Djurgarden vs Hacken
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 22 July 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena, Stockholm.
Djurgarden started the new season in an underwhelming fashion, but the head coach Ozcan Melkemichel managed to find the winning formula and return the team back on the track.
Blaranderna are now just six points shy of leaders AIK and they sit fourth in the Allsvenskan ladder. Can they maintain the fine spell of form and clinch another three-pointer on Sunday when Hacken come to visit Tele2 Arena?
The visitors are having a dismal campaign, at least if we are to compare it with a strong fourth-place finish in the previous term of Allsvenskan.
They currently hold the 9th position and they’ll come into this low on confidence after losing two games on the bounce.
The first one came last weekend when Hacken fell 2-1 away at Norrkoping, while the second won’t hurt them much given it came in the second leg of their Europa League tie with Latvian Liepaja.
Andreas Alm’s troops completed the job in the first match beating the Latvians 0-3 on the road last Thursday to earn the right to play German RB Leipzig in the next qualifying round.
Djurgarden vs Hacken: Head-to-head
Teams have ten wins each ahead of their 26th head to head encounter.
Interestingly, none of last four H2H games saw three or more goals scored.
Djurgarden were much more successful in the history of H2H games with Getingarna at Tele2 Arena (8 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in 13 home outings).
Djurgarden vs Hacken: Prediction
Djurgarden head into this as favourites, but they’ll have to keep a close look on one of league’s most prolific scorers Paulinho Guerreiro.
The Brazilian forward bagged as many as 8 goals in 11 appearances this season and he has been enjoying a stellar form recently.
Guerreiro notched nine goals in last nine games for Hacken in all competitions.
The home win & BTTS thus pops up as the most logical of betting options, set at the sky-high 4.00 odds.
Djurgarden won five and drew one of last six league ties and we’d go against ourselves not to back them to grab the spoils here.
