HÄCKEN – GÖTEBORG
Derby in Gothenburg with a lot of questions. Offensive Häcken has changed coach ahead of this season and focus has been on the defense – with a good result. Häcken isn’t as offense as last season, but the defense looks solid. IFK Göteborg has played four 1-1-games and still hasn’t lost.
Häcken had more than 20 shots against Örebro, but game still ended 0-0. Now they have both Paulinho and Farnerud back, the two most important players in the offense. That should give the time more quality up front.
IFK Göteborg has not lost yet, but still the opening of the season has been a disappointment. Four of the games has ended 1-1 and most of them has been against teams who should be at the bottom.
Häcken usually are strong at home on the artificial grass and with Farnerud and Paulinho back they really should have a great chance to get three points here. IFK Göteborg looks weak and really misses Mads Albeaks quality on the midfield.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Häcken -0.5 at 2.360
ELFSBORG – ÖSTERSUND
This is two of the best attacking teams of the league. Before round six started Elfsborg had scored most goals of all the teams with an average of 3 goals per game. Now they are facing Östersund who prefers the attacking game plan and the artificial grass.
Elfsborg misses Jebali up front but that should not be a problem as they can put Prodell and Frick on the field. That gives Elfsborg more options in the box and both of them are dangerous. Otherwise the home side has a good situation in the squad.
Östersund did not have any problem with the newcomer AFC and won easy. This is a tougher away game for the potential top team, but situation in the squad is good and coach Potter can put the best team on the field.
I really think we will se an open game here with a lot of chances from both sides. Östersund has a better midfield and should be able to control the game, but Elfsborg is strong when they can counter attack and with Prodell and Frick up front they will de dangerous around the box.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Over 2.75 at 1.877
