Hammarby got off to a dream start to the new Allsvenskan season, but their form has seen a massive stumbling block in the last couple of rounds.

The Bajen took only one point from last three league games to drop down to the second place in the league ladder as a result. They went on the short summer break as table-toppers and everyone expected a bright start after the interval, but Ostersunds grabbed the spoils in a 1-2 victory away at Tele2 Arena last weekend.

Bajen will face a serious challenge in an attempt to arrest the current slump in form. They are about to tackle the in-form Elfsborg side in the last game of the Matchday on Monday evening at Boras Arena.

Di Gule have been flying high recently and they will come into this on the back of five subsequent victories, including two mid-season friendlies against Hacken and FC Helsingor).

Elfsborg vs Hammarby: Prediction

Substitute striker Viktor Prodell bagged two goals within two minutes to complete a stunning comeback for Elfsborg away at Orebro last Sunday. His goals maintained team’s inspiring form in the final third as Di Gule notched at least two goals in each of last five games in all competitions.
