Elfsborg vs Helsingborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 8 July 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Borås Arena (Borås).
Both teams have been struggling quite a bit for wins. The respective bad forms have affected their standings in the league table as well.
Hosts for the day, Elfsborg find themselves in the mid-table, but if they are not able to put an end to their winless run anytime soon, with the tight competition in the lower tier for spots, a stint in the relegation zone is a firm probability.
To add insult to injury, they lost against relegation-battler Falkenbergs the last day, who at that point, had recorded just a single win this season.
Fellow exit-zone contender, Helsingborg is the visitors for this fixture and seems to be ready for the challenge, after their win the last match-day, over Orebro, and that too on the road.
They are trying to stay afloat the relegation line, and with the bottom three squads having tough match-ups this week, it’s an opportunity for them to post some points on the board.

Elfsborg vs Helsingborg Prediction
Helsingborg might have won their last game, but keep in mind that they were winless in 13 of their last 15 matches on the road. They had also lost four of their last six and conceded two or more goals in three of the last five.
In addition, the team was winless in ten of their last eleven fixtures and could score just a single goal from their last three ties.
Coming to the hosts, they might be on a bit of a lull these last few match-days, but they have been performing well in front of their home crowd. At present, they are unbeaten in their last 11 attempts at home and let in a total of just one goal from the last four such fixtures.
Moreover, 15 of the last 18 h2h wins went to the sides that had home advantage. Taking all these into account, Helsingborg is about to have a tough outing this week.
