The home side come into this on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win against bottom-most residing Helsingborg, last weekend. A common theme in more recent Djurgarden games is the high number of scores with a nil in them. From the previous 6 matches before this one, it has happened in 5 of them.
On the other side, Varnamo resides at the 13th position on the table with 13 points. Of the 13 matches played, they won thrice while having drawn 4 times but have lost on 6 other occasions. The visitors has not able to net in 5 games this season and that accounts to 38% of the games where they have not been able to find crucial goals.

These two sides have never crossed paths before and this will be their first ever encounter.
Djurgarden vs Varnamo Prediction
These two sides meet for the very first time this weekend since this is Varnamo’s first ever season in the Swedish top-flight. Going into this contest, Djurgarden have not been beaten in their last 7 league matches at home. The hosts have kept clean sheets in 3 of their last 4 league games and look really strong in the defensive side.
Meanwhile, Varnamo have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 fixtures and have won just one away game form the 7 matches played on road in Allsvenskan. The visitors have even seen conceding over 2.5 goals in each of their last 3 away trips.
We therefore feel that a home win is likely to happen this weekend.
