Elfsborg vs Norrkoping
Date: Monday, 6 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Boras Arena (Boras).
Elfsborg ell confounded their pre-season ambitions in six opening rounds of Allsvenskan. They climbed up to third place after a phenomenal streak of three wins and a draw in past four matches. Jimmy Thelin’s men were flying high attackingly as they bagged four goals in each of last two victories over Orebro and Sirius.
Striker Pawel Cibicki is proving out to be a fantastic acquisition head of this season for Elfsborg. The Swedish youngster is Leeds’ loanee who spent last season in Norwegian Eliteserien with Molde. He notched four goals in six appearances for Elfsborg so far in Allsvenskan. He bagged three goals in last two rounds and will no doubts be the main threat for Norrkoping’s goal on Monday evening at Boras Arena.

Elfsborg vs Norrkoping: Prediction
Norrkoping, who finished last season as runners-up, won just one of opening six games of the new season. They began with a 3-1 defeat at recently-promoted Helsingborg and went on to draw four and win one of following five matches.
Each of last four games Peking played in Allsvenskan produced goals at both ends. This has to be the scenario we are expecting to see on Monday knowing about Elfsborg’s free-scoring displays in past two rounds.
Peking conceded six goals in three away fixtures this season (1 loss and 2 draws). They will likely face troubles stopping red-hot Pawel Cibicki and we see a huge value in backing the Swedish forward to sore anytime at the odds of 2.87. Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score is a must-take bet at 1.90.
