Falkenberg vs Djurgarden Prediction & Match Preview

Falkenberg vs Djurgarden
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Falcon Alkoholfri Arena (Falkenberg).

Djurgarden will have a nice opportunity to return to winning ways after a streak of four successive matches without a victory. Blaranderna lost two and drew two of past four games to ruin a promising start to the new Allsvenskan campaign. They dropped down to 7th place as a consequence, but mid-week’s tie with rock-bottomed Falkenberg should really give the visitors a chance to bounce back and get their campaign up and running.

The hosts returned to the elite tier of Swedish football after spending two years in the second division. They instantly experienced the strength of a higher division football as the team led by Hans Eklund claimed no more than five points in opening eight rounds. Falkenberg did show improvements in their defensive displays in past two rounds which saw them lose 1-2 at home to leaders Malmo and play a goalless draw away at AFC Eskilstuna at the weekend.

Falkenberg vs Djurgarden: Head-to-head

Djurgarden were much more successful in short history of this rivalry.

Blaranderna won five and lost one of six meetings with Falkenberg (3-13 goal difference in the process).

Falkenberg vs Djurgarden: Prediction

Djurgarden made a perfect start to the new season with two wins and a draw in opening three matches. However, they then suddenly began to find goals hard to come by. Kim Bergstrand’s troops failed to bag two or more goals in any of past five league rounds. They drew 1-1 away at Helsingborg before falling 0-2 at home to defending champions AIK last weekend.

Knowing about Falkenberg’s improvements in terms of defensive displays in recent outings, we notice the value in backing the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.05. The away win has to be an option, but we will be brave enough and back Djurgarden to win 0-1 (correct score pick) at 8.00 odds.

Falkenberg vs Djurgarden: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.05 (21/20)
  • Djurgarden to win 0-1 @ 8.00 (7/1).
