Djurgarden vs Hacken
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: 24 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena (Stockholm).

Djurgarden will host defending champions Hacken in a super-exciting midweek clash in Swedish Allsvenskan on Wednesday evening at Tele2 Arena in Stockholm.

This is a Matchday No 18 affair which was moved to this midweek to free up the weekend around the qualifiers for the European competitions for the two teams in July.

Both outfits will enter this tie on a high. Djurgarden are still impeccable in the capital where they won four out of four games this season, conceding just twice in the process.

Their latest victims were seventh-placed Mjallby on Sunday afternoon. The goals came right at the start and at the end of the second half through Magnus Eriksson and substitute Victor Edvardsen.

The problems for Djurgarden occur on the road where they have claimed just one point in five matches this term.

This is why they only hold the sixth position in the league table after nine rounds of the competition.

Hacken, on the other side, sit second with six wins in the opening nine rounds. They held leaders Malmo to a 2-2 stalemate in the last weekend’s derby at Eleda Stadion.

Benie Traore prolonged his extraordinary spell of form by scoring another goal, his ninth of the season in as many games.

It was Malmo’s maiden draw of the season after eight consecutive victories at the start of the 2023 campaign.

Hacken scored as many as twelve goals in the last three outings across competitions and we expect them to find joy in the final third here against Djurgarden as well.

Djurgarden vs Hacken Head-to-head

  • These two teams have already played each other earlier this month in the return game as Hacken celebrated a demolishing 4-1 victory at their Bravida Arena.
  • Djurgarden have 12 wins, 2 draws, and only 5 defeats in the last 19 home outings against Hacken.
  • However, Hacken will go into this on the back of three subsequent wins in this matchup.
