Goteborg vs Norrkoping
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi.
Norrkoping have been struggling a lot to find the shape from the very start of the season when they even challenged Malmo FF in the battle for the top of the standings.
The latest of the failures for Peking happened on Thursday evening when they suffered a humiliating Europa League elimination to Lithuanian Trakai after penalties.
Can they get their campaign back on track on Sunday when they travel to Gamla Ullevi to tackle IFK Goteborg?
Blavitt have been enjoying a decent attacking shape after the mid-season break, but it still did not help them clinch wins in each of their last three outings as the defense has been non-existent lately.
Alf Westerberg took over Jorgen Lennartsson on the bench after Goteborg’s 4-2 defeat to Orebro two weeks ago, but he failed to clinch the win on the debut allowing as many as two goals in a four-goal thriller against the same opponent seven days later.
Peking have also conceded four goals to Orebro at the start of the month. The loss to AIK two weeks ago made it two defeats in the bounce away from home for Jens Gustafsson’s men who dropped down to the fifth position in the league standings.
IFK Goteborg vs Norrkoping: Head to head
Norrkoping have been the dominant side in the most recent history of head to head encounters with IFK Goteborg as they have won four of their last five meetings with Peking.
This includes a 2-0 victory from early-June this year when Moberg-Karlsson and Niclas Eliasson packed goals for Norrkoping at Ostgotaporten.
IFK Goteborg vs Norrkoping: Prediction
Both teams showed plenty of holes in the defense over the last couple of weeks and we have no other option but to expect a goal fest this Sunday at Gamla Ullevi.
