Goteborg vs Trelleborgs
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi (Goteborg).
There’s ‘Clash of the Titans’ and then there is this game. One of the worst teams in the league is hosting quite easily the worst team in the league. But if you think that this fact in any way diminishes the excitement of the game, you are mistaken.
As we enter the final phase of the league, that’s when the fun starts. If the top-tier teams are battling for glory, the bottom-rung teams are battling for survival. And quite frankly, the battle for subsistence is a lot more fun than the race for the league. Though it should be mentioned that the fun is limited to neutral viewers.
Goteborg, with just two points in the last six matches, is hosting Trelleborgs, with one point in the last six matches.
Trelleborgs is deep into the relegation zone, whereas Goteborg is at the brink. Sirius and Brommapojkarna would pounce at the first sign of blood. So, Goteborg at home will be giving everything on the pitch.
Trelleborgs has nothing going for them this season. With just three wins from 24 matches, it would be a miracle if Trelleborgs grab the three points. Goteborg will never have another opportunity like this to distance themselves from the relegation zone.
All eyes will be on Goteborg’s Ellias Mar Omarsson with eight goals this season and Girogi Khairaishvili with six goals. The home fans would be hysterically cheering them on.

Goteborg vs Trelleborgs Prediction
With relegation already a virtual possibility, Trelleborgs is demoralised and despondent. They also have no reason to play defensive football. If they need some kind of miracle, they need positive results in the next six games. Expect a thrilling encounter between these two sides.
Goteborg will take advantage of Trelleborgs’ current predicament. The visitors have no option but to put numbers in front and try to score as many goals as possible, and for sure that would leave spaces at the back. Goteborg will win, and win convincingly.
More than 2.5 match goals will be scored in this fixture. Trelleborgs’ worrying away form as well as the fact that they have conceded 52 while scoring 18, will charge up the Goteborg attack even more.
