IFK Gothenburg vs Elfsborg Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

It was an impressive performance last time out for IFK Göteborg who travelled to GIF Sundsvall and smashed them for four. Tobias Hysen lead the way with a brace while Emil Salomonsson and Mads Winther Albaek grabbed a goal each. Elfsborg were also big winners last time out defeating Jönköpings Södra 3-0. The goals were spread around that day with one each from Daniel Gustavsson, Issam Jebali and Joakim Nilsson. It has been honours even in recent meetings between the pair with both games ending drawn last season. The game at Elfsborg finished 1-1 while the game in Göteborg finished 2-2.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These two sides have been amongst the goals in recent weeks and could be here though the bookmakers are wise to that and make over 2.5 goals very short so instead have a look at a few players in the goalscorer markets. Firstly, for the home team I like the look of Simon Lundevall who has just one goal for the season but has five assists and is featuring highly among the shots on target data. I think at double the prices of the strikers this look good value on a player who is given licence to get forward. Secondly, for the away team I am shocked to see Joakim Nilsson at such big prices considering he has two in two games. The defender is a real threat to the goal and can reward each-way backers here.

Elfsborg Preview

It is now back-to-back victories for Elfsborg though before that they won just one of the previous seven. They sat ninth going into the weekend set of fixtures with the second 45 minutes proving to be a problem as they would be fourth if games ended at half-time. On the road, they have struggled with two defeats and one draw from their last three but they did win their opening away fixture. Three of their four away ties this season have gone over 2.5 goals while two of these even went over 4.5 goals. Per Frick is their top goalscorer this season with four goals though he has fired just two in the last eight. Joakim Nilsson is the man in scoring form with the defender netting in each of the last two.
