Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 29 June 2019
Kick off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Falcon Alkohol Arena (Falkenberg).
The home side are currently lurking in the relegation zone with seven points and are just a single point away from hitting rock bottom in the table.
Their last game on home soil against Kalmar finished in a stalemate, with the hosts failing to find the back of the net despite making a total of ten attempts at goal. The squad also enjoyed the majority of possession with the ball but ultimately fluffed their chances of grabbing a much needed three points.
Elfsborg, who are currently eighth in the league with seventeen points, were also held to a draw in their last away match against Kalmar, with the match ending 1-1 at the end of the ninety minutes.
Both the teams failed to break the deadlock in the opening half and a clear decider was missing till the 79th minute, when Gustav Henriksson, unfortunately, turned the ball into his own net while trying to clear a low cross from the right flank.
However, it took his team just three minutes to reply with a goal at the other end through Simon Strand who drove a low powerful shot past the keeper and into the back of the net.

Falkenberg vs Elfsborg Prediction
The visitors are the clear favorites to take the win when they travel to the Falcon Alkohol Arena to clash with the home side.
Jimmy Thelin’s side have lost just two out of their last five matches on the road while the hosts are without a single win in their previous five fixtures at home. The latter also managed to score just one goal in those last five games and have conceded a total of eight goals in the process.
Additionally, the squad have just one win on home soil this season. Considering the run of form that they are currently on, we can certainly rule out their chances of getting a second home win this weekend.
The game is unlikely to be a high scoring one and is likely to produce less than 2.5 goals in the ninety minutes.
