Halmstad vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Orjans Vall.
Elfsborg raised their game significantly after somewhat of a slower kick off to the new Allsvenskan campaign.
The visitors will have a nice chance to continue from where they stopped before the break this weekend when they are about to travel to Orjans Vall to take on the struggling Halmstad side.
The league’s newcomers just can’t seem to find the right shape in the elite class of the Swedish football.
Halmstad took six points from the opening six rounds of the competition and they could have hardly imagined a worse finish to the first part of the season.
The hosts lost seven and drew one of their last eight Allsvenskan outings which caused the change on the bench as Igor Krulj is set to make his debut as a head coach of Halmstad this Saturday against Elfsborg.
The story is completely opposite with Elfsborg who have won three of their last four league fixtures to climb up to the eighth position in the standings.
Magnus Haglund’s men have had a successful test in mid-season as they claimed a 2-1 win over Kalmar last week.
Halmstad vs Elfsborg: Head to head
The head to head stats also favour the visitors who lead the tie by eight wins ahead of their 41st meeting with Halmstad.
Elfsborg picked up a comfortable 0-2 victory from the pre-season friendly back in late March.
Halmstad vs Elfsborg: Prediction
We’ll stick with the visitors who have a nice opportunity to keep the spell of excellent form going and take three points from Orjans Vall.
However, we’d suggest you to be careful with the stakes because of the potential new manager shock therapy.
