Hacken vs Varbergs Prediction & Match Preview

Hacken vs Varbergs
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 17 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Bravida Arena (Gothenburg).

Hacken won the away leg last week and will be happy to play at home this time. They took a lead in the first half and finished the game 1-3 in the end. Apart from the penalty they gave away which was converted, they had a good match last time around. So with home support, they are the favorites to get all three points on Monday.

The newbie is coming into this match after the same opposition in the reverse leg. They are finding life hard at the top tier and will need to rethink their strategy against big teams. From 15 games they have lost six and have only four wins to show for. Currently, they are on a seven-match winless run which includes three defeats.

Hacken vs Varbergs: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The reverse leg was the only competitive meeting between these two teams.
  • Hacken won that game away from home with a final score of 1-3.
  • Varbergs has no wins in their last seven league matches on the trot.

Hacken vs Varbergs: Prediction

After Malmo, Hacken has been the best team in home games. From eight home fixtures, they have five wins and the only one defeat. The recent defeat to Kalmar was shocking, but I hope they have learned from their mistakes in that match. On the other end, the visitors have lost three of their seven matches on the road and their only win came against Helsingborg who are in the relegation zone.

More than half of the goals that Varbergs have conceded so far came away from home. They have given away a total of 23 goals from the fifteen games until now. But the home team is one of the top scorers in the league which means we may be in for a high scoring match. So I am backing the hosts to win with over 2.5 goals in total.

Hacken vs Varbergs: Betting Tips

  • Hacken to win @ 1.50 (1/2).
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.70 (7/10).
