Halmstads BK vs Kalmar FF Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Wednesday evening (18:00) game features two sides in need of points at the bottom of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Halmstad suffered a third consecutive defeat last time out as they went down 4-1 against AIK. They shipped four goals in a 21-minute spell just before half-time that put the game beyond them and the one they did score was a Nils-Eric Johansson own-goal. Kalmar drew their second successive game as they were held 1-1 by Norrköping in a game that they lead most of the time thanks to a 9th minute effort from Romarinho but the match ended all-square. The home side have won each of the last four meetings between the duo including the reverse fixture in May. Kalmar won that game 2-0 thanks to a goal each from Melker Hallberg and Viktor Elm.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This looks a tough game to predict between two sides who need the points at the bottom of the table. The visitors are showing greater form but this is reflected in the prices and as such I would look at other markets for my bets. I like the look of Romarinho (he may be listed as Pereira Romarinho with some bookmakers) to score he as he has done so in each of his last two and eight times in the league this season for Kalmar and will fancy his chances against a home defence that has shipped seven times in their last two. Given that 40% of their league goals have come in the opening thirty minutes I like the look of Kalmar to get their first goal before the set time which is 52:00.

Halmstads BK Preview

Halmstad are deep in the relegation mix and need three points here as they sit seven behind the side in 14th place (Jönköpings Södra). Their form has been poor recently with five defeats in a row in the league and just one victory in the last 22. At home, it is two successive defeats though before that they did go four unbeaten drawing three of these. Of the 20 goals, they have scored this season 11 have come at home while just 17 of the 37 they have conceded have come at their own ground. No Halmstad player has netted in their last three league games and just once in their last five. 55% of their league goals have come in the opening half with 40% of them coming in the opening thirty minutes.

Halmstads BK Team News

Fredrik Liverstam (groin) is a doubt while Alexander Arvidsson and Johan Oremo (both knee) are unlikely to play again this season.

Kalmar FF Preview

Kalmar sat five points above Jönköpings Södra going into this round of fixtures with the latter currently occupying the relegation play-off slot. Their recent league form has been solid with no defeat in four and just one loss in their last eight. On the road, they have picked up four points from their last two games and seven from their last four. Each of their last three matches away have gone over 2.5 goals and eight of their last ten. Romarinho is their top goalscorer this season with eight goals in the league and he has two in his last two. 40% of their goals have come in the first 30 minutes with 28% coming in the opening 15.

Kalmar FF Team News

Måns Soderqvist (hip) and Mahmoud Eid (groin) are doubts while Tobias Erikson (thigh), Rasmus Elm (hip) and Johan Stenmark (knee) are all certain to miss out.
