ELFSBORG v IFK NORRKÖPING
This is a game that doesn’t have any real tension. None of the team has something to really play for and we should a game that is quite free from tackles, duels or mentality.
Elfsborg hasn’t been strong this season and in fact, it is the team that has most goals against in the whole league. That says something. To this game, they do have some injury concerns but we should see almost the same lineup as last game.
IFK Norrköping actually can be third on the table, but they need a miracle and that’s not going to happen. One player who should be motivated is Kalle Holmberg who can become top scorer in the league.
I think that this game can be quite fun to watch, just because it doesn’t have any tension. We should see two teams that play relaxed and offensive, a football that they both like. When IFK also has a striker that goes for the top scorer trophy I think they will attack.

JÖNKÖPINGS SÖDRA v ÖSTERSUND
This is the only game in the league that we have two teams that has something to fight for. J Södra needs a win to be totally sure of a new contract. Östersund needs a win, and Djurgården to drop points, to take the last spot to Europe.
J Södra will be without Gojani in the midfield, a big hit for the home side since he is important for the balance of the team. Fendrich sure will replace him. Otherwise, J Södra comes from a strong point against Djurgården away after a massive defensive performance.
Östersund performed well, but lost in the tough game against Athletic Bilbao away, late on Thursday night. I actually do think they can reload and put a good performance in this game since they surely can motivate themselves when there is a ticket to Europe at stake.
There is no doubt Östersund is a better team than J Södra here, the big question is if they can reload. I do think so and in a very tough final round of the season, I do find some value here, but it’s not a bet where I would put 10 units.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Östersund -0.5 at 2.130
MALMÖ v HÄCKEN
Malmö is the champions of Allsvenskan 2017 and this will be the final show of the season in front of the home fans. The guests really would like to destroy that party since they need a win to still have a chance for Europe.
Malmö will be without some key players here. Dahlin in goal and Strandberg are both injured, Safari is a doubt, Tinnerholm and Nielsen are suspended. Surely we will see some talents get minutes on the field here…
Häcken must win and hope that both Östersund and Djurgården drop points in their games – then Häcken will take the final spot to Europe. Regardless of the results in those games, Häcken must attack to at least give it a chance.
I am pretty sure that Malmö wants to win the last game, in front of their own fans, to really show that they are the best team. But how motivated will they be? What lineup is starting? Häcken must attack! I see an open game with goals at both ends.
