Elfsborg vs Eskilstuna Prediction & Match Preview

Elfsborg vs Eskilstuna
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Boras Arena (Boras).

Elfsborg are looking to rebound from a tough 4-1 defeat to table-toppers Malmo on Wednesday evening when they play host to recently-promoted AFC Eskilstuna at Boras Arena. The hosts are thus looking ahead of an easier fixture after two super tough matches against the likes of Norrkoping (a goalless draw) and Malmo (a 4-1 loss).

Di Gule generally opened the new season in a superb fashion with three wins, two draws and one defeat in six matches (before last two rounds). They produced particularly strong showing on the home patch where they won two and drew two of four games so far in the campaign. Jimmy Thelin’s troops won two and drew one of past three outings at Boras Arena. They scored seven goals in two mentioned wins and they should have plenty of room to keep such fine attacking trend here against one of the weakest defensive lines in the competition.

Elfsborg vs Eskilstuna: Head-to-head

The head to head statistics also completely favour Di Gule here.

Elfsborg won three and drew one of four matches against AFC Eskilstuna.

Di Gule notched five goals in two domestic wins over Eskilstuna in the 2017 Allsvenskan campaign (2-1 and 2-3).

Elfsborg vs Eskilstuna: Prediction

The visitors will obviously have a mountain to climb to save the elite class status this season. They share the very foot of the league ladder together with Falkenbergs as teams collected five points apiece from eight outings.

The team led by Nemanja Miljanovic were on a streak of four straight losses before Saturday’s goalless draw at home to fellow strugglers Falkenbergs. They lost each of four away clashes so far in the season (4-11 goal difference).

Looking at the head to head record and form, we just have to say the home win is one of the safest bets of the day. We will back it with higher stakes at the odds of 1.53. You can alternatively back Pawel Cibicki to score anytime at 2.30. The Swedish forward has four goals to his name after eight rounds and he should be in position to add to such tally against the likes of AFC Eskilstuna here.

Elfsborg vs Eskilstuna: Bet Tips
