone off backing him as an anytime scorer but I will try to boost the price and try that he scores two or more.

Halmstads BK Preview

It is Halmstad who now sit bottom of the division and with six games to go the situation looks bleak as they are nine away from a relegation play-off and 12 from automatic safety. Their form has been poor of late with just one point from their last six fixtures. At home, they have lost just one of their last seven but a tendency to draw has cost them with four of these finishing all-square. Both teams to score is a common feature with four of the last six featuring this with three of these being score draws. 12 of their 24 this season have gone over 2.5 and their average is in the middle of the line with 2.46 goals per fixture. 50% of their games have seen the scoreline level going into the half-time break.

Fredrik Liverstam (groin) is a doubt while Alexander Arvidsson and Johan Oremo (both knee) are ruled out.

Each of their last two and three of their last four have seen both teams score. 11 of the 24 they have played have produced a total of two or three goals with an average of 2.67 per fixture. 50% of their games have gone over 2.5 goals though 25% have gone over 3.5.
