Elfsborg vs Djurgaarden: Preview and Predictions

Aron Wright - April 21, 2018

Elfsborg vs Djurgaarden
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 23 April 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Boras Arena (Boras)

Djurgaarden travel to Boras Arena for their Matchday 5 clash on Monday evening on the back of a great 3-0 win over Malmo and hope to build on such a convincing performance in front of the home crowd, making the top 3 cut early in the new campaign. They have had more troubles netting numbers of goals on the road but come on a high and surely look very motivated to impress!

Elfsborg have, on the other hand, had troubles getting the season underway and only escaped the relegation zone with a 0-2 win over the league newcomers Brommapojkarna, after seeing three losses in their first three outings. They have been beaten by Malmo and Sirius at this ground as well as Kalmar on the road – and although we have seen very narrow clashes along the way, this will be no boost to Di Gule’s confidence.

Djurgaarden will now hope to capitalize on the rivals early woes and finally connect two wins in a row, with all-important points in Boras. However, this will come as no easy task and we expect a thrilling contest for them, as we have come to get used in the sides’ recent head-to-head clashes too.

Elfsborg vs Djurgaarden: Head-to-head

We have seen three or more goals in five of the sides’ last six head-to-head clashes.

The sides shared the spoils in a 2-2 thriller here back in September 2017.

Elfsborg haven’t beaten Djurgaarden since April 2016 and earned just two draws, with one loss, in the last three matchups.

Elfsborg vs Djurgaarden: Prediction

We will now stick our necks out for another Draw at Boras Arena, which looks the best approach to the fixture and comes at 3.25.

We will also back a YES on Both teams to score at 1.66, which does look like more of a banker bet at this point.
