IFK Gothenburg vs Sirius Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Friday evening (18:00) game features two sides with nothing to play for in the Swedish top division. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Göteborg continued their recent slump in form by going down 1-0 to Eskilstuna on Monday night. They can have few complaints as their hosts created more scoring chances and had more corners. Sirius are also on a miserable run as they suffered their sixth consecutive defeat 4-3 at home to Örebro last time out. This came despite a Jesper Arvidsson brace (one penalty) and another goal from Stefano Vecchia. These met in April in the reverse fixture and that game was won 2-0 by Göteborg thanks to a goal each from Mix Diskerud and Mikael Boman. That match was their first ever competitive league meeting.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that both teams have little to play for and both are out form the draw seems an obvious play. Especially, when you consider that eight of the 12 Göteborg have played at their own ground have ended all-square. 66% of the home goals have come in the second-half while this rises to 84% for the visitors so it seems an obvious but safe play to take the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring.

IFK Gothenburg Preview

Göteborg have ended the season in poor form with three defeats in their last four and no victory in six. They sit in 11th place in the division and though it is unlikely they will get caught by the teams below them they are not mathematically safe. At home, they have lost just once this season though they have drawn eight of the 12 at their own ground. Each of their last eight and 11 of 12 this season in front of their own fans has seen both teams find the back of the net. They have kept four clean sheets this season though just one of those has come at home. Around 66% of the goals that they have scored have come in the second-half with 23% in the final 15 minutes.

IFK Gothenburg Team News

Benjamin Yapi Zalo (hamstring), Erik Dahlin (personal reasons) and Sam Adekugbe (thigh) are all doubts while Vajeba Sakor (back) is ruled out.

Sirius Preview

A poor run of form has seen Sirius slip to eighth and drop out of the running for the Europa League places. They have lost each of their last six to put to an end a sequence of results before that which saw them lose one of the nine previous. On the road, they have lost their last two but in the four before that took an impressive ten points. Goals are a feature of those ties with six of the last seven going over 2.5 goals with three of their last five going over 3.5 goals. Stefano Vecchia has netted in the last two games while Jesper Arvidsson has seven in the last 14. Around 84% of their goals have come in the second-half with 45% in the final 15 minutes.

Sirius Team News

Andreas Eriksson (knee), Johan Eiswohld (toe), and Josh Wicks (unknown) are all doubts. Karvan Ahmadi, Ante Björkebaum (both cruciate), Daniel Jarl (knee) and Moses Ogbu (broken ankle) are all out for the season.
