Djurgarden vs Mjallby
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Wednesday, 12 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena (Stockholm).
The home team is currently fourth in the table after 14 games. They have won half of those games but also lost five of the remaining half. But they have one of the best defenses in the competition which however was not good enough to prevent the defeats. At home, they have a good record but lost the most recent clash against Hammarby.
Mjallby has lost more than they have won in matches on the road. They are currently winless in three previous away matches of which two were back to back defeats. They also tend to give away more goals than they score in matches away from home.
Djurgarden vs Mjallby: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Mjallby has three wins and two defeats in five previous meetings with this opposition.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five games across all venues.
- The hosts have lost three of the last five head to head games at this ground.
- All three recent clashes at this ground produced more than 2.5 goals.
Djurgarden vs Mjallby: Prediction
This match will be the first meeting between the reigning champions of the first and second tiers of Sweden. The champs are still recovering from the home defeat to Hammarby, a match they would want to forget soon. Even though the away side is unbeaten in four games on the trot, they are not convincing enough to get a win away from home. It is very clear from there away from the season so far that they lack defensive discipline.
When we look at the head to head history between these two, Mjallby has a good record in recent times. They defeated the hosts here in a Cup fixture back in March this year. Most of their previous games at this venue produced more than 2.5 goals. So I am backing a final score with over 2.5 goals and both teams to score as well.
Djurgarden vs Mjallby: Betting Tips
