IFK Gothenburg

Goteborg are having a forgettable season in 2017. Their major issue is inconsistency – for instance, in the last five games, they won and lost two games apiece in addition to a draw. Last weekend, they beat Jonkopings 2-0 on the road. With only 17 points collected, Goteborg are only in the eleventh position.

Despite being unbeaten throughout the whole season, Goteborg have accumulated poor 7 points on the home turf. Their record reads W1 D4, with only four goals allowed and seven goals netted.

Halmstads BK

The visitors are sitting next-to-last with 7 points earned. They ended their losing streak last weekend with a 1-1 draw against Elfsborg. Halmstads won only one game this season which makes them second-worst since only AFC Eskilstuna are winless.

On the road, Halmstads BK are on a four-game losing streak; the only bright side is that they scored four goals in the aforementioned four visits.

IFK Gothenburg vs Halmstads BK: Head-to-head

Halmstads are winless against Goteborg since 2010. Last season the two sides haven’t collided in the domestic league, but Goteborg inscribed 3-0 victory in Swedish Cup. The visitors have two insignificant victories in Göteborg since they date back to 2000 and 1998.

IFK Gothenburg vs Halmstads BK: Prediction

The forthcoming match is a must-win situation for the hosts. They need to start climbing the ladder, while Halmstads are relatively an easy opponent. However, the visitors often score on the road while Goteborg conceded a goal in 4 out of last 5 home games, so an upset is possible on Monday.
