IFK Norrkoeping vs Halmstads BK Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Nörrköping are back in their league title race after a massive three points last time out when they defeated their nearest rivals Malmö FF 2-1 thanks to a goal each from Daniel Sjölund and Karl Holmberg both coming in the last ten minutes. Halmstad put to an end a run of five defeats in a row by picking up a point in the previous game which was a home encounter with Örebro that ended goalless. It is Nörrköping who have dominated the recent meetings between the pair including a 7-0 victory when the duo met in the Swedish Cup back in March. Karl Holmberg got a hat-trick that day while Sebastian Andersson got a brace and David Moberg-Karlsson and Niklas Bärkroth got one goal each.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Nörrköping should come out on top here but the price looks a little short so look elsewhere for your bets. The first bet I like is in the home team exact goals market where you can back them to score three or more at a nice price. This should be taken as they hit Halmstad for seven in the cup a few months ago and should be confident after beating Malmö. You can also have a smaller interest in the team total goals market where a small play on Nörrköping to score over 3.5 goals also looks worth an interest.

IFK Norrkoeping Preview

A run of three straight victories and no defeat in seven has moved Nörrköping up the table. They now sit in second place and are just one behind Malmö FF and although early days it looks like being between these two for the title. It has been three victories, one draw and one defeat from the five played in front of their own fans. They have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three home games and conceded just three in front of their own fans this season. Karl Holmberg got a hat-trick when these sides met in the Cup in March and after scoring in the last game will be hopeful of a start here. A quarter of the goals they have scored have come in the final 15 minutes of a tie.

IFK Norrkoeping Team News

Andreas Blomqvist and Marwan Bazi (both cruciate) are out for a few months while Henrik Castergen (also cruciate) will miss the remainder of the season.

Halmstads BK Preview

The point last time out put to an end a run of four straight defeats but it is still just one victory all season for Halmstad. They currently sit in 14th place with just six points from their ten games so far. They have lost their last two away matches and taken just two points from four on the road this season. In three of their four away ties this season they have conceded over 1.5 goals. Halmstad need to find a regular goalscorer with Sead Haksabanovic and his two goals their top marksman this season. 60% of the goals they have netted this season have come in the second 45 minutes.

Halmstads BK Team News

Jesper Westerberg (hamstring) and Alexander Arvidsson (tendon) are close to returns.
