HAMMARBY – ÖREBRO
Hammarby is a bit of danger here since they’ve sold and released some players and are not able to register the new signings before 15th of July. That was maybe the reason why they lost against Häcken away last round where Hammarby didn’t even have a full bench. The effort was quite good, but the lack of a full squad was obvious. Örebro won 4-2 at home against IFK Norrköping, without top scorer Kennedy Igboananike.
Hammarby will probably have the most important central defender Aidoo back in the team here. That is good news for Hammarby. Otherwise, it seems that Hammarby only waiting for the transfer window to open so that the new players can be available.
Örebro have their captain and playmaker Nordin Gerzic suspended here and top scorer Kennedy Igboananike is still a doubt. If both of them are missing, Örebros chances of winning this will be pretty small. But still, 4 goals scored against IFK Norrköping are good and the team will have confidence here.
I think this will be a fun game to watch between two teams who want to win the game. Both of the teams have shown some bad defending through the season, but also some pretty good attacking football. Overall, I think both teams will score and that we will see at least three goals here.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Over 2.5 Goals at 1.793
KALMAR – AIK
Classic game between two teams that have been under pressure during the first half of the season. Kalmar has brought back Nanne Bergstrand as coach and AIK has signed three new players during the break. Those players aren’t available here for AIK and Kalmar didn’t get any effect from the change of coach in the last game where they lost 1-4 against Djurgården.
As always, there is a big doubt if Rasmus Elm is ready to play for Kalmar. If he plays, Kalmar’s chances will grow a lot, but if we read the early reports it seems that he will miss this game. Otherwise, there aren’t any big news in Kalmar here.
AIK had big problems with Östersund last round but managed to get a point after a late goal from Denni Avdic. On Thursday, the capital team got a nice game against KI Klaksvik in Europa League and won 5-0 with Markkanen scoring a hattrick. That was very important for the confidence.
Kalmar is a mediocre team so far and even if they’ve changed coach I found it hard to see how he will turn this around to anything positive. AIK is a much better team and should have a great chance here. The game on Thursday was important for the morale and will probably give AIK a positive boost ahead of this game.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: AIK -0.5 at 1.960
IFK NORRKÖPING – ELFSBORG
This game has great potential. When these two teams are in the right mood, they are two of the funniest teams to watch in Allsvenskan. The mentality of the teams is attacking and with a lot of speed. Elfsborg is, however, a bit of a disappointment so far in the league.
IFK Norrköping lost against Örebro last round with 2-4, a big surprise. After that IFK Norrköping has played in the Europa League qualification where they won quite easy. Now it is very important to get three points to keep the gap to Malmö at the top of the table. Linus Wahlqvist is back after suspension – important.
Elfsborg did only manage to get a point in the away game against Halmstad. Weak performance from the Borås-team. The situation in the squad is good and the best players are all available here. The situation in the table isn’t what Elfsborg hoped for and they must start winning to avoid a flop season.
In my opinion, Elfsborg must change coach. To get this kind of results and have this position in the table, when you have the squad that Elfsborg have is a big failure. IFK Norrköping is a better team and should be highly motivated here after the loss last round.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: IFK Norrköping -0.5 at 1.900
