Hacken vs GIF Sundsvall
Date: Saturday, 7 July 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Bravida Arena, Gotteborg.
GIF Sundsvall picked up an important 1-3 victory on Tuesday evening when they dispatched the rock-bottomed Sirius in the first Allsvenskan fixture after the summer break.
The team which barely secured the elite class survival in the previous term climbed up to the sky-high sixth position in the league ladder.
They are as many as 13 points above the red zone (positions currently held by the likes of Dalkurd and Sirius) and they’ll generally head into the weekend’s clash with Hacken high on confidence.
The hosts sit four points below after a rather poor finish to the first part of the season which saw them take no more than one point in three rounds.
Andreas Alm’s men had a semi-success in mid-season friendlies which saw them lose 1-2 to Elfsborg before beating Dalkurd 2-0 on the home patch.
Hacken vs Sundsvall: Head-to-head
- Hacken lead the head to head tie by a single win (eight to seven) ahead of the landmark 20th meeting with GIF Sundsvall.
- Only one of last five head to head encounters brought three or more goals.
- The two teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw in the Svenska Cupen clash in March this year.
Hacken vs Sundsvall: Prediction
Even though Hacken had a dismal finish to the first half of the season in May, avoiding a defeat will be quite a significant challenge for GIF Sundsvall here.
Getingarna are very tough to beat in their own backyard where they’ve been almost impeccable since the start of the season.
Hacken won three and drew three of five home ties this term bagging as many as five goals in the thumping of Elfsborg in mid-May.
Sundsvall enjoy a much better campaign compared to the previous edition, but they are still pretty easy to break down on travels which is why we are not quite optimistic regarding their chances of keeping things tight at the back at Bravida Arena.
The home win looks good at 1.50, while we also suggest Hacken to net two or more goals in the match at the odds of 1.57.
