Hacken vs Kalmar
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Bravida Arena (Gothenburg).
Hacken is 12 points ahead of the visitors in the table, with just 2 losses in their 13 league appearances so far this season. They had a 2-1 win at home against Norrkoping in their last match in the schedule. So, playing at home after a home win will probably boost up the morale of the players.
On the contrary, Kalmar has won only two of their 13 league clashes until now. They have been in the campaign without a win for the past ten fixtures, with just three draws in it. With such a dry run in the schedule, Nanne Bergstrand and his men will have busy work in the middle.
The host has not lost at home in the league this season and has conceded only 2 goals in their 7 attempts so far. In the meantime, the Red Brothers have only one win in their 6 away games and will visit after a 0-3 loss at home against Orebro in the last clash.

Hacken vs Kalmar Prediction
With the best home record in the campaign this season, it is unlikely to see Hacken give away three points to rock-bottom Kalmar at Bravida Arena. Besides, the visitor is on a winless run in the league and hasn’t won in any h2h clashes with the host since 2017.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters based on the host’s excellent league form and Kalmar’s poor away form. The host is likely to slot in two goals and hence, the tip for Hacken to score over 1.5 goals will come in handy for the encounter.
