Elfsborg vs Hacken
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 1 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Boras Arena 2 (Boras).
Elfsborg have escaped the immediate danger zone in Allsvenskan with a solid streak since late August, now hosting Haecken in the hope they can build on the six-game unbeaten streak across competitions and continue climbing the table late in the campaign.
Di Gule have narrowly beaten both Orebro and Hammarby in their last two outings, putting on great defensive displays and bagging six points with just two goals scored Obasi and Holst broke the deadlocks, respectively. Jimmy Thelin’s men will now want to show off as such a side at Boras Arena once again, promising a very solid challenge for the visitors.
Haecken have been in great shape recently too, though, and travel to Boras on the back of a three-game winning streak – where they beat Trelleborg, Gothenburg, and Kalmar with eight goals netted along the way. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular too but this hasn’t proven an overwhelming worry for manager Andreas Alm, as they keep coping with the top three thanks to their solid performances up front!
Elfsborg vs Hacken: Head-to-head
- Haecken have bagged a thrashing 5-0 win over the rivals at home earlier this season.
- Elfsborg have taken revenge in a June friendly, securing a 1-2 win at Bravida Arena.
- Di Gule have better overall head-to-head records, earning 17 wins and 10 draws in 36 games played total so far.

We have seen them cope well with big guns lately and we do believe they have what it takes for such a challenge on the day once again.
We do believe we’ll see goals on both ends and they could need to outgun the rivals to secure any points, as we also back Both teams to score at 1.57. Haecken have been scoring and conceding goals on the regular and we do believe they’ll do the same at Boras Arena on Monday evening!
