Hacken vs Helsingborg: Preview and Prediction

Hacken vs Helsingborg:
Swedish Allsvenskan,
Date: Sunday, 31-July-2016,
Kick-Off: 16:30 UK,
Venue: Bravida Arena (Goteborg).

An in-form Hacken look to turn the heat on the relegation threatened Helsingborg when the two sides meet at Bravida Arena on Sunday evening. The teams met in the reverse fixture a week ago and Hacken ran 2-0 winners, courtesy of two first half goals.

Hacken are unbeaten in the last 7 Swedish league games and find themselves at 7th in the league table. They are at a 5 point distance from the third placed IFK Goteborg and are with a good chance of qualifying for the European football next season. But there is immense pressure from a number of teams around them, which makes the second round of the league fixtures pretty interesting.

Helsingborg are 12th in the standings are coming on the back of 4 defeats in their last 5 league games. They had won just once during their last 7 matches, however they managed only 5 wins from 15 matches so far this season. Currently they are at a 3 point gap from the relegation zone and must start doing well if they are to stay up this season.

The last three home games of Hacken at home had witnessed both teams scoring and all of them witnessed over 3.5 goals. So I will be backing both teams to score here and to be on the safer side I will go with over 2.5 goals.

On current form Hacken are heavy favourites and they should win this by a clear margin. I do not expect the visitors to trouble them at all.
