IFK Goteborg vs Sundsvall:
Date: Sunday, July 10, 2016,
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK
Venue: Gamla Ullevi (Goteborg).
IFK Goteborg look to carry over their good form in all competitions when they host GIF Sundsvall on Sunday afternoon.
Goteborg are coming on the back of a 7-1 aggregate win against Llandudno FC in the first qualifying round of Europa League. They are currently fifth in the Allsvenskan and went on to the mid-season break on the back of consecutive wins. Moreover, they had lost just once in their last 6 games, winning 4 and drawing 1.
Sundsvall are 2 points behind Goteborg at sixth positing in the league standings. They made a good start to the season campaign and lost just 3 games so far this season. Sundsvall are also the third best defensive side in the league after conceding just 15 goals from 12 matches so far this season. But scoring goals at the right time still remains a problem for this side.

IFK Goteborg vs Sundsvall: Predictions
Goteborg and Sundsvall are closely placed in the league standings at fifth and sixth respectively at a 2 point gap. A win for the hosts will see them move as high as third, while the guests could overtake Goteborg if they manage to come out with full points. For these obvious reasons both of these two sides would want nothing less than a win on Sunday.
The recent meetings between these two sides had witnessed a higher number of goals. And six of the last 7 matches had witnessed over 3.5 goals and I bet we are very likely to see over 2.5 goals here.
Goteborg are clear favorites for me to win this tie and I believe they will not disappoint us in Sunday’s Allsvenskan fixture.
