Goteborg vs Kalmar Swedish Allsvenskan 8 July 2018 by LeagueLane

IFK Goteborg vs Kalmar
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 8 July 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi, Goteborg.

Neither IFK Goteborg nor Kalmar have reasons to be proud of the way in which they finished the first half of the season. Blavitt clinched only a single point in last four league matches, a streak which saw the team drop down to 11th place as a result. Goteborg are now just three points above the danger area coming into the 12th round tie against Kalmar.

The visitors lost two and drew one of last three league games before the summer break proving out to be fairly easy to break down in the process. The BTTS pick “landed” in four of last five league games they’ve been part of which keeps this tie with a genuine prospect of offering a high-scoring affair on Sunday.

IFK Goteborg vs Kalmar: Head-to-head

  • Goteborg have been the more successful outfit over the course of history.
  • They won 18 and lost 12 ahead of the landmark 40th meeting with Kalmar.
  • Blavitt won 10 and lost 5 of 20 home matches against Roda Broder.
  • Both teams were on the scoreline in four of last six head to head matches.

IFK Goteborg vs Kalmar: Prediction

Since both teams have been rather easy to break down in the finish of the first half of the season, we will back the BTTS pick as the main betting option here. The odds are set at 1.80. The bookies generally see the hosts as 2.15 favourites, but it is really hard to recognize the value there knowing they are winless in last four league outings.

On the other hand, Kalmar continued to show the lack of meticulousness at the back conceding as many as six goals in mid-season friendlies against Norrkoping and OB. To sum it all up, the best value is in the draw, set at 3.30 odds, given that neither of the two sides look to have what it takes for grabbing the spoils here.
