Hacken vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 14 May 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Bravida Arena (Goteborg)
Hacken host Elfsborg for their Matchday 8 clash on Monday evening on the back of a great 0-3 win over Trelleborgs, returning to the winning ways after a three-game winless streak and hoping they can build on their mid-table spot still early in the campaign.
Getingarna have been a very tough side to beat at Bravida Arena and they boast a three-game unbeaten streak here this term as well, beating Kalmar, Dalkurd, and holding table-toppers Hammarby to a 2-2 draw. They will now be very motivated to build on a solid start of the Allsvenskan season and capitalize on the rivals recent woes.
Indeed, Elfsborg have had troubles setting the wheels in motion as they earned just five points in seven games so far. They come into the match on the back of a goalless draw against AIK but have largely struggled to put on similar displays on the road – conceding three goals in three away games so far; and seeing losses at Kalmar and Sundsvall along the way.
Hacken vs Elfsborg: Head-to-head
Elfsborg have struggled for success at Bravida Arena too and they’ve suffered three losses on their last three trips here.
Haecken have earned a convincing 3-0 win here in their last head-to-head clash in September 2017.
We’ve seen three or more goals in four of the last five matchups.
Hacken vs Elfsborg: Prediction
We will now back Hacken to build on such records and bag the three points, as they have been in better shape recently and look very confident after a 0-3 win at Trelleborgs, going for a Home win at 1.57.
We do believe we’re in for another exciting challenge from the visitors, though, and that Hacken will be in for no easy task at Bravida Arena. We thus back a high-scoring match in Goteborg and we’ll go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.80 – which could be the best way to go about the fixture.
