Halmstads BK vs Sirius Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two teams in opposite halves of the Allsvenskan table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Halmstad put in a great showing last time out as they got among the goals in a 6-1 home victory over Jönköpings Södra. Johan Oremo grabbed a brace in that game while Höskuldur Gunnlaugsson, Andreas Bengtsson, Sead Haksabanovic and Aboubakar Keita all grabbed one each. Sirius were at the wrong end of a 4-1 game last time out as they lost at home to AIK. An 83rd minute Jesper Arvidsson goal was all they had to show for their efforts on that occasion. Halmstad are without a win in their last three against Sirius who won the reverse fixture in April 2-1. The goalscorers that day were Moses Ogbu and Philip Haglund for Sirius while Fredrik Olsson netted for Halmstad.

Betting Tips and Predictions

They say form is temporary and class is permanent and while neither of these can lay claim to be class the majority of the season has shown Sirius are the better team. They can be backed in the draw no bet market at around evens and this is too hard to pass up. The statistics shows that Sirius are woeful in the first-half and much better in the second so this presents some betting opportunities. The one I would highlight is the second-half to be the highest scoring 45 minutes for them as just 14% of their goals came in the first period of a match.

Sirius draw no bet

Sirius second-half to be their highest scoring 45 minutes.

Halmstads BK Preview

It is now just one defeat in six for Halmstad who are in good form though four of these have finished all-square. They sit in 15th place which is still one of the relegation slots though they are just three behind GIF Sundsvall in 14th. At home, it is now one win and three draws from their last four league matches though victory last time out was just their second in front of their own fans this season. A feature of these fixtures is both teams to score which has happened in four of their last five. Halmstad games are the fourth lowest in the league in terms of goals produced with an average of 2.33 goals per fixture. Around 43% of the goals they have scored have come in the opening 30 minutes.

Halmstads BK Team News

Alexander Arvidsson is out until next month with a tendon injury.

Sirius Preview

Defeat last time out for Sirius put to an end a run of six games without defeat but it is still just their second defeat in the last 13. They sit in fourth place with going into this weekend just five points separating the side in second and eighth. On the road, they have performed well with four victories, three draws and just two defeats from their last nine. A feature of their road games is over 2.5 goals which has happened in three of their last four with the one that did not go over still producing two goals. Sirius are the fifth highest team for total goals in the Allsvenskan this season with an average of 2.78 per fixture. It is intriguing to note that would the league have ended at half-time they would actually be bottom of the league.

Sirius Team News

Top-scorer Moses Ogbu (broken ankle) is one of six players that could miss the game. The others are Andreas Eriksson (knee), Ian Sirelius (unknown), Karvan Ahmadi (cruciate), Ante Björkebaum (also cruciate) and Johan Eiswohld (foot).
