Elfsborg vs Kalmar
Date: Monday, 29 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Borås Arena (Borås).
Elfsborg have been struggling to come out on top in their last two trips on the road, and have lost by a goal difference of three goals on both occasions. Their last clash against Hammarby saw them pick the ball out of the back of their net five times and were able to reply with just two goals of their own.
The team made the goalkeeper work six times out of the thirteen attempts that they took at goal, by still finished the game which just two on the scorecard.
The hosts’ last clash on home soil, however, saw them hold their foes Helsingborg to a 1-1 draw.
Kalmar are on a four-match losing streak, two of which came away from home. They lost by a 3-1 scoreline in their last outing against fifteenth placed AFC Eskilstuna, despite having more shots on target than their foes in that tie.
The visitors are certainly the underdogs in this one and could see themselves in the relegation zone if they succumb to a third straight defeat this week.

Elfsborg vs Kalmar Prediction
The hosts are one of the only three teams so far to be unbeaten at home soil. Additionally, Elfsborg have not lost against Kalmar in their last three meetings at this venue either.
The away side’s recent run of form has been disappointing with just one win in their last eight games. They have also conceded eight goals in their last five outings alone with just one goal of their own in the bag.
With home advantage safely under their belt, expect Elfsborg to be the ones to come out on top at the end of the ninety minutes.
Given Kalmar’s poor attacking presence in the trips on the road, expect the hosts to be the only ones to find the back of the net in what is sizing up to be a low scoring clash.
