Hacken vs Mjallby
Date: 15 August 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Bravida Arena (Goteborg).
Hacken took advantage of a surprising goalless draw for Djurgarden away at Varnamo to regain the top spot in the Allsvenskan standings.
The team led by Norwegian manager Per Mathias Hogmo continued their fairytale campaign in this term of Allsvenskan last Monday when they demolished struggling Helsingborg 5-0 on the home patch.
Uddenas Oscar stole the show by completing a hat-trick on the occasion as Hacken allowed their rivals no more than five attempts in total during the 90 minutes of play at Bravida Arena.
The hosts are about to face a much more serious challenge this time around as the likes of Mjallby come to visit Bravida Arena in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 18.
The visitors enter the tie unbeaten in four straight games. They have been very tough to break down since the beginning of the season, especially on travels where their defensive-minded style is responsible for a 5-7 goal difference in 8 matches.
Mjallby won two and drew one of the previous three league outings. They held Elfsborg to a 1-1 draw eight days ago in the previous round.

Hacken vs Mjallby Prediction
This is the clash between the best attack in the league and one of the best defensive lines in the competition. It will be very interesting to see how a stern back line of Mjallby’s will cope with Hacken’s deadly offense which includes the division’s top scorer Alexander Jeremejeff.
Looking at the head to head record, Hacken’s impressive home form in this term of Allsvenskan, and the fact they are the current table-toppers, it is very hard to escape the home win pick at the 1.57 odds here. However, since we do expect to see something from the visitors, we will also back draw at the half time and Hacken’s win at the end at the exciting 4.33 odds.
