Goteborg vs Norrkoping
Date: Sunday, 28 July 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi (Göteborg).
Goteborg posted a 1-0 win against AFC Eskilstuna in their most recently concluded clash on home soil and although the margin seems narrow, the game was certainly anything but. The squad threatened to score a lot more and finished the ninety minutes with ten attempts at goal, seven of which were on target.
They were also impressive in their defensive third and restricted their foes from taking more than two feeble shots at goal, both of which were not even on target.
The away side came out on top with a comfortable 3-0 win against Ostersunds in their last tie at home. On the road, however, they lost to the same opponents by a disappointing 2-1 scoreline.
The visitors had more than enough opportunities to take the lead, with six of their shots making the goalkeeper work. However, the last gasp goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time granted Ostersunds with all three points.
Considering that they are just two points adrift of Goteborg in the table, Norrkoping will be the ones desperate to land the win on Sunday.

Goteborg vs Norrkoping Prediction
The hosts are a force to reckon with at home and have failed to pick up a win on just one occasion so far.
Goteborg have also been faring well against teams from inside the top ten, and have scored twelve goals in their last eight home matchups while conceding just thrice.
Their foes, on the other hand, have not been at their best defensively in their trips on the road, and have been at the receiving end of eleven goals so far, while netting thirteen.
With both sides racking up the goals tally, expect them to find the back of the net without fail this weekend.
However, the promising run that Goteborg is going through at the moment, on home soil, is certain to see them edge past Norrkoping at the end of the ninety minutes.
